    Its normal for weight loss/gain with stress. I wouldn't worry too much. I would try to calm down and find hobbies to do to keep you from being so stressed. I don't know what your going through but issues with family doesn't sound good. Try talking to them work out whatever is going on. Go out with friends, sit down read book, exercise, find a hobbie and stay busy. If it goes on longer then worry about seeing a dr. I would probably call one see what they have to say so you don't have to go to the drs but they would know what you can do.

    IT's not abnormal for emotions to affect appetite and weight. You don't give your height, so we cannot know your healthy weight range.

    More importantly, is hydration and good nutrition when you do eat, so that you don't become malnourished or chronically dehydrated. Vitamin and mineral deficiency and hormone or electrolyte imbalances are a health concern.

    It always helps to take a Vitamin-B Complex and multivitamin every day (at different times of the day). Take them with a bit of food so they metabolize correctly.

    Don't be concerned if it's only been happening a month, but if it continues 3 or more months, you might consider psychiatric help.
