Recurring bad dreams and an Ikea trip

Day 12.5/14, fluvoxamine. Sunday. I don’t want to have to take a lot of medications everyday, so I went without the hydroxyzine on Saturday night after having already taken it two nights in a row. It backfired on me, had a exhausting bad dream. It’s inconsequential to share what went on in the dream, however…

ALONE time. Unhelpful Christians, and suicide thoughts.

Day 11/14, fluvoxamine. Saturday. I need some space alone right now. I’ve been out all day and what I wanted most perhaps as much as a good dinner is time away from crowds. I went to Fantasy Desserts at Orchard Gateway after my creative writing workshop at Goodman Arts Centre wrapped up for the rare…

Service animals and brain silencers

Day 10/14, fluvoxamine. Friday. My mom said last night that if she were me she won’t be able to live. Medicated and unable to work. = no food on the table. Well it’s good that this health calamity is upon me, who’s having a semester progression break, and not her, the household sole breadwinner then….

Restless sleep, so many questions.

Day 9/14, fluvoxamine. Thursday. I did not have a restful sleep last night. I find it hard to comprehend fully what went through my head while I was asleep, but it definitely involved a lot of going about here and there, a fear of running into ghosts (a continuation of one of my past bad…

Sleepy.

Day 8/14, fluvoxamine. Wednesday. I think I lucked out on the fluvoxamine. The mild strange effects during the first few days have disappeared and I didn’t get the worsening depression effect I was so gravely warned about. Today’s a sleepy day. Probably because I fell asleep listening to music the night before and consequently woke…

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…
