MY BATTLE WITH PSYCH MEDS

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 9, 2014, 4:09 PM
Skin by NorthBlue
Subject


I am battling the side effects of my psych medicines again, and it seems worse than the last time.  I take around 5 different meds for my PTSD.  The main drug is Resperidol.  Taking it changes my vision, causes me to lose my balance, gives me memory problems, makes me restless where I have to pace around the house, and twitching or shaking of the legs.  The next drug is Gabapentin, and it causes dry mouth, weakness, and weight gain.  Then their is Cogentin which can cause hallucinations, uncontrollable twitching of the extremities, and nausea.  The next drug is Klonopin, which can cause pounding heartbeats, slurred speech, and  diarrhea.  
This is what I live with every day.  When I threaten to stop taking them, I get told that I will  wind up back in the psych hospital, and  worsen my chances of ever getting my job back.  My wife has gone ahead and applied for permanent disability, as it becomes clearer and clearer that I might not work again.  This is why I haven't been around here as often as I would like, but deviantART is like a second home to me, and I am blessed to have such good friends here.  I think without deviantART I would end up committing suicide or at least try.  That is how much my life stinks right now.  I just pray to god that no one has to go through this the way I have.  I've lost my job, and am losing the ability to care for my family.  Becky is a big help and I don't know what I would do without her.  
I will not be on here everyday, but will do my best to at least fave and run.  I have so much to catch up on.  I am finding my muse again, so hopefully I will have some poetry to share this month.  I will continue to have the Award Of Excellence, and all of the other features you see on my page.  Thank you to all my friends and watchers, you mean the world to me...

 My continued prayers to my friend Samira, Birgit, Dee, Chas, Selina, and Flori :pray:

To my friends and watchers I wish you a wonderful and prosperous week ahead... :icontimmy64plz:

POETRY CORNER

:iconreham-y:Tulips for You by KmyGraphic :iconreham-y:

Ignorance is BlissWhy speak of words that will trouble the souls of whom I love dearly?
Perhaps some words are better unsaid
I hear the devils in my mind tossing those words around and slamming them in to my skull as if they're made of steal than just fragile harmless letters
It's such a mystery to me that there isn't even a crack in place .
When it actually feels like every bone within me is shattered
Oh those words.. To keep them all locked inside is slowly breaking me apart
I want to scream on top of my lungs
Yell at this cursed life that has chosen me to suffer
Have I done something wrong to deserve this torment?
How can I redeem myself?
Or have I already been sentenced to suffer forever alone?
Great wonderful amazing things perhaps only happen once in a life time
I feel like I'm warped in pleasure for not having to believe in that fairytale anymore
Yet it kills me everyday not to believe in such a thing
As more time goes by the more dead I become
Speak out loud, raise ur voice, and will be here to
The Bipolar FogDrowning in the crowded mess inside my skull
Can't seem to pass the fog that has taken a grip in every piece of my brain
The room of reason and logic is locked away
And the room for mistakes and recklessness is a wide welcoming door
MelodiesThought that I finally did it
Throw out all the dreams and hopes
Of the soulmate that will never come
It is my heart alone, it won't be shared
Sing me all the melodies you want but it won't follow
Yet I stay up at night
When all my act is done and gone
I cry in regrets for the ones that i didn't sing along
Fake smileWith needles and threads I sew to make this smile remain
a fake smile indeed but thats what it takes
to be treated normal once again

Your fairy is called Oak Goblinwitchgreen dragon animated avatar by ftourini
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in forests of oak and lime trees.
She is only seen in the enchanted moment between sleep and waking.
She decorates herself with leaves and berries. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
