So while I’ve been in hospital and recovering from my tummy bug I have been getting used to quetiapine. It has been quite a straightforward transition from respiridone to quetiapine thankfully. I don’t know how I’d have coped if it was a difficult transition while I was in hospital. I have noticed a couple of side effects, such as dry mouth and a weird change in taste, everything kind of tastes salty. But the worst one is lethargy. I have been weened onto the drug week by week and I am permanently exhausted. I think it’s having a positive effect on my mood mainly because I’m just too tired to think about anything. I’ve been resisting the urge to nap, as this screws up my bedtime routine, but it’s no easy task. It’s a hard type of tired to explain. I feel heavy, soggy, drugged. I don’t enjoy feeling like this but it’s getting me through a tough time so I’m thankful for that.

Hope you’re all well xxz
