Zinniagirl - the reason I freaked about the dry mouth was because ages ago I tried oxybutynin as I was visiting the bathroom too much (at worst 6 times in 30 mins). It made my mouth so dry that even plain water was like trying to swallow ashes , my nose and eyes dried up too , I couldn't cope with it and had to give it up. Citalopram is nothing like that. I have been meaning to ask the doc about trying a different med but with all that's been happening to me I haven't quite got round to it yet - it's on my to do list So for now I will content myself by melting my teeth with the tootsie roll pops my OH brought back from York.
Pete Tong is a DJ in UK , and we use his name as rhyming slang for "wrong" - It's all gone Pete Tong - It's all gone wrong.
Warren , my friend - a handsome , witty , intelligent toad , no doubt I have no reason to hide my vunerability - I used to , as I thought being vunerable was the same as being weak , not good enough , but I know better now. I don't want people to look at my name and think "moderator" , I want people to see that I am human , that I experience life , and that I understand what they are going through - not some high almighty that dishes advise out of a book , without comprehension of how that person actually feels. I want to share my experience with others in the hope that I have given them some insight which could help them.
Well , day 7 , I think? (could someone pass me my brain please?) Have had to take loperamide again , just the once since last time though , so that's pretty good as far as I'm concerned. The headache is still there , but so are the pain meds if I need them - so no problem there either. I can truely say I'm not depressed , and I still haven't cried (a whole week , I can't remember a week where I haven't cried , ever.) , I have too much energy , while writing this I have kept getting up to move around even though this chair has a rocking and swiveling facility , I just can't keep still , but I am happy not irritable. Hyperactive? Hypomania? Or is this how normal people feel? Maybe I was lacking in energy before so don't know how to deal with a normal amount? How should I know. All I do know is that without the meds I still get this anyway. I got a letter through saying I can now have an appointment with the mental health nurse so I hope I am like this when I see him as my doc hasn't seen me like this either.
Work has been great , I'm so glad to be back. I'm glad spring is on it's way and the days are getting longer , and warmer too. I can get back in the garden - I love gardening , and eating home grown fruit and veg , and , even when I'm too downtrodden to do anything , just sitting and looking at the flowers and wildlife , with the sun warming me , it gives me back my vibrancy , it feeds my soul.
Thankyou again for all your support ,
Take care everyone , keep smiling - it's contagious ,
Let's see how far round the world we can spread our smiles.
DX : I'm me , suprisingly I've only just realised this.
