I'm Alive and Okay

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let you all know how I'm doing. I'm sorry if I worried anyone.

I'm on a new medication called Mirtazapine. I haven't had the chance to look up the brand name yet. I'm curently taking half of a 15 mg tablet and it is wiping me completely out. I was awake for 3 hours yesterday, and I think I'll be awake for around 5 hours today.

Too soon to tell if this will work. It will be about 2 weeks before the effects of the anti-depressant part kick in. In the meantime, as soon as I can wake up without "feeling hung over," as my pdoc put it, I can take a whole tablet.

Well, I'm too tired to stay online. So, I'm going to go lie on the couch until it is time to sleep.

The Figure

In the dark and dreary night, the helpless figure stares out among the people talking about him. He tries to speak, but he is unable to be heard or seen. All he can do is watch and listen. He listens to stories that are about him and what used to be, as well as questions being asked about him. They seem concerned, but he feels like he will soon be forgotten. He will soon become a memory, then possibly forgotten all together.

The figure sighs in discouragement and fades away all together.
