So. . . . .
Today I went out shopping with my mum and sister. My sister is getting married and she needed to look for shoes.
Its the first time I have been out since starting my new medication. The first time being in crowds of people. People! I did have a little panic at one stage, but it was a lovely day with them.
From a medication side effect point of view, I’m doing a lot better and don’t feel as o u t o f i t.
But another side effect has reared its ugly head. W e i g h t G a i n.
And I meeeean weight gain. Weight. Gain. Holy crap. And its happened fast.
So is it a choice between a healthy mind OR a health body for people with mental health problems and are medicated?
After trying on clothes in a store for ‘the larger lady’ and them n o t fitting, it really does put me off taking medication, which is not the idea!
So what to do?
I think as I start to feel better, I really am going to have to start exercising. There’s no escaping it.
Eat less, move more.
Pffft. . . easy to say. But I will need to do something. As my weight goes up, the more I feel down.
For goodness sake!
Hope you are all well,
