Without delving into much detail, I've been attracted to someone for almost a year now. Normally it'd be petty and menial in terms of its effect on my overall emotions, but I've been feeling a significant decline in my mood over the past six months; I fit all of the symptoms of depression. I've tried to limit contact with this person numerous times, but I usually can't sustain it for more than a few weeks. Even though I doubt this person is the entire (or even a significant) cause of my depression, I keep thinking that I would be in a much better emotional state if I was cut off from them. As I said earlier, a situation like this would typically be pretty meaningless, but I'm starting to come to realizations about friends, family, my future, etc. I feel guilty that I'm attracted to them. Because of that I don't talk about it (or my depression in general) with anyone. I'm getting worried about the effects all of this is having on me. I lost most of my appetite a couple of months ago and have entered a phase of not eating for days, which I sometimes perpetuate to starve myself. I go through mood swings quickly, which likely explains why I'm writing this now (I might regret it tomorrow). And I mentioned before, I think this person is merely the catalyst for my emotional change, but many other things are the reason for my emotions. Anyways... advice?
