I just got back from the therapist and am feeling awful. I have recently started taking remeron for depression and unfortunately it made me gain twenty pounds, so I went from 125 lbs. to 145lbs. I feel like garbage, because I gained the weight and was telling her that I felt bad that I was no longer attractive. She said that I wasn't unattractive, but I would have to get used to being average. She said I'm not repulsive, but there is nothing spectacular about me and that it would benefit me to like myself the way I am. She then said it is okay if men don't turn and look at me anymore, because I'm getting older and that's what happens when you get older. When I was leaving she said, "Get your average self out there and love it." I was feeling bad to begin with and now I really feel like crap. Do you thing my therapist was being insensitive or am I just overreacting , because I want to look the way used to. Any comments?
