i've been taking lithium for about a year - i'm bipolar. i had been on antidepressants, other mood stabilizers, and many different antipsychotics and they didn't help in the long term or made things worse. i still get depressed or manic sometimes, but it is mostly manageable

Anonymous 19022

>Do you take any? Which ones?
nope not rn but used to take seroquel and prozac
>When did you start?
prozac awhile ago as a kid, seroquel more recently
>Are you diagnosed with anything?
no and if i am the cuntfucks didnt tell me
>Which ones have you tried? Did they work?
wanna be numb then sure. i'm not even fucking psychotic they just wanted me to shut up and the ssris were after i tried to kill myself as a kid because of people being shitty to me and prescribed under 5 minutes by this stupid bitch. no "informed" consent, get gaslit about withdrawals/side effects. i fucking hate shrinks so much. many get away with prescribing dumb shit because IME they dont see you again .

>Do you take any? Which ones?
I take Invega and Pristiq.
>When did you start?
I started taking medicine when I was 14, started with Abilify and Prozac.
>Are you diagnosed with anything?
Schizoaffective, OCD and GAD. Even ADHD and BPD at one point.
>Which ones have you tried? Did they work?
I've tried Abilify, and it honestly helped a lot minimizing the voices and the delusions. Ativan works for me very well for anxiety. Haldol knocks me out. Prozac worked okay in low doses, but in high doses caused me to have suicidal thoughts. Wellbutrin sucks. I honestly didn't notice much of a difference with Vyvanse, other than I didn't eat very much and lost a lot of weight. (wish i could go back on it for that reason, kek) Medicines in general just suck, they make you gain weight and shit. I'm on a good regimine now, but God it took forever to get on the right one. I've taken SO much medicine throughout the years.

Anonymous 19375


>Do you take any? Which ones?
Citalopram, Buspirone, Effexor, Adderall, Prozac
>When did you start?
between the ages of 14 to 16 for Citalopram and Buspar, 18 to 20? for Effexor, 22 to 29 with Adderall, 28? to now with Prozac
>Are you diagnosed with anything?
Bulimia, GAD, OCD
>Which ones have you tried? Did they work?
Citalopram, I was too young to appreciate whatever I was feeling. Buspirone gave me "brain shocks". Effexor was good but expensive and I had to stop taking it cold turkey when I lost my parents' insurance. Adderall was great but I became hopelessly addicted to it so I stopped taking it. Prozac has been great, no complaints. I'm on the lowest dose, I may need to up it soon, but it helps a lot.

Anonymous 19455

>Do you take any? Which ones?
Lithium carbonate, quetiapine, and two others for anxiety and depression symptoms.
>When did you start?
I've started taking medication when I was 15, but these… Only this year.
>Are you diagnosed with anything?
BPD with comorbidities, recurring depression. Testing for autism right now.
>Which ones have you tried? Did they work?
I've went through a lot of medication throughout my life; my body "gets used to them" and they stop having their effect on me. It gets pretty annoying. But I'm thankful mine are working pretty well up until now.

I guess the only bad thing to notice, in my experience of course, is my really bad memory. I don't really know if there is anything related with all the medication I've taken (and the suicide attempts with it) but I feel like it might be the meds. It definetely fried my brain! :B

I'm about to answer op and im probably going to be dogged on for my answer
I underwent a total simple mastectomy for both of my breast about three years ago.

>How has having small breasts affected your body image and confidence?

All that really changed in my life is not wearing bras anymore, not even sports bras.

>Do you believe breast augmentation is alright?

My surgery was in effort to prevent a future of issues with my lymph nodes and possible necrosis in my breast tissue due to an abnormality. Doctors haven't said what the abnormality is, but it summed up to "Your breast will actually calcify and act like an invader" which yknow, can be an issue down the line. So they chopped them both off.
From a medical standpoint, breast augmentation is fine, preferable even when your tits will cause problems later down the line.
But plastic surgery is retarded.

>Do you prefer going braless?

Literally don't need a bra ever.

>Do you care about having cleavage or not?

what size were you before? what was healing like? did they remove the lymph nodes completely - and if so do you get sick more/have less immunity ?

