#052 – Laxative Overdose

This blog is something you may not want to read. Whenever I’m in hospital I get bad constipation and on this visit it had been about ten days since I had any joy. I tried medications in the past that didn’t work so I would buy two litres of prune juice which did the job. On this occasion I was given a laxative bar by one of the nurses. I broke off a quarter of it which is equivalent to one dose. I was sceptical that it would work so in a couple of hours I ate the rest of it. A few hours after this I ate a whole bar so that was 8 does. Still nothing. I had given up hope. The following morning I was so unwell. I can’t remember being this sick ever. I had to stay in my room all day so I had the toilet near by. I had stomach aces, I was nauseous, I had the sweats. I was feeling like death. This lasted until mid-afternoon. My shrink has prescribed me some medication to take at night. I apologise… I may have given you more information than you cared to read! I learnt my lesson!

I'm a 37 year old who lives in Melbourne Australia. I have many interests but I want to base this blog on my mental health. I have schizophrenia, depression & anxiety. I have 15 years experience with psychiatrists and I have had close to 20 hospital admissions. I plan on writing about my delusions, voices, paranoia, depression and how to deal with them psychiatrists :) I really hope this blog can help someone.
