Aw, I'm so sorry you hit that bump. I get that, believe me. And I'm right with you on the medicine thing.
I'm wondering if you can get your doctor to put you on a different med. Not all of them cause weight gain. Zoloft, specifically, can actually lead to decreased appetite - although I've not found that to be the case with me, lol!
Also, the best thing for anxiety and depression is exercise. Even if you can just get up for 20 minutes, those endorphins will help you get through a lot. I was hospitalized for my anxiety/depression, and when I was in the outpatient program, they were really good about checking in with us about exercise. I've noticed that I always have worse depression/anxiety if I'm not exercising. So I use that as a motivation more than anything else. Maybe that will work for you, too.
Hang in there!
