New favorite song: Think of You
I have been listening to this song since last night, non-stop. I cannot wait till I get paid next week so I can buy the album. Chris Young is one of my favorite artists. I am really surprised this song isn’t on the radio as it has over 13 million views.
I watched my niece for a little bit until her other grandmother came and got her. Afterwards, I went to the grocery store to get some half and half. I so needed a cup of coffee. Luckily, I time it right with the buses so I didn’t have to wait too long. It was really hot out and I was sweating by the time I came home. I made the coffee and then some breakfast. I figure I would have something to eat as I really haven’t had breakfast all week. I have been too sleepy to make it.
Last night I gave the run down of my illness for the past seven months. I sent it to my psychiatrist and will send it to my therapist next week. I then got the worst spasms in my legs and arms I ever felt. I swear every muscle group went spastic on me. It was awful. I took another Ativan and it didn’t help. Then I thought I was withdrawing from my pain medicine so I took a pill and things finally settled down. I didn’t take any pain pills the entire day because I wasn’t in significant pain. I won’t be doing that again.
I had felt so awful I thought about paging my pdoc to see if she had any ideas on how to stop the spasticity. But it was late (around midnight) and I was too afraid she might have me go to the ER or something. If taking my pain meds didn’t work, I would have called her. It was kind of urgent that I speak to her but thankfully, things settled down and I fell asleep. I did have a good sleep as I didn’t wake up till around 0900. I checked on my niece to make sure she was dressed and ready to see her grandmother. She said she washed up and brushed her teeth. So I am going on her word that those things were done.
I need to take a shower today but I think I will take it this evening. I haven’t really taken one all week. I finally called PT and have an appointment on the 12 of Aug. I need to get a new prescription because the one they faxed over is “old”. I don’t understand how they can get old. It was written a month ago so how can it be old? Just wasting paper.
Coffee really gave me energy. Maybe I can tackle the hamper I have been meaning to clean out. I might change my sheets. That will take some energy. Last time I changed them, it nearly threw my back out. I will take it easy though. I need to wash my comforter, too.
