Out of my mind

That’s how I have felt for the last few months. I just haven’t felt “normal” at all, most of the days I have been numb. I can feel an improvement in myself as the awful sertraline works its way out of my system and is replaced with escitalopram. I’m having more good periods of time during the days. Having said that  the last three days have been dreadful. I managed to go to the shop yesterday, but today I’m not leaving my flat. The diazepam takes the edge off of the worst periods of my days. I don’t want to become reliant on it though. Instead of taking the prescribed three each day, I have just been taking one per day when I’m feeling really bad.

One positive thing is my favourite coffee shop “Nutshells” has reopened. I plan to go there Thursday with a book and one of my many notepads. I must remember to book in advance due to covid restrictions and the limited space inside to remain socially distanced. I won’t be able to stay to long as I’m sure several other people will want to go ther too.


Another positive is the connections I am making with fellow bloggers. I have received some amazing reviews and messages. I’ve done a guest blog on


and I’m featured on two fellow bloggers sites this month.




Please take a look at their sites. They awesome.

If you like my blog, please remember to like, share and follow. Take care. Martin.
