I feel better today than I did yesterday. I went to my psychiatrist appointment this morning, and we discussed my symptoms and medication. I told him I was experiencing symptoms daily, but that I didn’t want to change the medication. I am currently on the maximum dosage of Seroquel and Invega. He asked me if I would like to try Clozaril as a last resort, but it requires weekly blood draws. Since we’re going on vacation in November and December, and we’re staying in Gilroy until February, he suggested that I wait until February to decide if I want to try it. I asked him what happens if Clozaril doesn’t work. He said that if Clozaril doesn’t work, then there isn’t anything else they can do for the symptoms. I guess I’ll wait and see.
I received a very encouraging comment on my blog today! I was very happy that I could provide someone else with hope and encouragement, just by writing about my experiences. My writing doesn’t just help me, it is also a source of hope for other people. I’m happy about that. I chanted for 45 minutes this morning after I came back from my appointment. I keep chanting and reading. I’ll do some more packing today too. Slowly but surely, we’re moving out!
