Ok, GP's 2day 2 make sure I had enough pain relief & warfarin etc 2 last over the festive period. Mentioned that my muscles & tendons etc seem 2 b getting worse & that I'm dropping things all the time. He say's I need 2 discuss it with my rheumy but seeing as Rheumy has decided 2 basically take a 'jolly' 4 the next few months, that aint gonna b till Feb. Anyway, told him my antipsychs r low & could he also redo a prescription 4 those please but change them if poss 2 something that aint gonna make me want 2 devour everything in sight. He looked at me blankly (despite having all my info up on the screen) & asked why the Hell I was on antipsychs as he could c no history of mental instability in my notes up until 2 years ago, so had 2 go thru all the malarkey about lupus & APS causing cns probs & psychosis in some cases. "Oooh, I've heard of that" he says. He THEN asked why I had Oramorph on repeat, as well as Cocodamol, Dihydrocodeine, Diclofenic, & Tramadol. WHY do I have 2 explain everything every time I go there?!!!!!! He then preceded 2 look at me as I was absolutely barmy as I started rattling off what was wrong with me, what I took each med 4 etc etc & why I was prescribed antipsychs in the first place (didn't we just have that conversation?). "Ah, if u're neuro put u on them that's fine" I bloody KNOW it's fine, I've been taking them over 12 months u fool! "U r in a bit of a pickle with all theses problems aren't u miss?" he declared. Yeah, no sh*t Sherlock, tell me about it! So I left his office far more confused than I was when I went in there & I only wanted a new script 4 my meds! And I thought I had problems?! I've come away with all my meds that I wanted though & with a bloody great smile on my face thinking maybe I aint that barmy after all :0) Think I need a lie down lol!
