06:47 pm: Medication Changes
At least it wasn't raining today -- Spirit was sitting in the sun on the heating pad in the kitchen as I left for the psych appointment. I talked to him about losing my hair. It's not coming out in clumps like it did with the renal failures, and my renal labs and TSH were normal for me/normal a few weeks ago, so I think it's the Celexa. He said any antidepressant could cause that and I said I'd like to try something else and see. He suggested that we try just cutting down and see if I'm okay. I agreed to that, because I'm good at seeing when I hit danger and calling, but then he suggested that the Prozac that worked really well for me for 10 years before stopping might work again and I could take 10mg while we're decreasing the Celexa. We also talked about depression and the regular things. So I waited to pick up the Prozac and came home.

When I got home, I went out and put the birdfeeder back up and loaded the new seed into it and the metal container I keep it in. The birdfeeder was clean a few days ago and the seed arrived Tuesday, but there's no use in putting it back out in the rain and having to clean it again.

While I was checking in to Kaiser, there was a county deputy sheriff talking to the folks at the desk about a teenage girl who has disappeared. She's mentally ill and they've found her tracking bracelet, cut off, but are looking everywhere. She's afraid of authority and has hidden in dog houses before. As much as it would limit her, maybe it's time for her to go into care.

The neuro's assistant called and moved my appt to Tuesday because the doctor has an emergency tomorrow. Probably just as well that I don't go up there on Friday.

And the Chinese food -- large wonton soup included -- has arrived.

ETA: Never open Chinese mustard packets with a thumb that has a skin break.

Wonton soup is delicious. Mustard in cuts, etc., is not. Enjoy the first, recover from the second, and I hope all the med juggling has the right results!

Busy day for you. I hope the change in meds works for you. I've heard that, too - anti-depressants causing hair loss. Unfortunately, it's down to trial and error then :-(
Hope the thumb has recovered.

Oh, yeah, the thumb stopped hurting a few minutes after I sucked the mustard off. I've been pretty good about not-squeezing lemons in iced tea lately, but I wasn't prepared for the mustard.
