Weight gain therapy

So many of us need or want to lose weight. At 79 pounds, my mom seriously needs to gain weight.

Her doctor is going to give her a drug to help her gain weight. I can't remember the name of the drug right now. But, it's one of those psycho drugs.

Anyway, it is not necessarily approved as a weight gain therapy. Rather, weight gain is a side effect, along with a host of other things such as dizziness, unsteady gait, disorientation, slurred speech.

I'm not dealing with this very well.

EDIT in response to an e-mail I got right after I posted this: Right. I know it's not my life or my health. However, I'm the one who will be responsible for picking her up off the floor in the middle of the night when she falls down, among other things.
