Reduced Dose


A week ago I wrote about how I was forced to think about quitting my medication which is used to treat my depressive disorder and anxiety disease. At that time I only had 5 pills left but couldn’t get new ones due to a serious supply bottleneck. So, I was forced to reduce my regular dose of 20mg down to 10mg, to have a few more days and to not discontinue too fast as this can have side-effects. Now I will write about what happened next. I went to my doctor to discuss the issue. He wanted to give me … Continue reading Reduced Dose

Pigeon Power Napping


I shot the photo of the sleeping pigeon a week ago when I walked through the city. At first I thought the pigeon would have some kind of disease, but when I saw the photo at home, I thought the pigeon does just hold a nap, I’d say a power nap at day time.

A doctor was a little bit confused when he got … Continue reading Daily Prompt: Mr. Sandman

Alive and First Dental Operation Behind Me With Help of Midazolam


I wrote days ago why I didn´t have the time to write much here and why I didn´t want to write anything as I was too nervous. I am more relaxed now but there are still some dental operations next weeks but compared to the last one they are rather minor I guess. Yesterday (Wednesday) was the big day as I had to visit the oral surgeon because of a root end surgery for one tooth and an extraction of another tooth. I decided days before that I would not let them do all this with me without being sedated. … Continue reading Alive and First Dental Operation Behind Me With Help of Midazolam

How I hate sleepless nights…
