Low self esteem, extreme anger
I am a 33 YO stay-at-home mom. I quit my job after my son was born. I have turned into a total slob, extremely angry at the littlest of things, don't care about my appearance, keep watching TV in all my free time and put on a lot of weight. If that's not all, I feel strangely attracted to celebrities off late. My husband is always too busy and I have nobody to talk to about my inner thoughts. I just wish I could escape reality and go back to being single. Even then, I don't recall being happy. I feel angry and frustrated and unheard and useless.

You need to be mindful of changing circumstances in your life and be present to how it may be affecting your emotions, thinking, behavior etc. Stop fighting with your emotions. Keep taking actions to overcome what is not working without getting too emotional about it, while you enjoy what is working. Keep appreciating everyone around and yourself for the efforts.
Next Steps
Start scheduling your activities to keep yourself busy, occupied with meaningful, structured activities which you enjoy. Follow them consistently irrespective of how you feel. Focus on action rather than complaining. Don't compare yourself with others or even yourself in the past. It doesn't make any sense. Be in present all the time.
