Depression, Eating Disorders, Medication and Pregnancy

Since I found out that I am pregnant, I have been doing a lot of research on the medication I take on a daily basis, and it’s possible side effects on my pregnancy. To be fair, there’s not a lot of information out there. A lot of drugs are simply not studied much, or even …

Changing my Medication

I have some really big news! I had an appointment with my psychiatrist last week, and we talked about something that is both good and really scary. I’ve been doing so much better over the last few months, but there is an issue that has been bothering me since I did some research early on. …

One Month on Dexedrine

Although I’m not doing them as frequently, I did still want to make an update here and there to these medication posts. I started with Prozac and I have been increasing my dose a bit more every couple of weeks. As I mentioned in my previous post, my eating habits are now officially under my control, …

Week 1 on Prozac

Day 1. Honestly, I was so down I took my pill early in the evening, as soon as my prescription was filled. Probably around 5pm. I can’t say I noticed much of a difference, but I did shower and wash my face, which I may not have done because when I’m depressed I often wait …

I Have an Eating Disorder

I said it. I am addicted to food. Which sucks because I also want to lose weight. This is not exactly a secret, but also not something that I have shared with anyone. I try to be “good” and I set limits for myself, but it seems as though my self-control only lasts for half a …
