#054 – Psychiatric Admission – Day 14

Two weeks! How time flies. I think this admission is coming to a close. Gem (psychiatrist) is still playing with my med’s (story of my life). He has increased the antidepressant Lexapro which will take weeks to kick in. As always, my Clozapine has been slightly increased. I am still taking Nitezepam but I’ll be ceasing this medication once I leave hospital unless I somehow convince Gem to keep me on it as a outpatient. If only benzo’s weren’t so bloody addictive! People that get addicted ruin for the people like me who have no dependency to them at all. I also take a three monthly injection of Ivega Trinza. This is a pain in the arse (as that’s where it is inserted)

I’m guessing I’ll be here for another week. Ten days at the most. I always know when it’s time to leave. There’s no point in keeping people here that don’t want to be here. I missing home a bit. Just the simple things like managing my own medication and seeing my dog. All in good time!

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. Please feel free to contact me and I promise to get back to you. Have a nice day!
