Sleep

On the 27th December 2022 I came off my antipsychotic medication.

It was originally given to me in 2013 because I had a neighbor from hell living underneath me.

It was to help me sleep at night and keep me able to cope with all the aggression and hatred coming from the neighbor.

8 years later I have moved house and no longer need the medication.

In the end they had me on 400 milligrams of Quetiapine, which is a very high dose. So when I came off it (slowly at first) I went into major withdrawal symptoms.

Last night 1st February 2023 I slept normally for the first time since the 27th December 2022.

  • sleeplessness
  • constant talking/singing out loud.
  • agitation
  • manicness
  • obsession with sexual thoughts.
  • feelings of powerlessness.
  • tachycardia
  • high blood pressure.

I’m SO grateful as I was worried the sleeplessness was permanent.

The Origin of Gender

I’ve been watching many programs about gender recently. I want to understand both sides of the debate, not just one. This is important because the gender issue is SO confusing.

The fact was that between the ages of 15 to about 25 I was gender fluid. I wasn’t a girl and I wasn’t a boy. I wore makeup every day, and sometimes wore female clothes (but never dresses), just women’s tops etc. At the time I had no words to describe this period. So I do have lived experience about this issue.

I wish I kept photos of some of my hair dos. They were amazing.
