Would you rather be overweight and happy or skinny and depressed?

I take meds for depression/mood disorder and I am at the end of my rope. I've had to stop meds that were helping b/c of bad side effects, like a racing heart for example. I am in such a funk right now that I'm barely functioning. One med that really helped me in the past also made me gain 20 lbs. I am debating going back on it so I can be happy and function again. What would you do?

Overweight and happy, hands down.

I hope you get some relief soon.

Neither. I couldn't be happy if I were overweight.

Skinny and depressed. However, I have anorexia and have for many, many years, so, there's that.

My rational brain says though, if you need the meds, you need them - I'd choose something to help me.

In your case, overweight and able to function.  I'm sorry that you're struggling.  I hope you find something that works for you.

This is easy for me. Overweight and happy. 

I'm sorry that you're having issues. I would do whatever I needed to do to get better.

Have you run out of medication options? Try something different. No fun being skinny if you can't live a life.
