If there was ever a day, today would be it.....

#1
So I think I have had it.....I woke this morning to a weight gain which I know is from this med. I have fought weight my entire life so this adds to my depression and overall mood. my autoimmune disease has swollen my joints to the point of being quite uncomfortable. I have thousands of dollars worth of dental work that needs to be done and I am wondering if it is worth it to do it. I have hurt people and I simply cannot forgive myself.
If someone offered me a quick way out with a promise of not going to hell, I would take it....my family would get over my passing and would move on. Granted, all my hopes and dreams of a wonderful retirement with y husband would be shattered but perhaps they were never meant to be. So much for working 40 plus years of your life....what a grand ‘reward’.....thanks to this great God of ours.....one that I worshiped for years...who I did numerous good deeds for.....
end of rant...., and

Sorry that this is happening.

Is it better just to listen, or to try to propose solutions?

I hope some better things will come your way soon

Not sure there are true solutions....all I know is that yesterday was the total opposite of today. I was productive, relatively happy, went shopping, etc. Today if not for the things I have mentioned a hundred times....my love of my family and my fear of death/hell, I would be gone. My family would be destroyed...I will not do that to them yet I cannot see myself remaining like this much longer. I have an appt with my shrink on Tuesday....something is really, really wrong.

I plug acupuncture here so often, I lose track of who I've plugged it to. In any case, it works well for treating joint pain. There's some more information about acupuncture in the link in my signature.

It sounds like the rapid mood cycling that you've gone through is a huge factor. Hopefully you'll be able to get a diagnosis for that, and maybe treatment.

Does your prescriber know that weight gain is an intolerable side effect for you?
There might be some other drug that would work better.

I hope God will show you some loving kindness soon.
