Art group was ok. Wasn't pleased with my drawing, but enjoyed being there and doing it. Got good sleep last night, must wake up before it gets hot tomorrow and run, not too early though. Taken tablets

Weird to have such a good mood with so little sleep. Going to risk not taking a sleeper because I'm tired. Just made a stir fry with extra lime juice, sugar, and chilli. Taken tablets.

Mentally good in terms of 'can I cope with life at the moment?' If you said 'are you happy with what you feel able to do?' I'd say no. Tired of slow progress but it's better than none. Taken tablets.

Also, I had a 10 - 20 second loss of reality earlier today, and tried to shrug it off, hope it's just a drug related flashback and nothing more.

I've cut down on sugars and food in general too, but I managed to make the scales go higher when I weighed myself earlier. I hope it's just formation of some leg muscles I need for the running...

Yeah, we have been making big changes to our diet. I just have to find the motivation to exercise. Any tips?

http://bit.ly/Exercise5k This app made all the difference, but it's UK only, but you can get around that: https://www.androidpit.com/how-to-install-incompatible-apps-or-region-restricted-apps-on-android (apple workaround is different)

Don't overdo the exercise! I usually start things with lots of enthusiasm, doing it several times a week, only to find out i can sustain that, so in the end I just quit completely.. better start a bit easy, till you get into the rhythm and increase

Lieteke G
13 May 2018 ·

It slowly?

Don't worry! I definitely won't overdo the exercise! I don't think I'm capable of it, and being on anti-psychotics at the same time.

I think it might be exercise related asthma. Although I'm sure I wasn't affected pre-clozapine. That medication almost destroyed my breathing and swallowing reflex.

Hey John, I'm making an animation about depression for a competition and I was thinking of using your track β€œMellow Sleepytime” for it. I just want to know if I have your permission :) your name will be in the credits as well

John T
11 May 2018 ·

Yes! Of course!

John T
11 May 2018 ·

Send me a link when the animation is done and I can provide a 'scored' version of the track especially to fit the animation. I still have the project file so it will be simply moving the different sections of music around to fit what's going on.
