Depression At It's Best

My name is Tanya, I am 18 years old. I graduated high school in June of 2012. When I was in high school my life was perfect. I had friends, a boyfriend that loved me. I was pretty much the happiest I've ever been in my life. Until after graduation I started to lose friends and my boyfriend of one year left me. I became very depressed because I had no friends and felt that nobody cared about me. I would just lay in my bed from the moment I woke up until I went to bed again. I would only eat one little piece of food and that was it for me. I lost over 20lbs and I was already underweight to begin with. Anorexia is something that is very hard to overcome. It's hard for me to eat or even think about eating. I pretty much lost appetite and the desire to eat. Can you imagine laying in your bed all day and night depressed to death and starving yourself? My weight got down to about 80lbs and I started to lose my hair, none of my clothes fit me. I became very weak and everytime I moved my bones would crack. It's been 3 months since I starved myself but I'm slowly progressing. I have gained about 3lbs already and im on my journey to get up to 120lbs. It's a struggle and very painful but I believe in myself :)

I would love to get some good advice from people struggling with this also.
