    Yeah. I just want it all to stop.
    Hang on in there and hopefully when you start the clozapine you'll feel better. :hugs: I know it's hard but keep going, you can do it.

    Is there anything that helps you feel more safe, like snuggling up in a duvet/sleeping bag and pretending to be a worm (not that I ever do that... :worm:)? Or watching ridiculously cute Japanese cartoons, or drinking soup or tea, or looking at silly kitties on youtube, or playing simple-yet-addictive video games...

    Dino Run

    Infectonator

    Ok so those two examples are *slightly* apocalyptic, but they's good games. :yep:
    I sometimes hide down the side of my bed and make a nest out of pillows and blankets. I'll probably do that in a little bit.
    Watching something funny. :yep:
    Oooh thank you for the games! :hugs:

    Na, it certainly won't be a 'before this time'. Every time me or Wolfy has got a 'we owe you meds' note, it has just been come any time you are free after <day/time> - you can pick them up later in the week assuming you don't need them urgently if you wanted.
    thats ok, because i probably wont even be awake especially if tonight goes how i think its going to end up going :sad:

    they just confuse me, back home we just get the meds from the surgery so its easy :yep: but it seems in towns and cities they use pharmacies which is a scary prospect for lil old me especially when there are other customers and the pharmacist tells me loudly that they only have 10 fluoexetine, and if anyone in there happened to know what that was, i didnt think it was very fair

    Doesn't sound like the best pharmacy - whenever I have had a medication which they don't have any / the full amount, then they just call me over, and then say "We {don't have any / only have <n>} of this item (points to item on script), is it ok if we order it in and it will arrive on {day}".

    Can you see if there is a smaller pharmacy near by which is less busy than the pharmacy at the GP surgery? Either that, or the pharmacies in supermarkets are usually quiet, as you drop off your script, go do your shopping, and then pick up the meds at the end. Usually open until like 10pm if you don't like busy supermarkets.

    One of the medications I'm on needs to be taken after food so after I eat I take it. It's just a case of getting into a routine then you'll remember. But if it doesn't need to be taken with food I'd advise an alarm of some kind, or even put them next to your toothbrush and when you brush your teeth at night you should remember to take it if it's right there.

    I'm pretty good thanks. Seem to have stumbled upon a medication combo which works well with very few side effects so I'm happy about that.
    This is good advice :yy:

    yeah the other phramasist didnt say the name of what i wanted, just this certain woman, who i didnt seem to like anyway as half way through doing my script she decided to have a chat with one of her friends that had come in! i wasnt impressed!

    that is a small one it may have been the time i went in though, friday at about 4pm is probably a bad time to go to the pharmacy really but i NEEDED them meds as id run out completely

    I am pretty sure it is standard practice to be more discrete.

    Hmm, yeah, if it isn't open Saturdays, 4pm on Friday most likely wasn't the best time. This is another advantage of supermarket pharmacies - they are open weekends, so don't get a 'rush' at any one point.

    yeah, think she was ready to go home probably, but i wasnt impressed with her, meant waiting longer than i should have aswell!

    yeah, unfortunately i didnt have much choice as this one is literally down the road from the house, and rorys mum was driving so had to go to it changing drs again soon though probably
