Cheers gents.

Had a good night's sleep last night.

After 2 rough ones. 

Shaky shoulders and lower legs this morning, but definitely a bit better.

Lad's off to uni soon, and we've had some stressful times over his future, which hasn't helped.

Apron strings and all that!

Come for a brew and a chat whenever you need to mate. Always here! 👍

my heads gone today, 

think i've beaten the mental health issues I had, but it's well and truely goosed and exhausted after today. 

Been down to London today to try and empty my brothers boat, set off at half three (should have been four but Dad turned up early as he couldn't sleep). I went down a few weeks ago and it didn't bother me, today bagging up over 20 bags of "rubbish" did, as the "rubbish" was his stuff, that is either destroyed from boat life or stuff beyond any practicable way of keeping. 

Somehow how to sell a boat now that's 250 miles away :(

Fucking hell!

I was thinking how I could relate to the chap on the left!

We had a lad who sat near us for the first 10 years at the reebok, he chucked himself of a bridge think it was after a defeat at Man City, whether that played a part I don’t know, his mum took over his season ticket for a couple of years then his brother, both stopped a good few years back. The Norwich video brought it all back to me. Very sad.

Got through it, thank fully we managed to make light of the situation as best we could, trying to get a boat moving was erm... eventful. Need to be back in work where I don't get a second to think

 

Good news you are through it, defo keeping busy helps, also exercising is a massive boost for me and I believe everyone should include it in their weekly routine.

Quick question, what side effects have people had from sertraline? 

How long have you been on it?

At first, I felt out of it- a zombie- and worse, until it levelled out. Can take a while, and differs for everybody. 

Seems to work as I manage better now, though other treatments also play their part.

Used to have terrible night sweats, but stopped that by getting rid of the duvet and using lightweight blankets etc. Don't get so hot.

Still get very vivid dreams, but for the most part they're just bizarre and quite entertaining!

The odd bad one, but not the end of the world.

Started today. It has been an ongoing thing for me since I was pregnant with the lad who was 2 in July. I thought I was fine, but soon realised I’m not as fine as I thought. 
 

Got a review in three weeks time with the GP. I have to try it, it’s no fun for me or anyone else to see me on my bad days.

You're also entering what may well be the worst time of the year for mood.

Summer has gone and we're careering towards winter.

Always gets me, and been a bit worse this year.

Stick with it, and message me if you want.

Not had Sertraline but when I first started on Citalopram it was frankly not very nice. I felt really not with it but it only lasted a few days for me.

I am hoping to come off them next year, getting winter out of the way first.

Was just about to post the same. They were the first prescription I'd ever had, and I felt like an emotionless shell of a person for a few weeks, so I stupidly just stopped taking them and pretty quickly everything went even worse than it had been before I started on them. However they make you feel, DO NOT stop taking them without speaking to your GP first@bolton_blondie.

Been there ever year!

I've reduced to minimum dose now, and in summer always feel as if they're not necessary. 

Then bang! September/October comes along, work slows, light disappears, boredom/cortisol/blood sugar and all sorts return. 

Thank fuck the whites are doing well.

Exaclty same. That first spell was awful.

It peters out though BB. Just give them time.

Maybe take them before bed so most of the sides are gone by the time you wake up...

Or take them first thing whilst you're busy so you can battle through if they make you jumpy and restless.

Keep at it love.

Hows everyone doing?

 

 

Had my appointment with neurology today!

Tremendous doctor, who was remarkably like Ben out of Short Circuit. 

Got to start on Valproate again for epilepsy. 

Had a go on this some time ago at the height of my difficulties and it didn't go well.

He spoke about it as soon as I arrived, and I thought "shit".

By the time he was done, I was placated and quite positive about it.

Fair play to the fella, and I reckon the fact that I'm not scared to death of it means I must be on the better side of things.

With any luck, I'll be able to fuck pregabalin off over time too, which would be great.

Happy Christmas! 😊
