Thanks to my psychiatric meds I’ve gained about thirty pounds this year. I feel so hungry all of the time and I never seem to feel full. The worst has been my binges on sweets. I know I have to take my psych meds but I hate this side effect. I battle with depression and poor body image and this weight gain certainly isn’t helping things. I hate myself right now.

I’ve got some motivation to lose weight though. I am going to BlogHer’13 at the end of July and I want to look my best. So I have a little less than two months. I am doing well not eating sweets but I am still battling the feeling to keep nibbling throughout the day. Nights are the worst though, I just feel SO hungry.

Between weight gain and sexual side effects, a lot of people chose not to go on these much needed drugs. I know I MUST be on pysch drugs but I could sure do without these side effects.

Have you gained weight on psychiatric medications? Has weight gain made you go off your drugs?

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
