A view from my side.
Yes. As the sign says, “Better Living Through Chemistry.” A quick trip to the doctor’s office and I had prescriptions in hand. Gobbling down my meds I waited for them to take effect. Slowly I started to feel better. I had taken the rest of that day off and spent it as still as possible. The next morning I woke up without the room spinning, at least not too terribly much. I took another dose and went to work. Slowly throughout the day I kept improving. I hydrated and ate some fruit here and there and kept feeling stronger. When I got home, I sat down to watch the news, figuring I’d find out what was going on in the world. The next thing I knew, it was 11:50 p.m. and I was awakened by Kid#3 coming home from work. I had fallen asleep in my chair.
That was a 6.5 hour nap! I wondered if I’d be able to go back to sleep and sat up with Kid#3 chatting for a while. I moved into my room, took another dose of meds and promptly fell asleep again. I had no problem waking up this morning at my usual time. I had no problem with balance, dizziness, or nausea. I had no problems whatsoever that I could feel. (Of course, I’m sure Ex#3 would dispute that. LOL) Anyway, off to work I went, none the worse for wear.
Today was also Kid#4‘s last day of Kindergarten. So I took the afternoon off and spent it with her. She’s a darling little girl, about to turn 6. I don’t see her as much as I’d like, but take her when I can get her. I try not to comment too much about the Ex’s, but #3 does figure daily in my life. She’s a bit of a control freak, so we didn’t mesh too terribly well. Be all that as it may, Kid#4 and I had some fun today. We built forts, had grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch, slammed down some apple juice and munched on some chips, peanuts and a few M&M’s. Spending the day with her was the perfect topper to help me feel better.
And today…I feel Much Better.
