Hi, I have suffered with schizophrenia for nearly forty years and in my early days rebelled against the medication a lot as I felt it dulled me down and I had weight issues, but know they would rush me into hospital if I made the decision to come off my depot so basically its a "no choice" situation frankly.
In my twenties and up until my mid thirties I was a size 12 to an occasional 14, sometimes a 10 even, then with constant use of medication I ballooned to a 16 and a now 18 and I weigh 16 3/4 stone!!! It is depressing, I know its the medication and also feel that it is shutting off "the real me", any advice? no platitudes please.
