I know there are so many
excuses for gaining weight. I thought one of mine was "so many of my medications have weight gain as a side effect." Since none of my doctors ever addressed it, I thought it was just me excuse-hunting or blame shifting.
Then, today I saw a counselor and we were talking about so many things that have been going on in my life the past few years. (Intake stuff.) And she could pull up my records and see what my prescriptions are since she's part of their system. She said she could see when and where I really started gaining weight when they started changing my medications.
Yes, my blood sugar is finally under excellent control, but I've gained about 100 pounds in the past three years or so.
So, yeah, I feel somewhat validated, but I also feel angry that this is something that is known to happen and they pretty much did nothing to address it except to suggest a gastric sleeve when I asked about help losing weight.
I'm just.... Yeah. Annoyed. Aggravated. Frustrated. Angry. Upset. All of the above.
