Thanks for keeping in touch with Fiasco. That was a worry.
Yes I've tried lots of ADs but you must remember I live on my own. No fringe benefits. Some meds do have this unfortunate effect. You do need to tell your psychiatrist and he needs to consider potential side effects, especially when it has such unwanted effects. As James said, sometimes it just wears off.
I can see how embarrassing it may be to chat to the psych on this topic but it must be done. Try writing down what does or doesn't happen and just hand him the list. I would not expect him to delve into details but may ask clarifying questions like What is the usual state of play?
Thanks for asking about me. Mostly the pain has gone, my energy level is increasing and I have been writing much on BB. Appointment with the psychiatrist in the morning.
Weather has turned a bit chilly this afternoon. Forced to put the heater on. I have spent the morning at one of my volunteer jobs. Very enjoyable with lots of laughter. We had two people with birthdays so sang Happy Birthday. Then we started talking about birthdays and parties in our past and what would be our ideal party. Great fun. One lady said she would take everyone for a fish and chips lunch.
I told the story of how I went to the birthday party for the girl who lived next door but one. We were the same age. You must take into account WWII had not long ended and we did not have access to much sugar and other goodies. So when the mother passed around some sandwiches I said I wasn't allowed to have sandwiches, only cake. I do blush with shame. Ah well, when you are five years old all's fair in love and war. Perhaps I should put this on Croix memory page. Or maybe not. It is supposed to be for happy memories.
If I may suggest Quercus, how about you have a rest from the forum. You will of course be missed but it may help you regain some energy. You have been pretty full on for a while and coping with your own problems as well. Although I have been talking to you Stressless, Fiasco and The Abyss I have not posted to many other people. I find when you are tired this sort of work can drain you quite easily.
Have some time off. Play with your children, cook delicious meals for your husband (and invite me😊), go for walks either on your own or with others. I know you need to sleep in the day when you work at night, but find some time for you. Coffee and a book sounds good. The forum will still be here when you return.
