Far out and solid, man! Tuesday, 5 September 2006
This morning, I took my first Citalopram tablet. And I can tell you, nothing prepared me for its effects. An hour later while I was travelling on the tube between Edgware and Camden Town, I found myself feeling somewhat tired. This, I expected. What I didn't expect was for my vision to start spinning, and to feel as though I would fall over if I stood up. I spent much of that journey hunched, with my elbow on the windowsill, head propped on my hand, eyes closed.

When I got to Camden, I felt better, though somewhat stoned. And more so than I felt when I started taking St. John's Wort! Everything around me was making me smile - aggression, loud noises, miserable faces, everything!

Writing this now, I have come down from the stoned feeling. My emotions seem intact. Of course, I am going to have to wait a few weeks before I start feeling the real benefits, but it's a reassuring start.
