21. An antipsychotic!

Well doesn’t that sound terrifying. Today it was suggested that we add Quetiapine to my daily cocktail.  The first thing listed in the BNF is for the treatment of Schizophrenia.  Ok I know that it’s not been indicated here for such reasons, it’s been indicated in a low dose to I guess stabilise my mood.

The problem off course with adding  more mood stabilising type meds is that pretty much all off them cause an increased appetite.  I was already binging and then compensating by purging on mirtazapine before coming in here so I worry about adding another hunger inducing drug into the mix.

I have a genuine fear of weight gain and already feel very self concious about my rolls. I was ill a couple of weeks ago with a stomach bug and my mothers kind words were “well at least you may lose a few pounds” Also trust me, Albinism is bad enough but an obese albino, well lets just say I couldn’t live with myself.

On paper I have the perfect life, good career, supportive and loving partner and a beautiful little son. But today I want to die. It’s time to set my thoughts free. Come along with my daily mental adventures and gain insight into warped thinking and it’s hazards and maybe support me along the way.

  1. I had horrible experiences with this drug and with withdrawal. My psychiatrist still has the audacity to try to push it on me again for my insomnia. No thanks.
