Try to build confidence.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for asking from HCM for your health related doubts

I can understand your concern. First of all you have to stop thinking bad about yourself. Try to forget the past and start thinking about your present time. You are 24 now and now you can be sexually active. You should not think that you can't socialise with anyone. Because of psychological trauma you had when you were 15 because your boyfriend was mean to you, you developed the problems. But that does't mean that these problems should remain for life.

Keep one thing in mind that being overweight is not an important point. Thinness or slim bodies are just man made things and you should ignore these things. You should just remain fit and healthy for your health and this will keep your mind confident and you will develop good social relationships. Once you develop a good relationship then you can become sexually active. If you have any kind of anxiety then you can take anti anxiety drugs.

Thanks
