Things have been going very well in my world. My meds were tweaked just a bit more and it’s the perfect balance where I have full stability but also have the energy and motivation I need, and am not completely sedated out of my mind like I was for awhile.
I’m drawing much more frequently. I’m able to focus, I’ve read a few books already this month. So all in all I’m happy. My case manager is signing me up with a vocational rehab program so I can get a part time job, I feel ready for that. I’m keeping on top of checking for when the apartment I applied to get into is having an opening. It’s looking like it won’t be till after the 2019 holidays because I don’t think anybody’s gonna be moving during them, which is okay. It will be a fresh start whenever it does happen.
I’m proud to say that October will mark 6 months of eating disorder recovery. It’s been a long rocky road but it’s getting much easier over time!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
So, I haven’t updated in awhile. A lot has been going on. Some wonderful stuff and some horrible stuff. I won’t get into to details as I want to keep that stuff for my private journal but I wanted to make a post about weight gain and meds. I’m being tapered off a medication, Depakote specifically, due to the weight gain I’ve had while on it. If things go well, I won’t have to take a mood stabilizer and will just continue with my other meds. Anyway, I have a hard time eating healthy. I always have but it’s gotten much more out of control, and I think part of it is from the Depakote. I’m ravenous. I realized how bad it was getting when I started eating so much I had to start purging once in awhile because I felt physically sick from the amount of food I ate. I started fresh yesterday attempting to eat healthier, I know this is gonna be difficult but I think once I’m off this med it should be a little easier. What are your experiences with meds and weight gain?
