A sleepy morning…
Today was like any other Wednesday, where I head towards my office to work… But I woke up late as usual and had to rush to work. The jam on the road always starts at 7:30 am, and I only left my home at 8:10 am…
This morning I had a very difficult time waking up, due to 2 main reasons
- Seroquel 200 mg doing its trick — side effect, being extreme drowsiness. Actually the drowsiness effect diminished as I have taken it for 3 months approx.
- I slept really late, with my iPad beside me.. How dangerous isn’t it?
I closed my eyes.
During my drive to work, I had my mum sitting beside me in the passenger seat because I am driving her car. I was incredibly tired… I closed my eyes several times during the office hour jam.
I freaked out.. as I heard a sudden bang.. As I gain consciousness, I realised I knocked onto the vehicle in front of me, it was an Avanza. I didn’t know what to do. All I know was I’ve just dozed off and released the brake.
I asked my mum “What to do? Oh my God!!” She told me to just drive straight, I didn’t understand what she meant by that as I have just knocked onto a big car (MPV). I was a small tiny Suzuki Alto…
Then, it was not long before the driver of the car in front came down to have a look at her car. I was afraid because I was still on probationary driving license. If she decides to report me, then I may get demerit(s).
Luckily and Thank God that her MPV did not have any dents / scratches. It was just a minor hit. My mum went down and apologise on my behalf.
I don’t know what’s wrong with Seroquel’s action.. Why does it make people so tired and drowsy??? There was once where I almost faint in my room because I couldn’t walk straight.. I had difficulty opening my eyes. lol.. haha
It’s time to drop all that
Well, now that I have reached my office safely, with mum’s assistance (Btw, I didn’t tell her the drowsiness and fatigue were side effects of the medication). I guess I need to drop all that had happened and focus on my work
