I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

Hope tomorrow goes OK then.  I've only just started taking medication.  I've fought on for a long time without but finally just had to give way.  Anyway, the 'happy pills' are just starting to kick in which is helping.  Only down side is I'm not sleeping as well.  Currently on a bit of a high as I've been out at a quiz night and had a good time - and alcohol!  Got to be up tomorrow as I'm doing an orienteering event locally.  Hope to build on today's efforts.

Sounds really positive LR ... well apart from the sleepy map reading tomorrow perhaps!

It's weird isn't it loads of us fight against taking the meds even though there's no prize for going med free and it could make a huge difference

I'm pretty diligent with my anti psychotics but I often 'forget' the anti d's then get really really low til I'll take them again. I wonder why the reluctance

I just started for month then didn't get an appointment sorted with my GP on time so I had a few days without.  I really went downhill at that point.  I'm now on a repeat prescription though.  I've been reluctant becuase I've always felt that it's only a temporary solution.  Anyway, can only take things one day and one step at a time.

Hic! Feeliung pissed and with "comfortably numb" by the Floyd blaring away downstairs.  Feeling this moment is poignant but not quite sure how at the moment.


Today is positive but burnt muffins took the ege off it somehow


Life needs to shape up but not sure if I need to do some kicking right now.  Confused :-/

Oh heck drunken posting.   Slightly sobered up a few minutes later and feel unsure.


Um - I don't think now is the time to draw too many conclusions.   There are some great people on here especially SOLB

Nah, he's claimed the whole of one side of the L-shaped sofa and is upsidedown and chasing tennis balls in his sleep
