I've been on my new meds for over a week now, and the antibiotics have made me horribly ill the entire time. It feels like I have the flu and gastro. We called the lovely GP on Wednesday, and she said to half the dose because my body obviously couldn't handle it. It hasn't really helped, but I see her in a few days.
Anyway, I saw the dietician and my weight was exactly the same as last week (boo). She's asked me to try and eat at least 800 calories every day to keep my strength up, but I'm not really sure. Some days I've been eating that, while other days I'm closer to 500. Higher calories have never helped with my energy levels or physical strength anyway.
Today I'm curled up on the couch in front of the air conditioner, trying to cool myself down. We're in the middle of a heatwave with days of 36 degrees C (97 F) and nights of 24 C (75 F). Apart from the usual risk of heatstroke, I've been running a fever all week anyway. I have Wasted and my media player to keep me distracted, if I can concentrate for long enough.
As for the paroxetine, I think it's too early to say anything. I see the GP on Tuesday afternoon, and she was going to put my dose up if I haven't had any side effects. Mum thinks I need something like olanzapine again, though it hasn't helped recently, so we're going to ask about that.
Sorry for such a boring post. I've done absolutely nothing this week due to feeling ill, but I felt like I should update anyway.
