Am I right, fellow med takers?
I am still making peace with the 8# I have gained…

  1. I am working hard to lose the weight I have gained from my various medications. Thank you for reminding me that I am not alone!

  2. I struggle with what my doctor lables borderline anorexia as well as bipolar disorder. I was on some meds that made me put on 30 lbs FAST and I was eating like a bird. I eventually snapped and basically called her and said “I can be crazy but I won’t be fat and crazy that’s just too much” (ED talking). I was off meds for 3 days, convinced they were evil and I was “free”… geez. My advice: if the weight gain is too much for you, demand switching meds. Unless the med is working really really well. But _don’t_ do what I did… please! But I believe we (as people with bipolar disorder) don’t have to put up with it. My dr knows that I can’t take drugs that cause weight gain, period.
