Sunday blog 9 Sept 18
I woke up around 2 in pain. My damn genitals felt like they were being crushed. No idea if they were or not. There was nothing there but OMG the pain when I touched myself was unreal. It took a few hours to settle down. When I woke up to take my meds, I just tried to go back to sleep. I would have slept through but my mother came up the stairs and she was laboring to breathe. I couldn’t relax because I was waiting for the thump of her falling. It never happened, thank god. I knew she didn’t use her inhaler like she is supposed to. She doesn’t think she needs it. Yes, cause doctors prescribe things we don’t need all the time. I am so pissed at her it isn’t funny. I really want to go with her to her doc’s so he can explain why she needs this inhaler because I obviously don’t know what I am talking about.
I got up an hour so later. I couldn’t sleep but I felt like absolute crap. I had no energy. I needed a shower and I had to go to the pharmacy to fill my meds. It was fricken cold so wasn’t looking forward to the shower as there is no heat. The heating vent doesn’t work, well it will for about 5 minutes and then go off, permanently. I think my brother in law put it in wrong or it is the wrong one for the power source. He didn’t replace the whole unit, just the heating part. I have no idea how much it will cost to replace the whole thing. I just know in the winter it sucks taking a shower because it is nice to be under hot water than freeze your ass off when you open the curtain!
I took a shower but it drained me further. I didn’t want to do a damn thing. I wanted coffee, but I didn’t want to make it. I got dressed and went to the store. My mother wanted something so I went to the pharmacy first. There was someone new there. Once I had dropped them off I went to get my mother’s things. Then I waited at the pharmacy. The pharmacist had a question for me, which I thought was dumb. She asked if I filled this on the 31st. I said I filled the immediate release. This was the extended release. She said it was the same med and I said yes but different forms. She said okay. This is starting to piss me off. It clearly states what the medication is so I don’t understand why I am questioned about it. I know what medication I am getting. I use the same pharmacy every time so they know when I fill it, etc. Just fill the damn thing! It isn’t hard, you have the information in front of you! Why do you have to question me about it like I don’t know what I am getting???
I get home and put my meds on my bed. I put my slippers on and went downstairs to make some coffee. I decided to make it at my sister’s because I wasn’t messing with a French press. I drank my coffee and I was just itching to bake something even though I felt like crap. I drank most of my coffee and then decided to make the cake that I bought about two months ago but was too hot to make because of the weather. I got the stuff and made it. I needed my mother’s help to spread it evenly then I put it in the oven. It took longer to cook because my oven sucks. My mother wanted dinner so I made that. I made a mess. The gravy had so much meat that it was all stuck together, even though I put it through a few defroster cycles. I just decided to put it in a pan. That helped but while I was trying to break up the meat, I caused a huge splash and gravy went all over the place. UGH. It even went on the wall behind the stove. I was so fricken tired the last thing I wanted to do was clean a wall. I did after dinner. I cleaned the counter too so my mother didn’t have to. She washed the pans and stuff. I wasn’t that hungry so ate half of what I put in the bowl. My sister came up with my baby cousin. She was kind of cranky because a tooth was coming in. Poor thing. After everything was cleaned up, I went upstairs.
I decided to fill my box for the week so went through the bag that I got from the pharmacy. I had a small bottle and wondered what it was. It was my Trileptal. It usually comes in a bigger bottle because the pills are big. I counted them out and instead of 60 pills, I got 30. Now I need to go back to the pharmacy to get the right amount of pills. I put in a complaint to the pharmacy on Twitter and will with the manager in the morning as they are closed now. I can’t believed they goofed! I made sure I had the right number of my pain meds. Just another hassle I got to deal with. Sucks.
