No MORE THALIDOMIDE for Jude - March 21 2012

Slept here at home continuously because that's all my mind is up to - SLEEPING - I CANNOT THINK and I am unstable on my feet. Then, all day long, I lay on the sofa and slept some more. I cannot do the computer, send an email or anything. I AM NOT TAKING Thalidomide ANYMORE and did not take any tonight.

My guts are raw, but I am able to eat and even feel a little better after I eat.


  1. I found that when I first took Thalidomide I felt drowsy practically straight away but this has worn off somewhat - I do still get drowsy but it takes longer. I don't feel as energetic as usual though and have found that if I take it earlier in the evening (currently trying 7.30 pm) it doesn't affect me as much the following day. Not perfect but it's working for me at the moment. Warm wishes. :D

  2. Thank you for your comment regarding Thalidomide side effects. I've decided it just isn't worth it to me. With my body giving out, I'm not willing to give up my mind too. Hope all is well with you. jm
