Tell me about it. I got diagnosed for Bipolar when I was 26. I weighed 126 lbs. back then.
And now I have gained alot of weight. Some of it is the pills some of it is life style habits.
Still wishing it would fall off, but I know it won't. I really hate to exercise. The only thing I like is walks.
Just to let you know, keep on eye on your weight, you don't want to be like me in your forties with a ton to lose.
It causes so many other health problems too. If you like exercise and you are a motivated person. Do yourself a
favour and try to keep it from piling on. I know I never listened when people warned me and now I am almost 50 and
it is harder than ever to lose. Vicious circle. Anyways the best of luck, I know it's not easy to control.
All the best,
Bipolar/borderline personality disorder (don't quite understand that, the BPD)
On Haldol, clonazepam, benzotropine, valproic acid.
High Blood pressure (recent May 2009)
Other health issues too.
