The better of two evils?
Tuesday, June 04, 2013
I've decided to stop taking one of my anti depressants. Abilify. I didn't realize how many people gained weight on it. I can't say for sure that it's the reason I steadily gained 20 lbs but I think it's a factor. I've quit cold turkey. So far the withdrawl is weird. I feel odd and nauseus and surprise, I have no appetite. It's been three days since I went off of it and today is the first time in months that I didn't overeat, so I think there's a correlation.
It's a vicious circle. I feel depressed when I'm overweight. Anti depressants make me overweight. What do I choose? Being fat and stable or being thin and sometimes going into a dark place?