Anonymous 19363


A little bit over a 4” difference for a D cup, so sorta a d-cup. 30D is the last pair i bought a couple years back, and i might have it sitting somewhere in a drawer.

For the healing process, this was a time where I was practically living in the hospital. I had lung surgery frequently, and so recovery was long and extended. Only until 2021 have I really been in full recovery since my lung transplant.
But recovery and healing from the mastectomy almost went unnoticed in comparison to much worse medical issues.
For the immunity part, with a total simple mastectomy they simply remove breast tissue and the surrounding outside skin, making sure to leave the lymph nodes intact. If i remember right, they didn’t remove either of the nodes.

In my very unprofessional opinion, they simply removed my breast out of frustration with dealing with them for my surgeries, but the medical anomaly could have been fully real. But to me, they simply chopped me however they liked under the knife.

I don't think there has been a thread for those who might have some form of disability here. This thread is for discussing any problem related to a disability, it can be a mental or physical problem as long as this thread can help you feel less alone in this struggle it is all that matters. I personally have issues related to my hearing, I am curious to see if other anons do too here.

I've got my fair share of meds. What I hate the most is that I have to take them with a pretty substational (not necessarily calorie wise but size wise) meal otherwise I'm gagging on acid all day. Anyone know of low acid, high satiety foods to take with them instead? Thinking about almond milk yogurt but that shit is nasty

I'm back with an update! I've started working out according to Pam's beginner routine in her app. I don't know how effective these workouts will be, as they are short and rather low intensity. The plans in her app also don't include warmups and cooldowns, so I manually add little 5 minute ones before and after. If you would, could you maybe check them out and tell me whether they're a good place for me to start with?
I've only been doing them for 3-4 weeks, but I'm honestly looking forward to these workouts! When I'm doing them, I sometimes can't fully keep up and that makes me feel a little bad, but I believe it will get easier and so I keep going.
Sorry I went on a little tangent with this, I just can't wait to finally feel myself getting stronger!

What's the best time during the day to workout? I usually do it in the morning, but today I did it in the afternoon and I feel different - better, I think? But I see all the fit girlies working out first thing in the morning, and some sources I read said it's best in the morning for burning fat. Does it actually matter?

Anonymous 19428

The best time to work out is the time you'll do it. If you're not a morning person, and you keep missing your morning workouts, then any advantage to working out in the morning is negated.
Sleep is important too though. If it disrupts your sleep later, then it's not a good time either.

weight gain Anonymous 19283[Reply]

i suffer from being too skinny and being really flat. it's always been my main issue in life and it is due to genetics so I know theres not much I can do but for a while now I've been exploring ways to gain weight. yet as someone who struggles to eat one full meal a day I simply cannot find the appetite. along with having 0 gym experience it's extremly difficult. on top of that i'm actually a bit afraid to gain weight because I already have a fat face. any tips to gain weight in the right places? i would do anything to have a better body

I'm not a titcow tier maybe not big enough to post idk.
>Do you like having big breasts?
Yes and no. I think big breasts contributed to my scoliosis, back pain, and asymmetrical body but it's not as bad as it sounds as they are not massive like some anons ITT. I also look stupid because of how top heavy I am because of my breasts, I would honestly look much better flat. I also am not looking forward to dealing with sagging tits in the future. However, I also like squishing and playing with my boobs because they are fun and soft, boobs can be fun to have so I have come to like them now.
>Would your change your breast size? Have you ever considered surgery?
Now no, but I used to when I was a young teenager for a short period of time.
>How has it affected you growing up? Any bad experiences with moids? Any nastiness from other girls?
From when I was 11-17 years old I would wear sports bras almost exclusively so they were flatter and wouldn't move freely like with a regular bra. I also wore oversized shirts and sweaters, or jackets to further obfuscate them and I was a hunchback too. I have been stared at before. There was one time when I was 13 I was felt up by a little kid as he shouted "MELONS!" when he groped me and whenever I remember that I laugh because it was so random it was silly to me be but he definitely needed to be wrangled by his mother to prevent future pervy antics.
>Has anyone ever made assumptions about your personality/character/libido because of your breasts?
I don't think so?
>Do you consider any types of clothing a no-no because of your breasts?
I don't know what fashion style it's called but I think some skirts and dresses with straps and suspenders, like high waist suspender skirts I can't wear I've tried one of those before and my boobs wouldn't let me. I also hate wearing tight long dresses because I hate the body shape it accentuates as my boobs makes me look fat.
>Any favourite bra brands or types?
I like Asian brands. Idk what type they are or called but they're all the same for the most part. I've worn a few western brands before but I really didn't like them because they weren't comfortable for me but Asian bras are more comfortable for me, fit my breast shape well, and provide more support for them andPost too long.

