Consider it tuition: Hopefully you've learned a valuable lesson - it's costing you a lot. Don't ditch on yourself. Have a good exam by a good doctor to assess the degree of damage if any. Treat it as well as possible. Plan and follow a proper diet/life style regimen and work w/ a coach-type counselor if necessary. Cheating your own body is a mistake - learn to play fair and your life will be much happier. Best!
