OK that worries me

Mr Stuff

My latest round of feeling terrible has subsided a bit, only a bit but it’s much better than it has been. But I think I my well know what caused it, and it scares the hell out of me.

A week ago I put in a request for my prescription, nothing new there, but when I saw the fax that came through 2 items were crossed out, Citalopram and Amitriptyline. I kept meaning to phone the surgery and find out why but kept being distracted by feeling so crappy. Anyway yesterday I went to order some new prescriptions and it seems that the Citalopram and Amitriptyline prescription came through OK and was fulfilled, so I’ve got them again. I have no idea why the original prescription was faxed through or why the items were crossed out but all is back to normal now.

But it does mean that I had a week of no Citalopram or Amitrip and I’m becoming convinced that withdrawal was the issues I was facing, and that’s the bit that scares me. At some point I’m going to have to come off these drugs and will face a living hell when I do. So I’m going to go and see the doc once I’m feeling up to it and discuss it with him. Maybe it’s time to start thinning out the number of meds I’m on as I’m also starting to wonder what side effects I’m getting that I don’t know about.

Hit me baby one more time

Mr Stuff

I’m just chilling out waiting for a gas man to come and service the boiler, fairly usual stuff. And I’ve just decided its time to make some tea but as soon as I stand up I get hit with the biggest wave of nausea I’ve had in a long time. I’m not kidding when I say it made me fall back into my seat and try not to move for 10 minutes.

I have no idea where it came from, as is the way with this illness, but it’s bad. There’s literally nothing I can do to get away from it or ease it quickly so I’m just going to sit here, not move and ride it out.

For the last 2 months or so I’ve been feeling really crappy, I’d say even more than usual, and I have no idea why. I’ve been a lot more grumpy, snappy and generally anti social. So if you’ve encountered that I’m sorry. So with that I’m going to sum up the last 2 months with a song.
