#056 – Psychiatric Admission – Day 15

They forgot my med’s! I fell asleep and the nurses somehow managed to get sidetracked and I didn’t get my Clozapine dose. It’s not as if the nurses are ran off their feet and their main job is to give out medication. It’s not hard. I thought Gem (psychiatrist) would be pissed off as he was on a previous occasion when this happened but he was laid back about it. I took a maintenance dose during the day – just 100mg – which put me to sleep. It’s not easy sleeping during the day in the room I am in. It is a four bed room but I’m the only patient in it because of Covid. The problem is I’m right next to the nurses station so there is plenty of muffled chatter constantly.

The footy is back on. I’ve missed it. I don’t like the off season. Richmond beat the Blues. I’m a mad Bombers supporter. I’m also in the tipping which always makes it interesting. I haven’t been to game in years. My illness restricts me from crowded places. I even find doing the groceries a task.

It looks like I will be going home in a weeks time. Gem still wants to play with my med’s. The story of my life!

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!
