We went to Gainesville to see my neurologist, the one who finally fixed the tardive dyskinesia, a side effect of antipsychotics.
I’m going after a huge undertaking, writing a book of my journey with tardive, the docs I saw (you would not believe some of the stories) the ER visits, the 8 mo disastrous titration off Seroquel that only made my symptoms explode (withdrawal emergent syndrome) and the whole lot of it.
How many people have this anyway? Who would know? I am lining up my sources and looking for input. What questions are answerable? Should I ask for a quote? I’m just trying to do the right thing and prevent others from living the same three year marathon nightmare that I did. If you know anyone who is twitching, grimacing or thrashing, send ’em my way. bipolarbrainiacSFL@Hotmail.com
Allison Biszantz Aka “Strong”
Here are this weeks words.
Prosaic…completely unromantic, commonplace. And here I thought it mean profound or prolific.
Canard…an unfounded rumor or story. (I thought it was French for Duck like you have in the restaurants..well done and crispy please)
Rapprochement: re-establishing harmonious or co operative relations…this probably releated to Brexit and EU response. That’s why I’d never seen it.
Lapidary: this is both a noun and adjective. Adjective…an engraver. Noun, something said that’s elegant, concise, deserves to be written in stone.
How about this one??? The innocent are haunted and the haunted are innocent? Where’s my headstone??? Bipolar Disorder a crowded field. If all I end up being is the poster girl for the grisly side effect of Tardive Dyskinesia and related challenges like Stigma, that’s more than enough for me, thanks for reading.
