Trial and Error

I start back on a pill tomorrow that landed me in the hospital.

Mind you, it is being dosed very, very small.

I'm not sure how I feel about this.

But I also know that I am willing to do anything to combat this crippling pain and physical and mental fatigue.

Soooooo...guinea pig I will be, now that the doc thinks I have narcolepsy! (Haha, I rhyme!)

...................................................................................

As for today, I'm laying here with every muscle hurting and my jaw seized up with TMJ from a rather unpleasant visit to the dentist this morning.

I despise going to the dentist worse than anything in life. Even more than vomiting and spiders, it's that serious (although not more than the idea of vomiting spiders - which scares me into a state of panic haha).

The event is over now.  Apparently, I have awesome teeth but have been grinding them to smithereens.  Also, my gums in parts are receding and allowing for easily touched nerves.  Mmmm.

My stomach still isn't holding food.  Now it's time to bring in the meal-replacement shake joys!

xoxo,
Annie

Hey love bug... I'm in your corner always.
always.
always.

I'm hoping your meds work this time, that your TMJ feels better, and that your world turns into cotton candy and pixie sticks.

All these meds have to be driving you crazy. I just wish they would figure out what works for you and what doesn't! Stay happy!

I'm trying to get the picture of a grown woman gripping the arms of the dental chair while clenching her teeth shut saying "one step closer and I'm going to throw these freeking pills down your throat that I don't want to take but must"

Good to hear you survived.

I don't know how you do it, Annie. All those medications and all the constant changes.

You are amazing!
