Meds Update

Feb 28

Over a month on the Citalopram and I can definitely feel the difference. Not generally conscious of it, but every now and again I realise that I am reacting differently (better) to situations. My anxiety levels are way down, I’m not crying over stupid little things, my energy for work has improved. I’m not noticing side effects particularly, however I do...

Love Y’all

Feb 20

There’s so much hate and violence and prejudice and intolerance in the world right now. Every time I check the news there’s another atrocity that really, surely, we should have evolved beyond by now. So I want to tell all of my friends that I love you all in a totally non-soppy way and I want you to remember that when you feel low, and to pass it around...

A Glint of Sunshine

Feb 05

Ten days on the Citalopram and I am tentatively going to say I think they may be doing me some good.

He’s given me a low dose of citalopram to...

A Blank Next Chapter

Jan 15

Daughter and I were talking in the car today about her plans for the future, she mentioned it feels like a blank page that she is going to draw on (that’s the artist in her).¬†In a way I get a blank page, well it’s a whole new chapter, starting September 2015 when my youngest¬†starts university. It is uplifting (and a little scary) to consider what I am...

F. U. N.

Jan 13

I’ve realised I need some fun in my life, it’s a long way off to my next convention and I need to be silly before that. I’m getting too serious, in danger of growing older gracefully and that was not my intention.

Prepping for the Next Step

Jan 04

Last year was the year I explored who I am and seriously looked at personal development. This year is when I begin to act. As I discover myself I am slowly forming a plan of how I want to live the rest of my life. My keyword for 2015 is SUPPORT and that is going to be the basis of everything I do this year. And yes Polly, I promise faithfully to take care of...
