Hippy Hippy Shake

I saw Portillo last week for my annual physical check up. Apparently my cholestrol is still up despite the Simvastatin so he's changed it to Atorvastatin 40mg. I told him I've recently developed a fine tremor and a wee bit excessive salivation but it's not really a problem so he's leaving that meantime.

Moonstone was here to see me again today. Although I'm still below par, I had to admit to feeling slightly better. Too early to be due to the Citalopram, more likely due to my week being broken up by a trip to the day centre, a family visit and we even went out for a meal on Sunday. So hopefully I have reached a turning point.

Don't Bring Me Down

I've been very flat. Disinterested in everything. Not producing music and not even listening to it which is a bad sign. I've also been sleeping around 14 hours a day which is a sure sign that I'm below par. Moonstone came to see me yesterday with a medical student in tow. It was a slow protracted interview with me mostly answering in monosyllables. She decided to start me on an antidepressant. So I'm now on Citalopram 20mg as well as my Depakote 2000mg and Abilify 20mg.
