Going of meds...again
Tuesday, May 20, 2014
I've gone back and forth with anti depressants and abilify and I think it's that time again to step back. The effects are minuscule yet the weight gain is astronomical. So if I weigh the benefits, I have to conclude that it's time to let them go. I'm on three different happy pills yet spent the better part of the day curled up in bed, crying and fighting pill induced food cravings.
So I need an alternative. I'll try upping my cardio from just relaxed walks and dust of my zumba dvds. For the first week I'm just going to try those ten minute spark videos and yoga. Weight is a huge part of the depression. The "cure" makes me fat. Vicious cycle anyone?
