I’m still new at this…

Want to know what’s awesome? Thinking that you are feeling GREAT and that you aren’t having any side effects to your new medications, and then realizing that YES, in fact, YOU ARE. And these new symptoms are completely and TOTALLY related to a condition for which you are already being treated.

Oh yeah, that’s good stuff right there.

Suffice it to say, I have been researching options for treating my side effects.

This morning is when I decided that I had become irritable.

Okay, more like downright peeved.

And the worst of it is, you KNOW that this isn’t YOU, and this isn’t how you would typically respond to whatever, but you just can’t help it. Really, it’s an amazing feeling that I don’t recommend to anyone.

And can we please discuss mouth sores? Because they make eating, breathing, and talking SUPER fun. #blech.

And the sucky thing is I haven’t been on the medication long enough to even know if it’s WORKING. Because my arms and legs still go numb, I’m still super shaky, and can’t remember anything. Did I tell you that I fell down in the library on Saturday? Because I did.  Thank goodness nobody saw me. This numb leg thing is KILLING me. (I sound dramatic. NOT a side effect.)

  At any rate, I’m waiting for my doctor to call me back, because that’s pretty much what I do these days.
