Day one clozapine. 23.10.17

Okay so I’m at the local mental health hospital, I’ve took my firsts dosage of clozapine.

I’m very anxious, also very worried about how quickly my quetiapine is going down, will picture of the dosage later.

Here’s what I took today. It’s 12.5mg.

My blood pressure was low when standing before I took the medication.

I’m now waiting in the cafe writing this post while waiting for my observations to be done hourly until 4pm.

I’ve also got to have a blood test, which I wasn’t expecting.

I’m feeling very anxious but if this goes as well as hoped I could have my life back.

This is my 12.5 mg of clozapine.

Today is the day, clozapine day 1.

So today is the day it’s coming up to 8am and I’m awake after a broken night sleep.

Honestly, I’m terrified. I think I’m starting on 12.5mg, and quetiapine reduced to 950mg and diazepam to 2mg.

I’m at the local mental health hospital 9:30 to I think 4:30. It’s going to be a long day with hourly checks, like blood pressure. Not sure what else.

I’m going to get up and ready, I will try to keep an up to-date daily blog post on clozapine and how it’s going.

Please keep me safe, Rosie xxx

Day 22- Why I started my blog

I started my blog to let out what I’m going through and how I feel, also with this I’m hoping that I’m able to help others.

The first blog posts were introducing myself and my illnesses. And later found that I was just writing about days out and delusions. But with this I’ve received comments where I’ve managed to connect with people. Also the likes and follows mean so much to me so thank you.

I’m sorry if you can relate to my posts about mental illness because I can sympathise how hard it is or can be to cope day to day.
