Medicating my bipolar disorder was the best thing I've ever done
Medicating my bipolar disorder was the best thing I've ever done - and it has also wrecked my body. I gained over 100 lbs in the course of 1.5 years, and haven't been able to get it off despite changing medications, dieting, and exercising. The worst part is that doctors and everyone look at me like "if you just dieted, exercised, did yoga...you'd feel better". They look at me like it's all my fault and I'm just lazy. I'd feel better if they just treated me like a human being and saw past my weight to someone who is doing their best and just wants to feel better.
