Rather than writing several of you an email I think that i will do it this way!! I know that some have been wondering about me.
I was writing an email to lazy daisy and what happens but the phone rings and she is on the other end!! HM!!
I went back to my "listening doctor" today!! She is not really a doctor but a PA...in my opinion she SHOULD be a doctor!! She is caring and boy do I need caring right now...in the worst way!!
We talked and I told her about all that is going on with me since I quit that drug..Cymbalta..cold turkey. It has been almost a month now and each and every day gets worse than the day before.
She told me that my chemical makeup is such that my brain and my body just cannot handle any time it is altered or in this case imbalanced!! So this is me..yours truly..a crying mess right now.
She decided to take blood/urine tests which I think are a good thing..just to rule out anything else that might have CREPT in there. She is going to call me herself tomorrow to see what they showed..lets hope nothing!!
Now I am on Zanex which is supposed to take the edge off...Oh if something just would. I take that 3 times a day!! i am trying to work with all of this and believe me...I am trying!!
My asst. mgr. called me just a bit ago to see what the doctor said. She is being very kind and caring. We are trying to work out this weeks schedule where she can come in a relieve me and then i can come home. Next week after Tuesday i have a long stretch off...I don't return until May 13th!! I have also put in some time so that i can be here when my friends from Virginia come for a visit. Yeah Daisy!!
IF...and I mean IF I am not better by this Monday then I have to call back in and we will start on a new process. Please pray that I get better. I do not want to do this...The next step would be to put me BACK on Cymbalta and then I would have to go to a specialist to (in time) wean me off. I do not WANT to have to go this route. I do not want that drug ever again!!
ONE DAY A TIME!! That is what i am trying to do....well am off to Zanex land now!!
Flip Flop..not doing much flipping or flopping for that matter!!
