Stitches

I’ve just taken my last antibiotics and have found out that the fastest and easiest way to split a 20mg citalopram tablet in half is to bite through it (although citalopram tastes bad).

I was doing some research on medical sutures out of a vague interest in what kind of stitches had been used on my wrist (probably blue monofilament nylon) and stumbled across an entertaining magazine. It’s called Stitches, and is a Canadian medical humour magazine. It’s targetted at doctors and other medical professionals and Canadian ones at that, but I’m finding it amusing even though I’m an English and the closest I’ve ever got to being a medical professional is about as tangential as you can get, while still occasionally talking to surgeons.

You can access two years of archives in PDF form here.

I also rather enjoy the adverts for medications, for reasons I’m not sure I understand myself.

Hi, I'm James. I'm a 26 year old guy from England with bipolar disorder (currently well controlled). I also have a circadian rhythm sleep disorder (not so well controlled). This blog has charted my journey from mental illness, through diagnosis and, recently, into recovery. It's not always easy, but then, what is?

Self-righteous note about smoking

As of 12th September 2008 it has been forty five weeks since I quit smoking. So in another seven weeks it'll have been a whole year.
