  3. Light exercise, good diet, no smoking or drinking for over three decades.

I wanna say 4 or 5 years?

I’m overweight definitely. Need to lose 100 pounds.

My diet is sh’it. I don’t exercise. I quit smoking cigarettes this past October. I drink Alcohol about once a week, though only 1 to 3 beers at a time. Not very much.

I’m turning 29 tomorrow.

I haven’t had any tests done recently but id say im in pretty poor physical health. Im lucky im still young.

I’m usually pretty stressed. All the time.


12 years

A little overweight

Eat once a day, go for a walk, smoke nicotine/sometimes THC


Could lose a few pounds.



been on ap’s for 27 years…love my current ap…generic prolixin…fluphenazine, 10mg twice a day…exercise, stopped smoking two and half years ago…some alcohol but only about twice a year. I am 62. in good health and weight…some heart issues but the doctors are taking care of that.

  1. Ive been on ap meds since i was a teen (about 14 years).
  2. My weight is okay. A little overweight. But i was much more overweight a few months ago.
  3. Ive been eating healthy for a few months. Go for a jog every morning. On nicotine gum. Drink once every few weeks.
  4. Im 30.
  5. My physical health is okay i think. Got a heart syndrome though. Should get fixed sooner or later with surgery.
  6. Im chill in the mornings. Get a bit stressed in the arvo most days until nightfall. Overall stress isnt too high generally. But i dont put myself in many stressful situations either.

I was on 10mg abilify and all this was how it was. Im now on 5mg for the next month and then possibly get off it or stay on 5mg when see pdoc next. See how i go anyway.

  1. Since September 2015
  2. I’m obese
  3. I mostly eat processed foods. I walk for about an hour once a week and sometimes twice a week in the summer. I don’t smoke or drink or do drugs anymore.
  4. I’m 34
  5. I have high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and a fatty liver.
  6. I’m stressed every day about multiple things that bother me.

Meds are a tricky thing. If I hadn’t been switched from generic to original zyprexa last spring I would be dead by now on account of not sleeping. My health was critical, but has been bettering since the med switch.
