    The Abilify made me feel pukey. I had a week of nausea and reflux (and that was without watching any reality TV). I got some Zantac (Ranitidine) and that sorted it out. The sickness is almost gone now, apparently it's usually just a transient thing w...
  • Down At The Doctors
    on Sep 1, 2010
    Oh God. I don't know how to start this. As you know I'm a man of my word, a man of great discipline, decisiveness, strong character, great moral fibre and well... damn it a man of principles! I would never go back on my word, not now not ever, NEVER!
  • Take It Easy
    on Aug 7, 2010
    I feel I should write something rather just than let the blog stagnate but in all honesty there is nothing much new to report in the land of Mo. I went for my ECG as planned and surprisingly it wasn't the nurse who carried out the procedure. It was t...

    Well it's now been a week since I last wrote something but here I am back again.  I've went and bought a headset for the PC and I'm sitting here looking like Cher while dictating this week's blog entry.  It's not particularly fast being han...
  • Doctor In The House
    on Jul 17, 2010
    I've kind of lost track with where I am with the blog just now and well with life in general to be honest. The last thing I wrote about was not wanting to see any doctors again. My wife phoned the shrink's office to cancel my appointment and told the...

    on Jun 18, 2010
    Wow! Blogger have launched new templates, so instead of writing I have spent the past wee while browsing and editing the layout of this new fangled thingy. I wish it would let me install my own image rather than it's own templates. Although the pictu...
  • Get Off My Cloud
    on May 31, 2010
    Today I finished recording my new album but I'm not happy with the mixes so am gonna go back mix all the tracks from scratch. That should keep me busy for a while. I'm also hoping to get a guitar on Ebay I'm bidding on. I also wish folks would leave...
  • Five Years
    on May 24, 2010
    It's all been a bit wacky since the last post. I was full of life and full of fun but got a bit overexcited. I reverted to dropping Largactil (Chlorpromazine/Thorazine) to calm down and get a handle on things. Unfortunately the old Largactil gives me...
  • Waking Up
    on May 5, 2010
    Last night I dreamed a nurse told me about the new DSM codes for bipolar disorder. She explained there would now simply be two possible diagnoses; "Bipolar Psychiatry" and "Bipolar Second Generation". "Which shall I fall under?", "Bipolar Second Gene...

    on Apr 28, 2010
    Well I have been busy. Happy and busy. Busy reorganising my wee studio and setting up my new monitors. As well as recording tracks for my next album I am also engineering and mastering a CD for a friend. I'm in the process of re-releasing an old CD o...

  • Uptight (Everything's Alright)
    on Apr 13, 2010
    Everything is good. I am recording new stuff. I am buying new active monitors (... £180... which I can't really afford). It's all good!My pal has brought me new acoustic panels for the studio. I have no idea if he wants money for them or if they are...
  • Holiday Rap
    on Apr 2, 2010
    Just back from a scorching week in Lanzarote. Got badly burned the first day (don't know if my meds were a factor?). After this I covered what was left of my skin in Factor 50 on a daily basis. Just wallowed about in the sun, reading and eating and d...
  • Paper Roses
    on Mar 21, 2010
    I'm incredibly busy recording music at the moment. Frantically trying to get stuff done before we go on holiday. Instead of wasting time writing here I thought I'd throw in a comment I've just posted on the delightful Abysmal Musings...."Overconfiden...

  • I belong to Glasgow
    on Mar 8, 2010 in family brother glasgow
    It's been a pretty drab week. I phoned in "sick" for the radio show. Didn't feel like doing much. Despite this I arranged to meet my brother on Friday. We wandered around Glasgow. Drove round the squalid housing scheme where we were brought up. Went...
  • Old Man
    on Mar 2, 2010 in doctor dvla bloods medical
    Old man? Although I expected an old man I did not expect to come face to face with Methuselah. It was like meeting a ten year old Benjamin Button.I had been dreading this day for quite a while. The alarm went off at 7am, an abrupt change from my usua...
  • The Bug
    on Mar 1, 2010
    On Thursday afternoon we got a new memory foam mattress from Argos. Although it was all sealed inside a big plastic bag, I noticed it had a black mark on the underside. We swithered about whether we should return it but hell, we would never see the u...
  • DriveDrive. Or more to the point, the lack of it. I'm in one of those phases of overpowering inertia. All I want to do is nothing, just sit and do nothing. I don't feel up or down, not that I really have had any sense of mood since my transformation from...
