Hello Debs, so sad and Chris

Thanks so much for your kind comments. It means a lot to me to know I haven't been forgotten.

I have psych appointment next Wednesday. Hope he comes up with something good

I've been put on a very new AD called Vortioxetine

I won't be able to start for another week because only have the JW who can get it for me and he only comes Wednesday. His colleagues also Friday but I don't take part in those propaganda sessions.

Meanwhile a huge 300gm dose of anti psychotic quetiapine is keeping me going despite horrid side effects including leg cramps

A new American has joined us here, very mild mannered and did nothing much wrong either. I told him he is desperately unlucky.

Hi isap

I'm glad you've got a new AD to take. I really hope this one helps.

Your poor American fellow prisoner is going to find just how tough it is. As you said he's unlucky

Take care
God bless

Hi Debs

New AD costs about £200 for one month. Pregabalin at 300mg even more. I'm hoping to get funding from a UK charity

God bless

Hi Isap

The drug companies are all crooks. They argue that they've to re coup the money spent on research but it's an argument they overplay.

Whilst I think 300mg is helping, it isnt. making me well. I see the doctor on Thursday.

I presume you have recently heard of the possibility of getting funding. It would be ideal for you.

God bless

Hi Debs

Could you tell me more about funding?

I got receipts for my medications today. That well meaning but idiot JW had bought brand versions of all 3 items. In generic it would have cost about half.
I did Bible study with him and apparently there are hundreds of millions of angels working hard for Jehovah for billions of years. I didn't ask what jobs they were doing but they could start by looking after us.

The new anti-depressant is priced cheaply here compared to Europe. £80 odd still a lot but with the help of friends and family it's affordable, and that's maximum dosage.

Sorry to hear about the pregabalin. On forums I've seen, patients haven't really had good results till 450/600 so an increase is in order. Side effects my foot. Increased appetite and dizziness on standing from lower positions is about it.

God bless

Hi Isap

Sorry, when I mentioned funding it was in response to what you wrote.

Yes. I think the angels should really examine their priorities. I get irritated as well with the idea of karma. It's very popular here. But karma suggests that many of us have done something bad and that is why we're suffering. When I read the Dalai Lama's autobiography he suggested that if a woman was married to an abusive man then maybe in a former life she had been an abusive husband. I think that's quite insulting.

Do you think your ADs are working? And have you told theJW guy what meds to get next time. Probably he hasn't needed meds and doesn't know there's a difference.

God bless

Hi Debs

I've only been on the new ADs 4 days. I've reduced the antipsychotics because side effects terrible. Am facing many problems here right now and have a character witness on my behalf who may not show up at tomorrow hearing

Regarding the JW, I gave him an empty packet of the generics to buy and he goes and buys the brand with a 450% mark up. The guy is scatterbrained but worse than that, he doesn't think which will come as no surprise. Those brand meds cost me 6 weeks of food here. We can't afford that kind of waste. But what can you do. He's a slave to his own conditioning. To accept the utter garbage he believes in, you have to behave like a robot. I'm finding myself antagonist towards these JW because of the same inane expression they all have but need their help desperately.

My brother in law will be here next Thursday.

The dalai karma is another idiot.

God bless

Isap xx
