Birthing bag clozapine Mental health

Today is the day, clozapine day 1.

So today is the day it’s coming up to 8am and I’m awake after a broken night sleep.

Honestly, I’m terrified. I think I’m starting on 12.5mg, and quetiapine reduced to 950mg and diazepam to 2mg.

I’m at the local mental health hospital 9:30 to I think 4:30. It’s going to be a long day with hourly checks, like blood pressure. Not sure what else.

I’m going to get up and ready, I will try to keep an up to-date daily blog post on clozapine and how it’s going.

Please keep me safe, Rosie xxx

Had an exhausting day.

Got up and didn’t weigh myself, but since then weighed myself with clothes and trainers on and I weighed what I did the other day, so in my head that means I’ve lost weight. Will weigh myself tomorrow morning and update. I’ve got 20lbs to loose till I get to my goal weight. Not too far off now, really need to put the extra effort in. 

I did a bit of cleaning and tidying. And spent time brushing the cats, I try and do it every week and they love it. Bless them. Had a move around in the front room and it looks better now. Definitely cleaner. 

Received a parcel and really pleased with it, it’s for my sister who’s about to give birth it’s a bag with some essentials in for the birth, hope she likes it, haven’t managed to give it her yet. Also done a list of everything she could need, hopefully it helps. 

Also harmed again. And actually got a feeling from it this time, I feel satisfied with what I’ve done. 

I tried to tip my vodka down the sink but I couldn’t. So it’s still in my cupboard but going to try not to drink it. 

Done a fair bit of exercise, and toning. I really want to start to love my body. Found a dress I want for my goal weight. 

Looking forward to bed, I’m looking forward to sleep. 

Hope you’ve all had a lovely day. XxX

I know off my usual topics… what goes in a maternity bag for giving birth? 

I don’t really know what is needed in a bag to take in to hospital when you go in to labour. I’ve seen lots of on line pages, but want your opinion… what is a definite need? And what will be in the way? 

I’m not pregnant myself but I’m doing this for my sister, who is due in 35 days but has not packed a bag. So I’m helping her out. 

Thanks in advance. Happy for you to email me on

Best wishes. XxX
