Hi! I am not a medical expert however i experience some stress due to my physical problems, so i think i can understand what you may be going though.

Please don't be sad or nervous because it's of no help. No doubt some things are not at all easy to deal with and something are not so much in our control, Try to take life as a challenge. A person's qualities are of superior importance than appearance. True friends will understand this.

Give up the old perceptions and do not limit yourself of what you thought earlier. Just continuously try new ways of thinking and find out what's the best you can make of everything.  Always respect Yourself, and have self confidence. Please try to refresh yourself and rediscover your strengths and talents. Try to find what new work or activity makes you interested and happy. Just ignore negative things. Don't give them any importance. Give your well-being the highest importance and priority. As the saying goes, do what you like or sometimes, it's better to like what you do to become happy. If it's possible explore options of taking up some good work if you like. Try something like meditation or spiritual activities and going on walk with friends.  Also always  be good to Yourself, and appreciate yourself for it. You can be your own best friend!
