Psychiatrist 's  Response

first of all, relax and don't worry

As per your description, you are experiencing depressive symptoms which may be the continuation of grief reaction and for that u need some antidepressants/antianxiety drugs as well as psychotherapy.

So i advise you to consult a psychiatrist soon and your problem will be easily solved

Your weight gain or blood pressure problem may be linked to depression or there could be some other medical etiology too. So you should also consult a general physician.

Good Luck
