Good News

I had my Psychiatrist appointment this afternoon and the EEG came back all clear no seizure activity recorded. So that’s good news. I’m still feeling a bit off after my missed dose on the weekend. Really surprises how long the shitty feeling is lasting. I spoke to my Psychiatrist about missing my medications on Saturday and explained what it was like and he said that it wasn’t a surprise to him how bad I felt etc given how large a dose I take of them. The sudden lack of the medications and then sudden surge of such a high dose apparently does a hell of a job on ya head.

I have to say it is definitely not an experience I ever want to repeat however for 2 days my brain stopped, I wasn’t anxious, I didn’t have suicidal thoughts, nothing.  But I obviously can’t live that way and the side effects of headaches and everything that went with it was not pleasant. Just trying to look on the positives not having the thoughts, the anxieties was extremely nice.

I am work for one of Australia's big 4 banks in the System Admin Team. I am also a mental health sufferer. Currently diagnosed with OCD, MDD, Panic Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Agoraphobia and Trichotillomania. I also write books and a blog. I am an advocate for change of the view towards mental health sufferers. We can and are beneficial people in society, with much to offer and contribute. We are not all violent, actually the percentage of violent tendencies in the mentally ill and those without mental illness are no different. You may work with someone right next to someone with mental illness and never know. So maybe it's time to re-evaluate your opinions?
