"I started Abilify and gained lots of weight, tried to stop, but became suicidal, restarted the Abilify and improved almost immediately. I am now gaining lots of weight again..."

Consider discussing your weight concerns with your pdoc and make sure that he/she fully understands just exactly how detrimental your weight gain and current self-image is to finding the "place" you want to be. I went through this in 2001 and I know it was a huge obstacle in my healing (I'm not narcissistic, but I've always been prideful of staying in decent shape). I focused on the frustration of weight gain (among other things)and lost sight of taking care of myself... it became a vicious cycle and it really threw a wrench into the entire process for me.

Perhaps there are alternatives to what you are taking now that will provide a similar function for you without the unwanted side effect? Seriously, ask your pdoc.
