I'm definitely getting old. When I was walking down the stairs this morning my feet went out from under me and I ended up sliding down them on my rear end. :mad:

I don't know, my body just doesn't seem to work as well as it did when I was younger than 3000 years old. :(

I tried making an account where I'm born in year 1 but this forum automatically sets your birth date to 2001 if you set it to 1 and you cannot change it once it's set. That's discrimination against old people.

My dentist wanted me to get one because my temperature was half a degree above the upper limit 38°C vs 37.5°C.

Im quite Anoyed because somethimes peaple call us because they have issues whit wasps, and often they whined in your ear.. etc,
They get the Number of a Specialist who have all permints because a Beeceeper isnt allowd to make anything against whasp..
In Germany, you have to pay a big penality if you are cought for remove a whasp hive,
I know some beeceepers dit this as a bit "Honey Sell PR" even if not eveyone who call buy a jar of honey after this..

And because whe are in the Internet whit our Beekeeper Supply, who they gonnna call ?? , no not the Gostbusters, they call us ;(

While I was at the hospital, they took me off Vraylar and Trintellix, and put me on Cymbalta and Invega, along with keeping me on Klonopin. They mostly did this because they can't afford to stock Vraylar and Trintellix. :p

Cymbalta used to be great for me when I was first on it back in like 2016, but it's not doing much for me now. They even have me on a higher dose than before, but I still feel pretty bad.

I wanna stop taking all my meds cold turkey, but I'm on a high enough dose of Klonopin that I would black out and do crazy stuff if I stopped it. I'm going to have to convince my psych to wean me off that first.

In my experience, it helps the conversation go smoother if you're able to start to wean yourself off drugs before you have the conversation. Even if it's all metered out in single pill form, you could start by having a day off a week, then two days off a week (say midweek and weekend), then you can move even more aggressive by taking the drug on alternate days (so you end up having 3 or 4 doses per week).

But that said, I've never taken the drugs you're on currently, and also haven't researched them, and have no real expectation as to what cold turkey could be like with them, so it probably won't go as smoothly as I'd put it out here.

Man, no-one's been using the Caring Corner. What's (not) wrong with us?

I think my Cymbalta finally kicked in sometime between when I last posted and now. I have another old problem that resurfaced though. I can't stop ordering pizzas when I have money to spend. It's how I originally got my avatar. :p

In the past two weeks alone, I have three orders of Little Caesar's and one of Papa John's. This hasn't been good for my weight, which is up from 280 pounds when I got out of the hospital last month to over 320 pounds right now.

We haven't reported in due to nothing massively newsworthy occurring. I've been working my way through my collection of PC games, and Peony wants to hibernate till spring due to today being chilly and wet.

I’m not familiar with the circumstances but I just wondered whether you’d considered baking your own pizza instead of ordering in? Kneading the dough alone ought to earn you some of the calories, the whole process releases endorphins and making it yourself is usually much healthier than the ingredients Papa John’s etc. put in theirs! :)
