I can have quite the silver tongue. I’ve talked my way out of muggings, arrests, arguments etc. The art of communique and semantics are more complex than rocket science; not just delivering ideas – rather, presenting the right stimuli to achieve the desired results. Which brings me to the problem I have.
For 10 years I lied and manipulated my significant other. Nothing terrible or heinous, just a vast patchwork of small to complex lies and omissions in order to maintain optimal happiness for my partner. Note: For my partner, not for the relationship, let alone me. The commitment to my fabrications has fractured my personality, destroyed my self worth, and turned me into a slave within my own mental prison.
Then one day I quit telling her what she wanted to hear – specifically during an argument over wanting to call her back because I dont like using the phone while driving. I avoided, what would have been, a very fatal accident. I was very shaken. I could barely talk, I couldn’t blink, I couldn’t move. When she still refused to give me a breathe – I went off on her. I finally broke free of my cell. I was yelling so loud that everything in my vision was the color purple or blue.
Ever since that night, I quit telling her what she wants to hear. But when I do; I get a terrible stutter. Just this morning it took me about an hour to describe my error in budgeting which led to my phonebill being left out.
For awhile, I thought I had a stroke that night I described. The stutter will only happen when I have to tell her something that I know will upset her though. I couldn’t figure out this new depth of my insanity until reading this article.
There are no well controlled studies with haloperidol in pregnant women. There are reports, however, of cases of limb malformations observed following maternal use of haloperidol along with other drugs which have suspected teratogenic potential during the first trimester of pregnancy. Causal relationships were not established in these cases. Since such experience does not exclude the possibility of fetal damage due to haloperidol, this drug should be used during pregnancy or in women likely to become pregnant only if the benefit clearly justifies a potential risk to the fetus. Infants should not be nursed during drug treatment.
The dose of Haloperidol Decanoate Injection, 50 mg per mL or Haloperidol Decanoate Injection, 100 mg per mL should be expressed in terms of its haloperidol content. The starting dose of haloperidol decanoate should be based on the patient's age, clinical history, physical condition, and response to previous antipsychotic therapy. The preferred approach to determining the minimum effective dose is to begin with lower initial doses and to adjust the dose upward as needed. For patients previously maintained on low doses of antipsychotics (. up to the equivalent of 10 mg/day oral haloperidol), it is recommended that the initial dose of haloperidol decanoate be 10 to 15 times the previous daily dose in oral haloperidol equivalents; limited clinical experience suggests that lower initial doses may be adequate.
