Fine Motor Skills and Antidepressants

Well first things first. Above is a video I posted demonstrating the progress of my hands from my last exacerbation. I had mentioned that they were really stiff and numb as if I had held them in a tub of ice water for half an hour but now they are clearly doing much better. In this case on the piano, it’s still really hard for me to not hit multiple notes at once or to hit the RIGHT notes at all. Timing is tricky and I can’t play as fast or smooth as I ounce did but I sure could fool you into thinking I could play a little haha. Same applies to typing: I make lots of mistakes by hitting two keys at ounce or the wrong one all together but nonetheless, much better.

Secondly, I decided to start taking the new antidepressant that was given to me again: Citalopram. So hopefully in the next few weeks it will start kicking in along with my LDN. Around that time I should be starting school (at the end of this month) so I’m hoping by next month my life will start turning around. Got all my medication organized, threw away the old stuff, been consistent with my shots, getting good sleep, keeping my stress levels relatively low, and will soon work exercise into the picture.

I also went out and took some pictures for the first time in a while, I learned a new technique that I practiced yesterday and was please with the results. Check out the slideshow below. So doing that made me feel pretty good last night! So just got to keep up the good vibe! Take care everyone!

    Not only are you a great photographer, you are quite the pianist. It is great to hear that you are recovering from your relapse. I do hope the new drug combo works wonders for you. Melinda

    Hahaha PSHH, no, mediocre at best, I have yet to dedicate any REAL time to playing the piano like I should have. I COULD be good but I just never dedicate myself to it. Anyways, Im hoping the combo will help as well, we shall see!, THANKS!
