I need hugs


I hate this. I have schizoaffective disorder and my doctor has me on a new antipsychotic and it's giving me bad side effects. I have no energy, I keep getting these weird feelings like mild electric shocks when I try to move and sometimes when I'm holding still, I'm shaky all over, and I just generally feel like shit.

I called her to tell her about the side effect problems and she told me to take half a tablet and see if that helps, and if that doesn't help, to quit taking it altogether. She won't change the med without me coming in for an appointment, but I can't come in for an appointment until I pay for the last two appointments, and I don't have the money to pay for the last two appointments.

I need a hug.
