I was put on olanzapine after suffering from postnatal phycosis, I gained 4 stone in a year and a half- even though my diet hadn't changed.
I've been off the medication for 8 months and I can't lose any weight. My weight gain is still insane.
I eat children's portions everyday, I do the fasting diet (5:2) I also take slimming pills. I'm doing EVERYTHING. I've been a UK size 10 my whole life so being obese is not something i'm use to.
It's making me feel so depressed and worthless, i've stopped seeing friends/ i've had people fat shame me, like i'm eating donuts all day. I've got stretch marks all over my arms, it looks like lizard skin, so I know I'll have to give away all my clothes that are short sleeve/ expensive dresses.
I feel like this medication was great short term, but it has now caused me weight problems which i'm worried i'll suffer for the rest of my life. I am so depressed I'm thinking of getting counselling over this medication - which is ridiculous as medication is meant to help your mentality.
