I have really had issues with weight gain due to my medications. I typically stop taking my meds because of the weight gain. For awhile I will actually be losing weight and thinking, "this is great, I'm going to get back to my old weight", then before I know it I am deeply depressed. At that point, I am so down that I don't care what I look like and my psychiatrist urges me to start up the medication again....so I start it again, gain the weight back and then my mood is fine, but I'm fat. So I am constantly dealing with the same old conundrum, would I rather be fat or suicidal?

i made this account because i hope this reaches someone who can understand. I feel immense shame and guilt over my past behavior while manic. I have ruined relationships with friends and family members, gotten tattoos that i dont want, done things that make me cringe. The weight of the self hatred gets to be too much sometimes. I feel like a burden. Nobody understands. I hate myself today.
