Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I'm struggling with my weight and feeling really down about it. I think I weigh around 100 kg, and people, including those close to me, often make fun of me, which is really getting to me. I feel tired and just want to disappear. Unfortunately, I can't exercise where I am, so apart from that, can you help me find ways to control my food intake? It feels like I'm addicted to food, and I don't know what to do.
