Please make an appointment with your medical doctor. I hope you already have since this letter came in weeks ago. Not everything is a psychological issue. If you don’t know why you’re upset and you are having trouble eating, it may be that there is a medical reason. Get that checked out first. If your doctor examinines you thoroughly and runs some tests and you check out okay, then consider seeing a counselor.

I wish you well.
