Unhappy Diet Pills.

Well, this is my first time trying them. It's a diet pill/multi-vitamin all-in-one and I'm not going to lie, I'm panicking a little big because I don't want any of it to interact with my meds, especially my lithium but I can't get in touch with my psychiatrist, nor do I want to tell him I'm taking diet pills at all.

It just seemed like... a good idea. Right now I'm so poor I can't afford food. Of course, that sort of starving doesn't give me the same sense of accomplishment as restricting does because I'm not the one in control. But if I gently prod the process along further, I guess that can make up for it somehow.

I thought I'd recovered but not being able to eat just makes me think of all those days I spent hungry and how I enjoyed it then and that I should take advantage of this. And it would make me feel better to see all the weight all of these stupid medications have made me gain just go away.

I've gained almost 70lbs since I started "recovering." First it was a decent 15... then 20... then somehow another 45 just crept up on me and it made me sick. All my old clothes are too small. I'd rather my new ones be baggy than too small as well.

I don't know why I'm posting. I know people are going to say "just eat healthy and exercise" but when you literally can't afford to eat, how do you eat healthy? The most I can afford are $2 bags of chips which immediately make me feel guilty for eating anyway.

This sucks.

I agree with JT here too, if you're taking any kind of medication it usually says on the diet pills info that you should consult your doctor before taking them because it could conflict with anything, even minor pain killers you never know. It's always best to check because they could produce bad side effects or even be ineffective.

I can't tell a doctor. That would open up a whole new can of worms I don't want to deal with right now. Besides, that involves even being able to see a doctor.

I thought I said this already in my original post.

Sorry I missed that
Don't you see a dr for the lithium?
May not be a primary MD but you could still ask

I see one occasionally. He prescribes it and sends me on my way. No one answers the phones at his office but there's no one else in this city to see so I just have to keep calling until someone competent gets me in for an appointment. He's not a primary MD either.

Ever heard of a trade off? If I can't eat anyway, at least I can just suppress my appetite and lose weight doing it. Welcome to adulthood, it's great.
