Who was concerned about the severity of Nick’s chorea; he’s on pretty much the highest doses he can be of the Sulpiride and Olanzapine and he’s still unable to keep still, head nodding, arms jerking and legs kicking out like a mule. The specialist decided to try a different medication and has prescribed Tetrabenzine – not instead of, but in addition to all the other tablets he’s taking.
On Wednesday I managed to get the TV to come on but could only get one channel - of all things, Parliament Live. It was the night of the big Brexit vote of confidence / no confidence in the Prime Minister. She'd scraped through and most people had left the building, so there wasn’t much to see. The red seats were empty, just four or five stragglers slumped on the benches in a similar attitude of apathetic despair to Nick, or maybe just dozing.
Not just the thought of a practical solution. It felt like a miracle just to have someone reach out at the point when I felt most alone and unable to put one foot in front of the other or see straight.
