Help! I've gained 20kg and self-esteem has drastically deteriorated. watch

    I literally can't believe it. I've always been a shy person, my whole life I've been bullied etc. Recently, I've gained about 20kg, from a slim person (since I was young) I've become like a size 14. I hate it. I don't know why though. My self-esteem has dropped with this and the way I dress and finally, the way I behave around others. I am so reserved now and experience high levels of social anxiety. What can I do? I'm in the middle of exams (GCSEs) and don't know what to do. It's really affecting me, more than I thought. I am no longer bullied, people just take advantage of my inability to be assertive. Everyone takes advantage, never say thank you and are nice to me alone and rude in front of others. Do they think I'm a fool? I hate people thinking this way! Somebody, please help? :confused:
