You must be posh, I have to clean my own🤣

 

Ha ha, I don't usually clean it or have it cleaned full stop.  Thought I'd treat myself, definitely not posh 😂

He opened it, read in full and admitted he was not aware.

 

That's great, hopefully his awareness could potentially save somebody else from ending up in AD withdrawal hell.  Hopefully he'll alert his colleagues. 

 

When I told the GP (a different one to who I see now) I wanted to come off citalopram, he advised me to take one 10mg tablet every couple of days for a few weeks and then stop!  He didn't renew my prescription as the expectation was I would be off them within a month.  I'm going to send him a letter and enclose the Royal Psych info.

How are you today?

 

 

I've had a good day, went out for lunch and got my hair sorted out, and cleaned the house from top to bottom.  Think a chill out day is in order tomorrow...

 

No dread waves today 👍

Hi Sass 

 

I've had a chill, sort of, if you discount the food shopping and odd jobs here and there.

 

Weather is rubbish here as well...but next week is forecast ☀️🌞☀️.

 

Here are my notes...

I've bought some magnesium tablets and omega 3 tablets.  Should I start taking one tonight with my dinner?  

 

Adios from 🌧 Manchester

Start out with just one (whichever you choose) at a low dose and see how it goes.  If all goes well, after a few days you can start taking the other.

Hi Wend

 

Notes look good exercising and tiring yourself naturally.

My only slight concern are the headaches.

Are you prone to them or is this only happening recently?

As for the supplements, Gridley got me through the first few weeks on here and since, go with his advice.

Have a great evening.

Thank you, I will try magnesium, just a small dose.

I do get headaches now and again.  At least one migraine a month.  Hmmm, I'll keep an eye on them.  Hopefully they'll settle.

 

Have a lovely evening, 

 

Wend

It actually went ok!  Better than expected.  There is a lot of work to be done, but I took it all in my stride.  And it was nice to see everybody again.

 

Tired now though.

Tonight - not noticed any worrying withdrawals yet...🤞

 

Do I need to post notes still?  I'm still keeping them but I'm not particularly concerned about anything at the moment.

 

Have a good evening 🙂

Hi Wend

 

It's great that you enjoyed work.

You had me kind of worried last week.

What a difference a few days make.

Was today ok?

Re. diaries. I would be grateful if you would. They are like insurance, if you got it you will never need it.

However equally important, another doctor will put someone else in the same position, your thread will show it can be done.

Not everyone will be as strong and determined as you but proof of success always helps.

Besides gives me time to think of some smarta**e comment before you wave goodbye, at least for now😢
