[B]ExerciseFanatika[/B] First of all, Welcome fellow NYer.
I am so sorry to hear about all of your losses. I know it can be very hard.
I am very concerned for you. I think the reason you are depressed and not losing weight is starvation. Please read Primal 101 on the blog or the "Start Here" thread on the forum. I think that you will feel better once you begin to give your body the nutrition it needs.
Oh yeah, I meant to say a little about that. ExerciseFanatika, starvation will make your body store more fat, or so I've heard at least, another problem could be acidity. Both eating acidic foods and eating barely anything at all will both increase the acidity of your body. Some people have a natural tendency to lose weight rapidly once this occurs and others start storing fat as a buffer against the acidity. I heard Tony Robbins say that so if I'm wrong blame him.
So, vegetables and water.
Andy, thank you for the magnesium info. I'll do some reading on magnesium oil.
And I definitely agree with Pebbles67 and Andy on the thoughts on starvation. Sorry, my reading comprehension is somewhat low with this nasty headcold :).
Feel free to add me if you want a more comprehensive list of all the things I've tried and what I found helpful. At this point I've gone from full-on social anxiety to the point of where I could be considered just a shy person, and always progressing a little each week so I hope to be at a level of confidence I consider acceptable within the next month, or so I plan at least.
Fanatic, I am so very sorry for the losses you have been dealt in recent years. You are a much stronger person than I think you are given credit for being.
Reference your weight - I'm with everyone else. You need to eat more. Have you read the Primal Blueprint? If you haven't you might consider it. Also the Primal 101 is a great starting point. We're all here to support, so if you have questions, please raise them.
Tasha, there was something I was going to talk to you about, but I lost it... hmmmm... hopefully it'll come back. :) I should probably go back through the last couple of pages and see if I can find it.
OH! Have you tried Mucinex for your snot problem?? It might help relieve you of a bit of this flow. I realize it's not homeopathic, but sometimes we need a little boost. :)

Hush... Some homeopathic stuff works very well.

umm, science called and would like a word with you.
I have been having issues with the snot as well. I use Zyrtec and Nasonex and those help me the best.
Anxiety is trickier. I've been dealing with it since early childhood. Most of the time now, I rarely have issues with it, but when I do, it's horrible.
