Well at least your not taking 8 different meds, including 3 month birth control (causes severe weight gain, one causes nausea and vomiting, another extreme nausea, other one might cause extreme vomiting and diarreah, another sleepiness and appetite loss, another weight gain and weight loss, and I could go on with the others but u get it right? Strange body functions leading to mostly weight gain....
OP, stay positive and look at the good parts of this situation. 1. You have enough money to be able afford the pills (and not stricken by poverty or homeless or something awful like that), 2. You can always lose the weight, 3. Now you're on medication and you be happier in general :), 4. You're still here to post it on FML. Look at it from an outsider's view - you'll be surprised what you may find. :)
148^ Agreed! Sometimes there are better ways to fight depression, other than pharmaceuticals with awful side effects. Respect your body, and know what you are putting into it. Don't give up, keep trying until you find what works best for you. Try getting out, adding to your social life. Maybe volunteer your time to help less fortunate people than yourself. Good luck, you have a tough battle, but you can win.
Hmm, you have the choice of being depressed, or the choice of being fat and happy. Which will you pick? BUM BUM BUMMM!
I'm sure if you exercise regularly and have a healthy diet, you won't gain too much weight.
#4 you're an idiot. Drugs that cause weight gain mess with your metabolism and or appetite. It's not a simple mind over matter thing. Didja think that drugs that cause drowsiness can be overcome by just setting more alarms and drinking coffee? Stop talking out your ass.
All that weight gain is just gonna make you more depressed...better get a fourth! -_-
Ok miss no sense of humor. I still think it was quite funny :) and i was being sarcastic, this person should not be taking 3 different medications anyhow. If they are that depressed then they need serious help. Not just pills and more drugs. People these days just want to hide their problems with more and more medications instead of actually dealing with their problems. That's the only way it's gonna get better. And any person that gains a ton of weight is going to be more depressed. That's a fact.
Serious help as in therapy. Not just drugged up and doped out to avoid their problems. Sounds like boots with the fur girl is a first had expert in the matter however. Something you would like to confess...mhm...oh and people who are thumbing down my original comment are probably just more depressed people who are mad that I am questioning their precious medications. They know I'm right and can't handle the truth.
No, actually I don't have any issues with depression and I never had. When people are prescribe medication guess who prescribes it... A THERAPIST. From the way you make it sound people with issues shouldn't take medication. So, I should just go to therapy for being diabetic and forget my medication all together? Yeah, I don't fucking think so. Stop making ridiculous comments if you're just going to make yourself sound more stupid.
Maybe people who are that extremely depressed SHOULD end their misery. If they aren't enjoying life then why prolong the inevitable? The world is getting really overpopulated anyways. If you don't like your life than move on and hope for a better one in the next life. I believe in reincarnation anyhow. She is way happier now somewhere! That is sad though. I'm sorry your mom can't see her anymore. But I trust she is in a happier place now.
