How do we talk about antipsychotic weight gain in a healthy way?

#antipsychotic weight gain seems inevitable for most of us with #Schizophrenia . It’s one of the most common #SideEffects of our medications. It can be distressing and lead to multiple health issues, including diabetes ans heart failure.

But how do we talk about it in a healthy way? It seems that any time I talk about my weight gain, outside of speaking to my doctors about it, there’s a lack of support from family and friends because I sound like I’m complaining or being #fatphobic or contributing to #triggers for #DisorderedEating .

I gained 70lbs in less than a year. It’s uncomfortable. It was expensive to consistently purchase new clothing. My body is uncomfortably different.

Where can I go to for support without offending those I love?

Scrolling and Triggers

I shouldn't be scrolling through our feed. We came across several posts with overwhelmingly negative self-talk and triggered us quite badly. I'm not sure how to deal with all this and I feel bad about feeling hurt at someone's traumatic experience instead of helping them or offering encouragement. #DID #DissociativeIdentityDisorder #Guilt #triggers #Advice #Trauma

Hi I'm new here and I don't know how to start expressing how I feel. Last night was quality time with my love and we decided to watch Birdman. I couldn't sleep after the movie. While watching it I began getting #Anxiety and I realized something about the script was flooding me with different emotions. Too many emotions that I've felt in the past. The inner voice that doesn't go away was too common. It all was too much and I haven't been able to shake it off. It lingers and I know that I need to get past it.
