so sorry to see another "weight tragedy" among us. :( Been there...hated that.

Ok. recently, I've been much better(stablized, lite mood, no more mixed-state pain, yadda, yadda, yadda). don't anyone get upset at what I'm gonna write. Finally, I've been able to go to the gym once a day. What I do is, just some weight lifting (as much as I can tolerate without fainting dead away or throw up my guts). I couldn't do this while the depression was still so (what's the word...) #%$@^*&$*. ok...I don't mean to sound like I'm demanding that we all should be out there pumping iron.

I know that many of you are really just trying to stay alive, right now. keep it up. you will, one day, feel better AND be glad that you're still in the land of the living. Remember, I killed myself, but was revived in the ER, back in Dec. 1998. Up to that point, I lived out three years of agony. I'm happy to be alive, now.

If you can lift weights, it's an excellent fat-buster, toner and mood-improver. I'm beginning to recognize that this mass residing below my head is a human body! :) My diet consists mainly of fresh fruities and veggies, plus lots of water. Geez, I probably run two miles a day just to the bathroom! LOL

> My meds have basically saved my ass..I'm no longer depressed, and have very few anxiety -ridden /panic attack days...HOWEVER ..I am turning into a fatass..a huge happy blob...well err not really happy about the weight thing...that's why I am turning to Babbling friends who have had experience with this sort of thing. I have actually resorted to "Slim Fast" (Yuck) I swear everyday i wake up I have put on another pound. I"m not used to this since I have always been slim & trim (When I was depressed I hardly ate at all) Is this the trade-off? I must say I am grateful for how I feel...but if this continues, I'll surely die of a heart attack!!
