New Pills

/When I saw the doctor the other day they wanted me on a muscle relaxer for my back, so they gave me some weird named drug (originally they gave me Flexeril, but I'm allergic to it) and so I looked it up and my friend said it would knock me out so I'm going to try it tonight. I will be so happy if it works. I've had back pain for most of my life, and even with dropping 50 pounds I still have back and foot problems. I've been hallucinating a bit, so I'm going to go back up to 20 mg of Haldol, since that's what has stopped the hallucinations for a while. My psych thought the Geodon with a decrease in Haldol would be good, but I need that extra Haldol. Geo and I saw a really good movie tonight. it's called "He Never Dies" and it's a bit bloody. I have trouble with movies like that, but I could tell when something bad was going to happen and I closed my eyes so I don't get triggered.
Geo and I went to the library today and I got 3 books. One is 11/22/63 by Stephen King about the JFK assassination, one is Duma Key also by Stephen King and Horns by Joe Hill (Stephen King's son). Yes, I am a big Stephen King fan. Geo and I met on a Stephen King fan site and now we've been together for over 10 and a half years. Geo has a huge Stephen King collection, but after Lisey's Story he hasn't gotten any more of his books. He doesn't want to read them from the library since if he doesn't like it he wouldn't want to buy it and he wants to get more for his collection. I started 11/22/63 and it's really good. Geo got some books on photography to learn more about it, since he wants to be a photographer. He is starting out with just taking pictures of things around the apartment, but now that he's lost weight he's walking more and getting pictures of more things. I have my own camera and own photos. Let me know in the comments if you want the links to our photos and I will post them in my next journal.

I\'ve read a lot of Stephen King\'s books. Have you read any by Dean Koontz? He too keeps me glued to his every word.
I hope your new pills work well for you.
Hey, that is wonderful that you lost a bunch of weight. That\'s what I\'m working on now. I\'ve thought it may help my arthritis too but mainly I would be happier and healthier if I\'m lighter. How long has it taken you to lose that much?
I hope you slept well. Hugs!

It\'s great that you and Geo each have a camera and can share picture taking and walking.. The reading the same author is also wonderful. Enjoy.
