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.
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.
