This is something that you seek professional help for, to help you figure it out. Depression sounds like the main thing here, and is causing everything else to feel even worse. There is help available for this. Contact your family doctor first, and then you can have your doctor recommend a counselor. I would do this sooner than later. You really can get over this!

Anorexia nervosa. It requires psychiatric treatment with someone interested in that problem or a center catering to such patients. There is hope and there is help. Don't give up..
