    I put on like 50lbs on olanzapine, I got so fat it was absolutely ridiculous. Also put on a fair amount of weight with mirtazapine, which was annoying as hell.

    However, te first time I took quetiapine I put on close to 30lbs however this time I haven't put any weight on so I know it's possible to take these drugs and not put weight one. However I have been going to the gym for 2 hours 6 days a week so the cost of not putting weight on is pretty high. If you're hungry have you tried snacking on stuff like celery and carrot sticks, I found that helps me.
    50 lbs!!!omg – I was only on citalopram for 5 months but I know if it was any longer I would have just kept piling it on! The doctors come across like weight gain is a minor side effect but thinking that we are actually gaining weight?! It must put us at risk of developing heart disease/diabetes etc..? it can’t be good really can it?!
    Glad you haven’t put any weight on the quetiapine this time – how long have you been on it though?
    And gym for 2 hours a day :/ I couldn’t possibly keep that up in my life even if I wanted to!! With nursing I’ll be working 12 hour shifts and normally if not on meds I would try and fit in running 3x a week and eat healthy which would normally maintain the weight but there is something in these tablets which just completely slows your metabolism down no matter how healthy you eat or how much exercise you do! :/ I don’t really over snack – Im very strict with my diet!

    I just emailed them and got an immediate response that I have been allocated a therapist and they're just sorting out a therapy timetable. Does it really take 4 months to get around to that?

    *grumbles*

    I don't think anyone in here would disagree that mental health needs better funding. The government will be sorry when we all go stark raving mad and spend our days chewing their ankles.
    4 months to do that seems crazy, but is good they seem to be making some progress at least? hopefully they give you an appointment soon!

    on TSR I have learnt to take nothing for granted politically my personal view is that they should fund them properly for sure, but like I said before I don't consider this an appropriate thread for a debate on this matter.

    :console: I would like to offer my sympathies, and also boast that the other week I was quoted a whopping twelve months for waiting for even an initial appointment with a psychologist. :eek: Psychiatrist's gonna try some sneakiness and get me a psychologist as my key worker instead though.
    a year? wow? that's awful! that's good though if they are gonna help you out

    haha well you managed to dig yourself out of calling me a cake quite well

    Things can shake us up quite badly every now and again, its just part of life! Hope you don't have any more like that though hun, and I am glad you are feeling better for now!

    I'll be fine though, it is nice to be able to be there for you every now and again, although I would obviously much rather you weren't feeling rubbish, but its nice being able to be there for other people too :hugs:

    Forgive them? Man, there's no way in hell I can forgive those *****. I realize how awful that makes me sound and I know kids do stupid **** but these people weren't kids they were like 17/18 at the end and still doing it. That's well within the age of criminal responsibility. I was diagnosed with avoidant personality disorder, which I'm 100% sure was caused entirely by years of bullying. I can't make friends now, I can hardly leave the house, I can't talk to people, I can't get a job, I'm an inferior human being all because of what these ***** did to me.

    If I had my way I would take each of them one by one in a room and torture them slowly and painfully. The guys at Guantanamo would think they got off easy. I would make sure that they suffer even a bit as much as I did from what they did. I realize this makes me sound like a horrible guy but it's how I feel. I'm not a Christian, I don't believe in turning the other cheek, I believe in vengeance.
    I actually wanted revenge but was too weak. It did hurt so much and took me a few years to recover and actually start my life. I was down and out and the worse thing about bullying is that no one is there to support you and pick you up. It seems your bullying was at an extreme end. What happened ?

    From the way you write you certainly seem you clever and intelligent as well as very coherent in your views. You are not inferior just lacking confidence from your ordeal.

    You do have a lot to offer. I have never heard of avoidant personality order. Somehow you need to start picking up the pieces - it will take time but you need to make a start. It took me four years and it was a very gradual process, disappointing I missed the best time of my life but life hasnt been too bad since. I realise you cannot have everything in life. Actually I also believe we all go through one very bad patch in our lifes - me and you have had ours. Lets embrace and enjoy life. All the best

    not sure what to really do anymore, my school is extremely supportive saying its my last chance, (i haven't been in sixth form for nearly 2 weeks because i'm a danger to myself) but isn't that my problem.
    I have never been in trouble in school in my life, I don't understand. I know i did something stupid but it was an accident

    I had a pair of scissors in my bag I don't know what I was going to do, I would never do anything in school but I was worried because other people go through my bag so I just admitted I had them to my head of year.


    I'm now in some complete mess with the school and my parents and can't see a way out of this.
