I am on a heavy regimen of psych meds. I have to be. I am morbidly obese.
I am now logging my calories and am losing weight slowly, so I feel as though my day will get here.
What is this day I speak of?
It is the day that I can reduce the strength of my medication.
I know that psych meds do more than keep us out of the hospital. They can even exacerbate our conditions!
I am sure this happens a lot more frequently then it should, but without side effects, our meds wouldn’t be our meds.
And, I wouldn’t feel so terrible day in and day out!
This is why I am focusing on tracking my calories and am even working with a Dietician.
