Health Issues

Since past 3 years i noticed my sisters nature changing. She faced a breakup right after my b.com. That time our family supported her and she recovered. But she lost concentration in studies and had to leave CS. Then she still gathered courage and joined M.com but she faced emotional ragging due to her age and had to leave M.com. She was diagonised with hypothyroidism. She was a college topper. But after B.com due to these incidents she is facing unemployment. Her morale has completely broken down. She is cared to trust people especially any guy for for marriage proposal. She has anger issues, short temper due to her past. Due to weight gain she feels demotivated and dont feel her life is worth living. She feels negativity around her. She prefer being lonely and she doesnt get proper sleep. When she talks about her past she has an outburst of tears. She has habit of keeping her sadness to herself but i feel this is causing her depression.

Sorry to hear about your sister.
Symptoms such as sadness of mood,  irritability, disturbed sleep, weight gain, crying spells, feeling helpless, lonely, hopeless , demotivated are all signs that she is depressed since quite some time. Since she is also suffering from hypothyroidism her symptoms of depression will worsen.
It is affecting her overall life, her personal life is stalled, she is unemployed. As the functionality is affected it should be of concern and psychiatric help should be taken at the earliest.
Depression is a result of neurotransmittor imbalance in the brain resulting due to environmental or bodily stressor in a geneticy vulnerable individual.
There is treatment available to set the same correct, dont let her suffer too long and waste her precious life productivity.
If the efficiency is 100 percent there is no sense is living life at 50 percent efficiency because of an invisible disability.
Next Steps
please see a psychiatrist
