months before that I lost 60 lbs (in those 2 months).I was not on any diet.I was not interested in food.

Hi--are you asking if you might have stopped taking in anything by mouth including water?

I think with the degree of depression you had back then that, yes, in time you would have stopped both food and water and unless someone had found you in time you would have died from dehydration.
