Rx ordeal

I had my annual doc’s appointment this past week.  As I expected, my prescriptions changed.  It’s been very hard adjusting to the new medications.  VERY hard.  Oh, and the doc wants to change my annual appointments to every-six-months appointments.  Yippee.

I sadly cancelled planned outings with friends and spent most of the balance of the week in bed.  I am slowly beginning to feel better.  I have to be better by Monday.  There is a marathon of campus visits to complete Monday followed by four days of training in Austin beginning early Tuesday morning.  I have no more time built into my schedule to continue to let my body adjust.

I can’t say it enough: This go-round has been hard for me.

Is it because I’m older than the last time I had to go through this?  Is it the medications themselves?  I don’t know.

All I know is this is hard.  Both emotionally & physically.

I told Hub.

He said it’s all in my mind.

Ouch.

I headed off to bed and told him later how much his comment hurt.  He apologized saying all he meant is maybe by knowing about the side effects of the medications I was expecting to be sick for a few days.  I explained that I never expect to be sick and that these past several days have absolutely sucked the life right out of me.

And I went back to sleep.

I’ve slept a lot this week.  Lord knows my body needs it.

Here’s hoping tomorrow is a better day.
