I wasn't sure where to post this, but I think that this is the right place. When I was diagnosed with depression, and dissociation disorder, I was on very high dosage medication. I could not stop eating, I was hungry all the time. I put on 15kg. As I started to feel better, I was gradually weaned off the the meds. At the time I was taking 13 different pills a day. I am now down to just 3. Awhile ago I had a blood test for cholesterol, it was sky high, I was pretty much a walking time bomb. I was put on meds for this. With the massive cut down of my meds, I am now eating sensibly and don't feel the need to eat sweet things. My weight was starting to get me down, and I even asked my doctor for slimming pills, he refused. I have started doing a lot of work on our land, getting the weeds up, digging, and planting veg. My weight has started to come off, I feel to have more energy. Today I went to get the results of my cholesterol test, great news, it has come right down. I am still on cholesterol pills, but a lower dosage. Just thought I would share this with you.
