Xyrem and recovery (continued)

I wanted to add a few words to my last entry about Xyrem. First of all, the other drug cocktail apparently treated my more florid positive symptoms, but according to my twin, the psychiatrist, the Xyrem treated the negative ones, made me seem normal: all the things I could do truly did knit together. She didn't know I was on it, but when I appeared at her door after being on it a while she opened the door, took one look at me, stepped back, and said, "Oh. My. God." Then she rcovered a bit and said, "You look wonderful, normal." She says I looked her square in the eye, was wearing something colorful for the first time in decades, had curled my hair and was even wearing make-up like I actually cared how I looked, and she couldn't believe it. She said my walk was almost normal, that I was less awkward in my body and so forth. She felt like she had her twin back. So that's really what Xyrem did for my SZ.
