I'd be upset too though you are right, it's hard to tell what exactly they mean.

I hate when I visit my parents and my father says things like you look like you've been eating good. Translation to me: You look fat. I know he means basically that I look healthy, but I always think fat.

This morning, I ran a lot. So much I felt sick afterward. Not sure if it's medication related or running so far on an empty stomach. I know I am not supposed to overexercise on Seroquel though I don't know if that's just because you are not supposed to let yourself get too hot while taking it or another issue entirely. I ate as soon as I got in and then had to lie down awhile. Luckily managed to get up in time to take my daughter to the dentist, but we had a rushed lunch (noon appointment). 2 cavities together on neighboring teeth so back in January to fill.

I ordered a small pizza tonight and had 2 pieces and feel stuffed. Used to be able to down the whole thing. I guess my stomach has shrunk since I've been eating less. That's a good thing for me though. I need to lose more weight. I am obese.

I hate the term "psychotic" It just has such a negative connotation. So does anything with Schiz in it. My dx is Schizoaffective bipolar. It's great how people are so much more open about depression and anxiety nowadays but there's still a looooong way to go.

Anyway, in regard to the eating disorder, I'm doing pretty good. I have been cooking more and am able to keep away from restricting or bingeing. I see the nutritionist my psychiatrist referred me to next week. That should be interesting.
I don't like the term psychotic either. Society has made it seem evil when it's not at all. I have had psychotic symptoms, too, and lately because the antidepressent I am taking isn't working and my depression symptoms are out of wack.

Doesn't help it's the anniversary of my sister's death either. I was thinking a lot about her and crying, missing her so...Here is a pic of her:

She was beautiful, I'm sorry for your loss and that you're struggling

I was having a rough day yesterday and crying too because holidays aren't the same since my mom died. The 3rd anniversary of her death is coming up in January.

Losing one's mother is so very hard; I'm so sorry. Mine is gone, too. The holidays can suck sometimes. All of my family has left the state now and I'm getting a meal delivered from a church for shut ins for Christmas. Me and my baby dog will share it. Thankfully I have her. Much peace to you this season.

I am so sorry you about your loss. How long has it been?

I'm so sorry about your depression. Will you be able to contact your pdoc or can't until January? As soon as you can call your pdoc, the better. You have sounded really depressed for a long time. Which antidepressant are you on? Possibly you could try another? I'm sorry about the psychotic symptoms. I have had it happen a couple times, and it is scary.

I hope you make it through this tough anniversary and time of year

Blue_Bird, I don't like the term "psychotic" either. I am on an anti-psychotic (AP) though and it has helped reel in my manic thoughts & actions. Usually they up it if I get more manic, but more than the dose I'm on, I am so sleepy. My AP (Seroquel) is known for weight gain, but did not affect me that way, probably because I run nearly every day. But I have to take the normal release version. I tried extended release and wanted to sleep & eat all day, though it was not as bad as Remeron for excessive eating.

I guess for myself, I'm coping. Lots of changes coming up with H's new job, and that will affect medical insurance, dental, vision insurance as of Jan. 1, I believe. I have a pdoc appt. Jan. 3, and I might have to ask for a meds extension and come in once the insurance gets sorted.

I'm eating OK, though I did skip breakfast again, not on purpose, ran out of time. I make my daughter's breakfast a morning priority but not my own breakfast. For me, I tend to make running the priority. Doing it a lot, and I know I need to eat more, but I like to fit into smaller clothes, see a lower weight on the scale, and God, you cannot buy a women's magazine without something about weight loss in it, and then that will make me feel like I need to be on a diet too.
