    I will pray for you. But just a word of encouragement, I was put on similar medication and gained a lot of weight. At the time I was single, and it caused a lot of embarrassment, and I wondered if it would stop me from marrying. But God still graced me with a wife despite my weight.

    Hello @Godsangel89, I agree with @gym_class_hero, perhaps a new doctor who can at least give you a 2nd opinion, and hopefully a different medication, may be something to consider?

    edit: I posted this before I saw your last post, that you have already gotten a second opinion. The last place to turn in the medical field then is to an alternative medical practice. We have one in my hometown that is integrative. It combines regular MD's and standard medical practices with many forms of holistic and alternative medical practices in one office (to seek the best possible treatments or treatment combinations for patients, especially for those who are not responding favorably to standard meds/medical treatments alone).

    Praying for you!

    God bless you!!

    --David

    Isaiah 41
    10 Do not fear, for I am with you;
    Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
    I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
    Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

    Not at all. You are God's Princess. See what God really thinks of you:

    Pro 31:10 Who may make discovery of a woman of virtue? For her price is much higher than jewels.
    Pro 31:11 The heart of her husband has faith in her, and he will have profit in full measure.
    Pro 31:12 She does him good and not evil all the days of her life.
    Pro 31:13 She gets wool and linen, working at the business of her hands.
    Pro 31:14 She is like the trading-ships, getting food from far away.
    Pro 31:15 She gets up while it is still night, and gives meat to her family, and their food to her servant-girls.
    Pro 31:16 After looking at a field with care, she gets it for a price, planting a vine-garden with the profit of her work.
    Pro 31:17 She puts a band of strength round her, and makes her arms strong.
    Pro 31:18 She sees that her marketing is of profit to her: her light does not go out by night.
    Pro 31:19 She puts her hands to the cloth-working rod, and her fingers take the wheel.
    Pro 31:20 Her hands are stretched out to the poor; yes, she is open-handed to those who are in need.
    Pro 31:21 She has no fear of the snow for her family, for all those in her house are clothed in red.
    Pro 31:22 She makes for herself cushions of needlework; her clothing is fair linen and purple.
    Pro 31:23 Her husband is a man of note in the public place, when he takes his seat among the responsible men of the land.
    Pro 31:24 She makes linen robes and gets a price for them, and traders take her cloth bands for a price.
    Pro 31:25 Strength and self-respect are her clothing; she is facing the future with a smile.
    Pro 31:26 Her mouth is open to give out wisdom, and the law of mercy is on her tongue.
    Pro 31:27 She gives attention to the ways of her family, she does not take her food without working for it.
    Pro 31:28 Her children get up and give her honour, and her husband gives her praise, saying,
    Pro 31:29 Unnumbered women have done well, but you are better than all of them.
    Pro 31:30 Fair looks are a deceit, and a beautiful form is of no value; but a woman who has the fear of the Lord is to be praised.
    Pro 31:31 Give her credit for what her hands have made: let her be praised by her works in the public place.

    Women are to be praised, for all of their love, sacrifices, and achievements.

    You are projecting. But we really cannot discuss it here as this forum is for prayer. Continued prayer for you.

    Praying for you, as nine others are also which should encourage you that you are valued.
    So if we value and love you, just imagine how much God does.

    Years ago I heard a co-worker talking to a customer about the pressures of his job. He said that if it weren't for his antidepressants, he wouldn't be able to get by (or something to that effect). He really did have a very high pressure job. However, he was always positive and friendly. Everyone liked him. I couldn't believe what he was saying. I said, "come on ____, you on antidepressants?" I really thought that he was joking. He said that he was serious. I still couldn't believe it. He opened up his duffel bag and showed me the bottle. I was shocked. He asked me why this surprised me. I told him that it became popular among many of the parents in my neighborhood to send the children for psychiatric help for minor disciplinary problems, when I was growing up. The parents would brag to their neighbors about it. The kids were just being kids; but not after the meds. It was affecting my friends in very negative ways. I couldn't be around those friends anymore. They were doing crazy things.

    My co-worker said that he went through the same thing. He went to a doctor when he realized that he had a problem, the doctor prescribed meds. The meds had adverse effects. My co-worker asked for something else. The doctor refused. The co-worker demanded. The coworker went through every drug that doctor thought to prescribe. All had adverse effects. He got a new doctor; and went through the process again. Then he got another doctor and did it again. He said that he was determined not to give up.

    Then he gave me a valuable lesson. He told me that everyone's body chemistry is a little bit different; and that there is nothing wrong with the meds. The key is getting the right one that works with my body chemistry. He told me that I am ultimately responsible to take care of my own well being. He said don't leave it up to the doctors; that they are just there to help me. If they can't do that; move on, and be assertive that I get the results that are right for me.

    I don't have his problem; but he gave me very valuable advice should it come time that I have a major health problem.

    I pray that you can find someone who can help you better.

    Hello again Godsangel89, actually, the critters and the beasties were created before Eve or Adam .. Genesis 1:20-27. Eve was created because God knew that it was not good for Adam to be alone .. Genesis 2:18, and because the fulfillment of His command to us in Genesis 1:28 would have been somewhat problematic w/o her (w/o them both, actually ;)).

    God bless you :)

    --David

    Galatians 3
    28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
    29 And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.

    Perhaps, but consider what Peter had to say to the Lord Jesus in the passage below (as He was asking them if they, the 12 Apostles, were going to leave Him too, like many of His other disciples were busy doing at that point .. many of whom, sadly, were just hoping for another free meal :().

    John 6
    67 Jesus said to the twelve, “You do not want to go away also, do you?”
    68 Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life.
    69 We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God.”

    --David
    p.s. - consider what the Lord Jesus had to say here too:

    John 14
    6 Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

    And as the Apostle Peter also said,

    Acts of the Apostles 4
    12 “There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”
    And finally, as the Apostle Paul tells us,

    1 Timothy 2
    5 There is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
    .
