Hello! Here I am.
I've gained 100 pounds since my doc. added Abilify in 2006. For a while I tried so hard and was able to maintain my weight, but not lose. I let myself go for far too long. I've been off of the drug since 2012. I don't blame Abilify for all of the weight troubles, but it was definitely a contributor. I'm moving on. NOW! :)
I've studied psychology, attending college on and off for a few years in the past. I'm happily married, we don't have kids, but plan on adopting someday. I am pro-life.
I developed Bulimia at sixteen, and have struggled with my weight since childhood. I was so blessed to find Recovery at 22.
I am a Christian, God is my rock, and I need to take care of the Temple of Christ, my body :)
I have been tested for Diabetes twice and both times negative. I hope to be the exception in my family. So, it's a race against the clock as my weight has been at a constant high for years now. This is the largest I have ever been thanks to my sedentary lifestyle, and now meds. I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder at age 18 in 2004.
I am dealing with compulsive gambling... ***Update 12/2014---I recovered from gambling addiction at the beginning of 2014! I would actually call it healing that occurred***
I love animals. My hubby and I have 2 dogs, 2 birds, and tons of salt and fresh fish :)
God bless you, and here's a toast to us all on our journey~!!!! <3
