Are you living with psychosis? What do you think about this?
I’m not sure if the “helps prevent psychosis but may make you fat” isn’t a little insensitive, given that many folks on antipsychotics are struggling as a consequence with obesity, diabetes, dyslipidemia and hypertension (and this is a strong contributory factor to the sad reality that, on average, people with ‘Severe Mental Illness’ have a life expectancy 25 years shorter than the general population).
