  • You can't stop your meds! My son has bipolar disorder and is 6'2" and weighs 135 and is lookiing for ways to put on weight. His meds do not make him weigh too much!

    Since you are having pain you need to see a health care provider. If you don't have insurance and if money is a problem you can go to Planned Parenthood or a clinic that charges on a sliding fee scale.

    Ask the person you see about your bipolar meds about your weight issues. Don't ever stop taking your meds. It's better to be overweight than to be hospitalized, arrested, commit suicide, kill your child, or some of the other horrible things people with bipolar disorder do when they quit takiing their meds.

  • Im sure you love your husband very much, but he should be supporting you and helping you, not putting you down like that (not touching you, not looking at you).

    Now, im not trying to scare you, but my mom went to the OB/GYN because of horrible periods and they could be months between. Turns out, she has a tumor (not cancerous) in her uterus that is the size about her being 5 months pregnant. She's had three c-sections out of 4 kids.
