Geodon

GB is on her third night of no Zyprexa, just Geodon. GB’s Dad sees no differences, but can’t stand her  inability  to sit still, the constant pressured speech, or her manic laughing- all of which have gotten worse over the past two days. If there weren’t so many commitments here, I would take GB to either Myrtle Beach or my sister’s in Raleigh and keep her there until our  appointment with the new shrink on March 1st. Since that is not feasible, I will have to keep her close to me.

Tonight she was in tears as she asked me why Daddy and MK like Hope better. I hope there is at least some relief as the Geodon builds up in her system.