Overall, yeah. I personally like the way they look in form fitting clothing. I can't go braless though
>Would you change your breast size?
No and no
>How has it affected you growing up?
I've always worn baggier clothing up until hs and my breasts aren't big enough to be noticed in baggier clothing so no harassment from moids or jealousy from girls
>Clothes that are no-no for me
I'm at a healthy bmi with a larger bust; generally speaking, a lot of women's tops fit too tight around my breasts
>Any favourite bra brands or types
This is an unpopular opinion for some, but I actually like Victoria's Secret bras
>Any perceived advantages?
If I wanted to, it's easy to get attention from men. My bf likes them. I also like how they look in a bikini

>dad called me a whore at 15 for wearing a tanktop
I had a similar experience when I was going through puberty. I was slutshamed into putting a shirt on at a water park by my grown ass dusty brother. These are the same men that don't wash their ass

Anonymous 19028

>Do I like them
I do, I think my body is nicely proportioned.

>Bad experiences

I hit puberty kind of early and once my boobs got bigger I wore a bright purple hoodie every single day for a year while I was at school because I felt like everybody was looking at me. I even had an older female teacher point out my hoodie one day and I never knew why she would do that.

I owned few bras growing up and wore bras I grew out of for way too long because anytime my mother brought me clothes shopping I was too shy to say I needed bras, and I felt bad at how expensive they were. It never even penetrated her brain that I had outgrown the need for a training bra and needed to be taken to the store until I spoke up because the training bras stopped fitting.

The girls never minded me but I was standoffish and didn't engage in much drama. I always thought my sister was jealous but I didn't give a shit if she was.

Some boys of certain persuasions would try to ask me out because of my boobs but I always turned them down in an absolute manner and they never bothered me more than once. As an adult people don't bother me about them. I just don't wear low cut tops out unless it's really hot. I know men will look and if their mush brains perceive me as inviting it by wearing certain clothes then they'd be more likely to cause trouble. Unfortunate but that certainly won't change.

>Would I change my boobs

I never thought about getting them reduced. Back pain is assuaged by posture and keeping fit. As for augmentation, no. I'm personally against body mods and especially fillers. It's best to accept what you have and work with it. (I know some people have extreme circumstances, they can do what they want to themselves.)

eyebags Anonymous 19349[Reply]

how do you get rid of these?
I've had them for half of my life and barely even notice them. But sometimes when I do I get aware of how creepy I look. My eyebags are basically the biggest ones I've ever seen and even pics on the web don't come close. They are wide and blue with some blue veins being visible on the left and some red veins on the right. It's not actually a bag in that it hangs or is fatty, it's just the color.

Self help sites recommend sleep and low stress but I've had both for at least two years now and it didn't change a bit. Any recommendations please?

eating disorder thread - its time for another

do you have an eating disorder?
which one?

how long have you had it?
what caused it?
how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?

i have a purging disorder.
i kind of want to attempt recovery sometimes, then i see something like my crush looking happier talking to another girl thats skinnier than me, i think about how much better i could look/how i could compensate for my stupid ugly fact, and i think about the comments my dad gives me when i 'eat bad' even though im 19 bmi/skinnier than him (hes overweight, i think.) ive had mine since i was 13. i was a fat child growing up because my parents didnt know how to feed me, and instead of giving me healthy food they just called me fat/made fun of me. it disrupts my daily life heavily because i cant eat anything without purging after, and it just ruins my mood and has disrupted my health. ill be devastated if i go up 0.1 a pound
