Been put on amitriptyline for chronic pain. Any one have any experiences with this? I’m also on fluoxetine so this will be interesting. At least I’ll be happy.

Seeing the neurologist today. Rather nervous as I have absolutely no idea what to expect. The nerves are stopping me from sleeping - it’s 5am already and I’ve had no sleep. I am going to be in a bad way by the time my appointment rolls around.

Every part of me aches. My chest feels like I’m being physically pinned down.

I have an appointment at the job centre to discuss the decision ATOS have made but ATOS haven’t even bothered to get in touch with me. I have no idea what their decision is, if they’ve even made it. I sent my form to them almost three months ago now.

I’m not even sure if I can get out of bed, let alone head to the job centre. Screw this.
