New Meds…

I’m on new pills for my chronic Fibromyalgia pain. It’s a very small dose of “Anti-Psychotic” drug. I’m on so low a dose as to not be for a brain issue, but this drug will help my muscles relax as they just don’t want to for long, and I’d just have pop muscle relaxers like candy.

I really hate starting a new drug. It just stinks big time. Today I was dopey and had a case of the dead stares. I had a heck of a time keeping my eyes open, today. Plus, I was so drowsy when I woke up, I not only had to take my “Wake me up” pill I also said a little prayer before driving so that I don’t kill someone on the way.

It stinks… but I’m not in much pain today. If the sucker works, I’ll figure out a way to live with the side effects. Most of the time, the side effects go away for me. So, I just have to tuff it out for another week. I’ll be ok.

I’m so glad that the Election is over and we’ve got a new President-Elect. I gotta say, by the time we were done, I didn’t care who won. I was tire of the adds. Locally, the adds were really bad, with lots of mud slinging.

I have an appointment with my nurse practitioner tomorrow. I need to get her up to speed on the Fibromyalgia thing and my medicines and make sure I’m human. I’ve got to keep an eye on my blood pressure so that I don’t have problems there. I have problems with both pressure and heart rate.

Nonetheless… I should be much better about the DR than I am. Women are typically like this and I am no exception. I”m not mortally wounded, I don’t need to go to a DR.

Catch you later, alligators! I got a catalog to browse… I saved the real goodies for last!

    Hey Fizz, I hope you feel better soon. Those side effects can be awful sometimes, almost makes you want to stop taking the meds just to get rid of them. Hopefully, things will level out in a few days and you’ll feel a lot better.
     
    Have a good weekend. See you around soon.
