Am I addicted?
Hi, please could you perhaps help me, I'm stuck in a catch 22 situation, of my own doing.. For various reasons I doubled my body weight, which obviously looked repulsive. I got to a point that i knew if i didn't do something there was no coming back from it.
Anyway i eventually got help from one of my doctors and he's given me a script for a diet pill. I've been on it for about a year and a half and lost 30 kg but I've still got another 40 to go. .. Recently It was found that i have type b wolff-parkinson-white syndrome and my other gp says i cannot continue with the pill or i could drop...i don't know what to do because i can't stop because I can't go back to being fat.
The past week I've been having chest pains more then normal and dizzy, apart of me is scared but I still take a pill in the morning, i cannot tell my gp about my chest pains because then he'll ask me about the diet pill.
I feel so stupid it seems like a no brainer, but i cannot go back to being fat. I've recently started seeing a physiologist because I was battling with life and needed help, anxiety and depression, but I'm even to scared to tell him because he might bypass me and cut off my supply, I don't abuse it i only take one a day, please could you help me with some advice? I haven't even told my husband what the gp said in case he stops me, is this considered addiction.
