Well I’m going to ask a question anyway! Cuz I’m considerate like that.
My weight tends to fluctuate with my moods. I’m wondering if everyone experiences this?
The more extreme my mood is, the more extreme the weight change. When I’m massively manic, I’m pin skinny. I don’t have time to eat, and I definitely don’t want to eat because um HELLO, I look awesome right now, food would ruin that.
The depression is the weird one for me though. If I’m mildly depressed, I just don’t care. I eat what I want when I want and could care less. But if I’m majorly depressed, I’m back to not eating again. I already hate my body because while the depression was not so sever I gained a few pounds, and the more severe it gets the more I start to feel guilty about it. Not to mention the fact that I’m spending way too much time sleeping and you can’t eat and sleep at the same time.
How does your mood affect your eating habits? Do you get as extreme as I do? Or do your meds prevent you from having any control over your weight in the first place?
