Day 20 – October 20th 2018

Day 16 – October 16 2018

Didn’t get my BP taken this morning. Waking up was hard enough. A nurse woke me at 8.10 to remind me to go and take my meds. They like to clear us out by 8.30 but I went… Read More

Day 2 – PM – October 2, 2018

I accidentally took Seroquel at 3pm today. Let me explain: I had Valium at, let’s say say 2pm. I then spend some time sobbing in public. I then spend more time sobbing in private. So at, let’s say… Read More
