Weird dream, freak weather and semblance of normality

Day 7/14, fluvoxamine. Tuesday. After writing my last post, my brain bestowed upon me a weird dream in which I had a rich classmate take an interest in dating me. He had his own private plane out for me and voiced his interest for me on the first date. Never mind that in the dream,…

Say It In Photographs: Sodium valproate versus fluvoxamine

Here’s the thing I find really funny: my sodium valproate medication for my epilepsy is twice the size of my fluvoxamine tablets and is oblong in shape. Fluvoxamine tablets are tiny white pills, film coated pretty much the same way as the SV. Yet I can swallow the SV with just one gulp of water…

Don’t ask me about romantic relationships, here is why.

Day 6/14, Fluvoxamine. I’ve been writing fluvoxamine so many times that my phone immediately comes up with it in prediction now. I’m also going to switch up the title format for my fluvoxamine posts to spice things up. I’m going to be 23 and definitely not a kid anymore, and questions about my relationship status…

I remember the young artsy girl I used to be

Went to the art market at Singapore Art Musuem, saw a lot of usual stuff and a few unique stuff. I’ll cover the event for my weekly Friday post this week. Just for this week, it will be 5pm Singapore time, instead of 1am Saturday Singapore time as it is more geared towards my local…

Dreams… And God.

After last night’s bout of ‘tearfulness’, the thought of sleeping alone didn’t appeal much to me, so I moved into my mother’s room on the sleeping mat on the floor. I’ve been keeping my hair half up in a bun as I am not bothering to comb it. I’ve also started vivid dreaming again. Today…

Dietary changes are in order

So I just realised the stomach discomfort I’ve been feeling these 3 days have a logical reason -apparently fluvoxamine has common side effects which include nausea, gas and loss of appetite. This explains why I can’t keep a full meal down and I’m so easily full, yet so hungry in the morning, which is the…

Bandcamp picks: A compilation

One of my university essays led to me discovering the wonders of Bandcamp, as I wrote on the music industry in contemporary times and music social networking sites. As a music consumer Bandcamp has been a boon for me. Hence it felt right to compile a list of my favourite music so far on Bandcamp,…

Day 3, Fluvoxamine

Friday. Woke up sleepy today because of the flu pill I took for my severe runny nose. 9+am, close to 10, that is, instead of the almost 9 sharp am my antidepressants has ensured I wake up at. I continued reading on my phone the e-novel I have started reading on Wattpad. Somewhere along I…

Day 2, Fluvoxamine

Thursday. I went without the sleep aid pill last night because I didn’t want to be sleepy the entire day. No significant dreams which I can remember, though now I understand why my sleep aid pill has to have the reducing anxiety effect. One of the first things I had to do was check my…

Day 1, Fluvoxamine

Wednesday. I’m set to take one tablet of flucoxamine every night. Another white pill to aid sleep, “when needed”. Both drowsiness-causing, which is very welcome as today’s the first time I’ve slept through dark hours through to the sunlight hours. The 2nd doctor cautioned me that my depression may get worse temporarily as my body…
