I've just had enough

I wasn't sure where to put this but I feel it's linked to my mental health. I have an unhealthy issue with food in that I have problems eating too much. I'm raising two children with autism one of whom is non verbal. My dh works long hours and I feel very emotionally exhausted. I don't go out anymore as I'm tired and recently I've gained at least a stone and a half. I feel disgusting. I tick a lot of boxes for food addiction. I just don't know what to do or where to turn anymore. I don't feel I can talk to my mum as she and my dh have a very fragile relationship and anything I say she uses against him. I'm tired. None of my friends are really that interested or seem to care. I'm not even sure what I really want anymore.

You have come to the right place to post questions like that if you want somewhere to talk and not be judged.
I suspect your eating may be a MH issue in reaction to stress.

By way of an intro, I am a manic depressive. I suffered a complete breakdown some 10 years back but have been steadily making my back to good health, (there were also other medical complications at that time). I remember my dark days and try, (some might suggest not always successfully) to offer a hand and a listening ear.
