  "For my brother" (cndcshepherd)

MDJunction to me

imsoblue"I was completely bewildered when I received my diagnosis of HH and cirrhosis. For so many years I had been told that what I was feeling was due to "old age", and I am 61 years old. I knew nothing about hemochromatosis or what to expect and even my family doctor did not have a clue. I found MDJ when I started to search on the internet. I have received so much compassion and education here. I am most grateful that I had the support from the cirrhosis group when I had my first episode of HE. I now know what I need to do to try keep this from happening. (lactulose). I feel very close to the people here. My goal is to educate people about HH and to support those affected by it. I read people's posts and I can just sense when people are feeling that absolute bewilderment. Thank you so much for all that all of you do for others." (imsoblue)

This past week, I had a hallucination within a dream. 

 The next day discovered that I forgot my meds the night before.

As a bonus had a auditory hallucination of the doorbell ringing. The doorbell sounded a little off pitch and no one else heard it.

How many other hallucinations do I have that go unnoticed?

I can understand, I have been known to slap at bugs that are not there, or I think are crawling on me. Girlfriend thinks it is funny, and it is not something I readily mention to my Psych as it happens so randomly, I don't want any anti hallucinatory drugs, as I had in the past as they take the fun out of life for me.

I hope as your meds build up this will even out for you. Suggestion on taking meds is a pill organizer. Works great for me, it has the 7 weekdays and 4 daily slots so I rarely miss my meds. I fill it every Sunday, which reminds me... smilies/wink.gif
