As those of who read.my blog know I’ve been struggling under the weight of several problems, which now seem to be coming to a head.
Firstly, I went back to the GP over my severe iron deficiency, we are both amazed I’m still standing, usually 12 is cause for concern, and mine was 3, literally no iron in my system.
I’ve been taking iron tablets and am suffering the nearly all the listed side effects, the nausea being the worst.
I reported back to the GP, who , said that these should subside, as my condition was severe it will be a while before we see significant results, but not to hesitate if there is no improvement.
We then moved into my depression, we talked at length about how I felt which us pretty crap most if the time, and felt that thus time around I would like councelling, anything really to give me some relief.
So Sertraline(Zoloft) 50mg was prescribed the lowest dose, she gave me a months supply, so 1take a day, too early to tell about my moods, but the side effects are a bit grim, racing heart, not sleeping much.
She also gave the number for Mind a charity for mental health sufferers, I called and have an over the phone assessment tomorrow at 2.30pm I’m quite nervous, but it’s a step in the right direction.
I also talked to my doctor about my continued homeless state which a turn for the worse in the last few days.
When not flat sitting I have one other place which can have use if the sofa for a few days, seems I ran out of luck they moved out, so Thursday got a little sticky and I ended up sleeping at the shop where I work, and have been there since, I’ve nit even told the owner,( as ignorant as she is about things she won’t mind this) so I need to fess up soon.
I shall be telling them this when assessed tomorrow, never rains but it pours, just hoping when I reach the end of this road, there’s a corner.
