Ninja Beckie. Was it the diazepam? O.o

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 12:49 PM

Probably the diazepam!

Have you got much to do np?

nonperson 14-04-2021 01:02 PM

Laundry and shower and wrap a birthday present and clean the kitchen and clean the shower and start tidying the garden... =/

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 01:23 PM

Fun times!
Good luck on your quests!

shadow-light 14-04-2021 01:28 PM

there's probably something i should be doing, no idea what though

nonperson 14-04-2021 01:33 PM

I'm starting with cleaning the shower... ick.

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 01:41 PM

I'm just doing some laundry today
Not much else going on!

not_so_insig 14-04-2021 03:04 PM

Hello all.

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 03:12 PM

Hi dawn

shadow-light 14-04-2021 03:12 PM

today is dragging :laugh: like seriously dragging



i've semi tidied the living room, got the slow cooker slow cooking, and been binging on Orange Is The New Black - never watched it beofe but everyone else seems to have watched it so I started it yesterday and it's a relitively good distraction

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 03:17 PM

Well done Hazel!

I really like orange is the new black

shadow-light 14-04-2021 03:20 PM

i am liking it so far, wasn;t keen n the first couple of episodes but further in I've gotten the more I'm starting to like it.



THink I might go for a walk

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 03:23 PM

A walk sounds good!

tamobhuuta 14-04-2021 03:30 PM

I like walks but I've just been running on the spot in front of the TV most days.

not_so_insig 14-04-2021 03:37 PM

I am hoping to go for my weekly walk around the park at the bottom of the road tomorrow.

nonperson 14-04-2021 04:21 PM

I might go for a walk too. Can't decide if I want to or not... but could combine it with a food shop. Hmm...

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 04:26 PM

I'm going to walk round the car park when it's fresh air break

nonperson 14-04-2021 04:35 PM

Scenic =P

When's that going to be?

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 04:38 PM

Very! :p
It's at 4 so not long to go!

nonperson 14-04-2021 07:42 PM

How was it?

My walk was nice.

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 07:57 PM

I didn't get to walk because staff wouldn't let me put my shoes on :plain:
But i did go outside!

Glad your walk was nice :)

shadow-light 14-04-2021 09:34 PM

I hate shoes




least you got outside even if it wasn't very walky

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 10:23 PM

True!
I would have just walked without shoes but the gravel is very sharp and spikey!

They have confiscated all my drinks because i have low sodium. Not happy!

nonperson 14-04-2021 10:37 PM

How does coke zero affect sodium?

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 10:39 PM

I think it's fluids in general. I have to restrict all fluids to 500mls i think they said

nonperson 14-04-2021 10:41 PM

Oh, weird o.O

Have you been drinking too much and flushing all your sodium away?

(Proof of my top notch medical knowledge right there)

Cacoethes 14-04-2021 10:43 PM

Haha!
I probably have tbh!

I've had low sodium before and felt so awful i needed IV fluids so I'm just glad it's not that bad this time!

Off to bed now.
Nighty night everyone :-D

nonperson 14-04-2021 10:51 PM

Night night. =)

shadow-light 15-04-2021 11:02 AM

you need one of those rehydration packets that you are meant to use after dyareah, diearear, dhyreear, ok... how the actual hell do you spell that?

Cacoethes 15-04-2021 11:02 AM

Morning guys!

Ninja post Hazel!
I can't spell it either :p
But yes a rehydration pack would be good

shadow-light 15-04-2021 11:03 AM

my point was meant to be that sodium is an electrolyte, and those rehydration packs are full of electrolytes and are literally designed to rebalance peoples

shadow-light 15-04-2021 11:03 AM

Ooo now you are ninja posting :P

[Luna] 15-04-2021 11:04 AM

Morning loves

tamobhuuta 15-04-2021 11:12 AM

Hi everyone :) how were your nights?

[Luna] 15-04-2021 11:15 AM

Not great, feeling pretty groggy and low this morning.

How about you guys? what are you guys up to today?

Cacoethes 15-04-2021 11:29 AM

I would have thought they would have something like that Hazel but they do not.

Morning Luna and tamo

Sorry you're not feeling great Luna *hugs if ok*

I'm not doing a lot. Probably will need another blood test as my clozapine blood results are red again :(
As well as low sodium!
What is wrong with my body?! This never normally happens!

not_so_insig 15-04-2021 11:31 AM

Could you order lucozade sport (not the energy) with your next drinks order Beckie? It's supposed to be good for restoring vitals especially after diarrhoea.

Cacoethes 15-04-2021 11:51 AM

That's a good idea Dawn!

shadow-light 15-04-2021 11:57 AM

oh, lucozade is a good shout!

not_so_insig 15-04-2021 12:03 PM

I found this thread in first aid it might be useful. Basically it says what I am saying try lucozade sport or similar sports drinks.

https://www.recoveryourlife.com/foru...ght=Low+sodium

Cacoethes 15-04-2021 12:09 PM

Thanks for that Dawn. That's really helpful :)

nonperson 15-04-2021 12:11 PM

Lucozade is full of sugar and crap though. Better to stick with the dioralyte, or you can literally just make your own "sport's drink" with squash and a pinch of salt (such a small amount so you don't taste it at all).

What is it that the bloods pick up for clozapine? Is it interacting with anything else new that you're taking at the moment? =/

Body's rarely behave, I hope it levels out soon Beckie <3

And... morning everyone <3

[Luna] 15-04-2021 12:47 PM

Sorry you body is being a troll Beckie :(

shadow-light 15-04-2021 12:53 PM

I am 99% sure that Clozapine can result in low sodium (also akathisia which could be what they are referring to by the mixed state thing). So in a way it may just be your body still adapting to the meds rather than it just being awkward for awkwardness sake


no idea if that helps :laugh:

Cacoethes 15-04-2021 01:01 PM

Thanks guys <3

Clozapine affects your white cell count so mine is now really low. Was so close to finishing Clozapine titration! It was meant to finish on Friday!
Gah!

nonperson 15-04-2021 01:05 PM

Oh boo, those little guys are quite important to have in abundance, especially at the moment. =/

shadow-light 15-04-2021 01:09 PM

damn, ye. it's one of those meds that in some people just messes with too much of the body unfourtunately



hopefully your body will sort itself out soon

Cacoethes 15-04-2021 01:12 PM

Yep!
I don't understand why it's happening this time as all the times I've been on it before i never got so much as an amber result, let alone red!
Like, why is it happening now?!

Thanks

Anyway. What is everyone up to today?
It's nearly lunch time. Not hungry but I'll grab a sandwich i think

shadow-light 15-04-2021 01:17 PM

sometimes the body is just like that... the human body is both incredible and also stupid :P



I need to go to the post office... been putting it off for over a week but got some PIP stuff to post off

Cacoethes 15-04-2021 01:18 PM

Very true!!

Yeah that probably should be done asap!
