Sorry to hear you can't sleep, there's nothing worse. Though I can send you a pile of ironing...
I started on Citalopram last year and I've had tinnitus since then, though when I sleep ok it doesn't trouble me too much - I hadn't thought that stress and fatigue could make it worse, that would explain why I had it so much a few months ago. I usually get it most in my left ear at night. When I mentioned it to the psychiatrist while I was in hospital last year she said I should get my ears checked out by an audiologist. Makes you wonder what's the point of being asked if you have any side effects!
I still haven't heard my eye scan results - unusual as they usually take about a week. I'm going to pop in to the surgery tomorrow and see if they've been advised. If not I'll ring the hospital that runs the screening programme.
I have got a start date for my school cleaning job, though, 5th September. I've got an induction on the 4th. It'll be great to come off ESA, I hate the unpredictability of the benefits system. Once I've settled in the job I'm going to look for a couple more hours work - probably admin - and claim tax credits, all being well.
I haven't done much in the garden, just a bit of weeding the other day. My son came home last weekend and bought me some beautiful, huge artificial dahlias and a white rose. They look gorgeous - yellow, white & red. I haven't seen any bamboo anywhere, it must be out of season.
I don't have a TV but do listen to Gardeners' Question Time on Radio 4. I like Alan Titchmarsh - he's quite a good fiction writer, very funny. I used to like watching Gardeners' World.
Well, I'd better go start the weekly blitz - washing, vaccing, dusting ... though I'll try to avoid looking at the heap of ironing
Take care & hug back,
