Went back on the anti-depressants 20mg citalopram. I was getting murderous depressed.
I just feel after coming back from trip to London I have been MUCH worse physically than when I went.
A few people have commented on that.
I am so TIRED. I have been doing alot of late.
Now I am floored with even simple things.
Went for a walk this morning pre 8am. the sun was up and it really hurt. I strolled for a short while by the sea but I really was with the birds, I felt so 'off'
Came home and tried to go through the manual for the new camera. I really didnt know what I was doing as I couldnt concentrate and felt, 'sleeeeep....sleeep.....sleeep..." My eyes felt so tired, and they hurt, reading seemed too difficult.
I also felt really sick, nauseous and diarrea bad.
I went to bed at 1am and have got up just now at 7.30pm.
All day my head was buzzing, something I find very disturbing but also more noticable when I am tired.
I so much want to get to grips with the camera.
A guy came over yesterday to give me a tutorial on it, but he just went over it for himself and I lost interested as I was hellish agitated and tired.
Something in me just said, 'ah I dont care a s...'
I know apathy and malaise goes with Parkinsons, but I really am 'very out of it at present' I dont understand it and I dont like it.

Hi Ann, I'm sorry you are having such a rough time. Maybe just beginning this anti -D is giving you problems? I think most of us do have problems with depression. Let's face it being sick is no picnic. Trying to find answers to seemingly unanswerable questions. Some times feel so all alone. and yes some times the I just don't give a ****. Your symptoms sound like they could be either one or both problems. I just posted a reply before this about the not being able to concentrate. I hate it! I think you need to give yourself a break. Snuggel up with your puppy and try the camera when your mind is a little clearer.
I hope you feel better soon
God Bless

Hi, Ann

You sound a lot like me, before I found out that I was sick. I still have to watch myself from over doing.

I hope you are doing better.
Enjoy what you can today and leave the rest for another day.
