Welcome to the HealingWell depression forum. It is great that you have joined us.
In life things happen that we really can't control. Like your mom with her ankle and her wrist. It scares us because things are different. But don't be afraid, just take it one day at a time. I was on effexor for a long time. I also took abilify with it and it worked very good. I hope that the increase helps you.
Things are going to be different now. And that are probably going to be a little scarey, but you are going to really feel good about yourself. And try to get use to eating smaller portions. Eat slowly. You are going to fill up quicker. If you have the desire to eat, try to find something else to do. Make sure that you are getting proper nutrition though. I am sure a dietician has gone over it with you. If not, then maybe you should talk to your doctor about that. You are going to eat a lot less than you did. Try to stay active too. Maybe do some muscle toning to help you as you lose the weight. But talk to the doctor about that first. You are probably going to want to start walking and doing more as you lose the weight. Be patient. Things are going to work out.
