Video games v. parents

September 15, 2020 § Leave a comment

Friends are so important in life, aren’t they? And with the pandemic on, our son gets to see his friends only on a screen. So no physical interaction, no games like football or basketball or cricket, not even carrom. They end up playing Brawl Stars with each other all day, especially on weekends. And when us parents try to restrict video game time, we are instant villains.

“When I become a famous gamer, none of my money is going to you guys, because you never believed in me,” said our near-12-year old to me today.

It’s day 11 since I stopped the evening dose of Trinicalm Plus (Trifluoperazine and some other stuff) that I take for my anxiety and depression. The withdrawal symptoms have eased today. My head didn’t hurt like yesterday, and I don’t feel that sense of unease and craving for the drug. The plan is to complete two weeks without the evening dose and they stop the morning dose as well. I’m on a small dose of Clonazepam as well. Hope to taper that off too, at some point in the future.
