Hello, I`m a 22 year old 5'11" female. I have been medically fine up until about six months ago. I started getting really really tired. I started sleeping more and more. I actually had to give up hours at work because I was unable to perform my job anymore due to being exhausted. I began gaining weight. I've always been overweight, but I maxed out at about 230-250, which in my opinion isn't awful considering my stature. In six months, my weight has shot up to 300+ pounds. Recently, for about three weeks now, I have also had trouble with eating. Almost every day, at least one meal a day, I throw all of it up. This is becoming more and more frequent. Today, for example, I threw up 2 out of 3 meals.

In six months, I've turned into a mess. I sleep 9-13 hours a night, and am still tired. I`m hungry all the time, but I don't want to eat, because I know chances are good it`ll make me vomit. Even when I do eat, I puke everything up before it can digest and I can get any nutrition from it. And I`m STILL gaining weight!! I don`t know what to do. I currently don't have health insurance because it's so expensive, but I`m going on MNCare in about a month. In the meantime, though, I need help!!
