Seriously? I'm not sure what life is up to.
It's got a sense of humor -that's for sure.
It's been a summer of menopause, poison ivy, reactions from medications, withdrawal symptoms from Effexor, and urinary tract infections.
Now - in the last couple of days:
I was chasing a baby turkey, and found myself behind the garage where things are piled up a bit, and the grass is grown over and *boom* I stepped and immediately felt a spike going into my right foot instep.
A screw was in a board, I stepped on it, and ended up at Express care getting a tetanus shot.
My left arm is bruised and so sore I can barely move it from the shot.
I limped all weekend.
While I was there I found out my blood pressure was high - thanks to a side effect of Effexor.
I immediately came home and decided to wean off again - slowly.
I must get free of this!
Today - I finally stopped limping, but felt flu like symptoms from weaning off of Effexor, and nearly passed out in Yoga class. No matter how slow I wean, it's hellacious.
I did my cleaning job, and slipped - cleaning the shower and fell HARD on to my right side.
I can barely move at the moment.
I think I fractured the middle toe on my right foot.
Tomorrow morning I'm committing myself - for my own safety.
I'm going to find an old asylum where they still do things like:
It can't hurt at this point.
Wheel me out in the sunshine for an hour a day.
Not quite sure what they are doing here - but I'm thinking if I were tied down in a tub with a nurse watching me - I couldn't hurt myself any further.
I told Glenco tonight that I'm in 'survival mode'.
I'm not expecting anything out of myself except the bare minimum.
Oh - and Lifestyle 180 (formerly known as BootCamp) starts tomorrow.
I may not survive it!
But ya know what?
I'm still smiling.
