This week I've been mainly eating Clozapine :) In truth, it is a worthwhile medication. While I was on Olanzapine, the meds trashed my concentration. When I moved to Amisulpride, my concentration was still poor. Then I switched, with many misgivings, to Clozapine. I've been on the Clozapine for a while now. When I first started, I had to have my blood tested once a week. Now the initial screening process has finished, I now only get my blood tested once a fortnight. The meds still trash my concentration but, during the day, I get a window of opportunity where I can still have normal concentration.

I've been playing around with my PC (Patience), and started experimenting with the KDE's CD/DVD burning tool k3b. So far everything is ok although I haven't tried to master a CD/DVD, I'v just backed up disks to prove that it works.

I've decided to change my central heating. Its on its last legs. I didn't realise how much hassle its going to be. I've got to move my bookcases so the radiators can be installed, I need to get my bathroom tiled ready for the shower to be fitted.

This week, the Assertive Outreach Team Walking Group went to a pub for a meal at the Dyke Neuk. The food was o.k. and it made for a nice change of pace.

I've been socialising with people from Contact in Morpeth. I've dropped in on Tuesday lunch times and Friday nights. We go for a drink afterwards, generally relaxing.

I've been spending more time in Bedlington, with a view to being discharged in July. We'll see how it goes.
