Saxenda and side effects of depression?

Good article, @johnbishop and another great excuse for eating dark chocolate, which I love. I buy the large high-quality candy bars and recently have had a couple of dark chocolate with ginger ones. So that knocks off two of the suggestions at once! I buy the bars and then break them into the predefined squares and eat a couple, generally after breakfast, but maybe I should switch that to before dinner.

John, I, too, joined the chocolate snack since I read that it is a good antioxidant and I know that flavor is important to a diet. I eat two squares after dinner, usually, but sometimes after lunch if I only have a salad. The ones I eat have only ninety calories, low sugar, and have orange bits in them. After dinner I wash the chocolate down with a glass of milk in preparation for the sleepiness that seems to come from the milk. Then I can get to sleep easily, or I can drink camamille tea which does the job of bringing on sleepiness. Tonight is an exception because I have too much on my mind to process, and I have been awake all night. Depression is not a problem for me because I indulge in a prayer life which erases my loneliness from living alone. I recently walked away from problems which were not being addressed and now need to get it out of my head. Life is good when you engage with and help others. I seldom use food for comfort anymore, and I have lost 6 pounds from not being able to cook with a fractured shoulder injury. I'm getting better now. Dorisena
