Goodbye Rash, Hello Brother

June 26, 2008 at 10:59 pm Leave a comment

The (very small) rash seems to be disappearing now that I’ve gone down to 100mg again. I think in a couple of days it’ll be gone. This is good news. I’m planning to stay at 100mg for a week or so, then try 200mg again. One of the things I have to remember – since I’m doing this without any kind of medical approval – is how many tablets I’m not using, so I can go to my GP and ask for more tablets at the appropriate date, thereby avoiding questions like “But surely you ran out of tablets two weeks ago?”

So, just as a reminder to myself. I am currently 7 (the week I stayed on 100mg instead of moving to 200mg) + 2 (these two days having gone back down to 100mg) = 9 tablets up.

I’m going back to my home town to see my brother this weekend, (I haven’t seen him for well over a year now and since I’m feeling better…) so there will be a lack of updates and response until Monday or Tuesday next week.

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.
