After 8 months my sorry ass is keeping a very low profile – all down to that fantastic female doctor, Berit, at Lund’s University Hospital – that prescribed Lyrica to me.
It didn’t work at once, but then she increased the morning pill to two and MAGIC! I was a bit worried about the medicine because it mainly to treat epilepsy and shingles, but she promised me that the strength on my daily intake is so small and the medicine in itself isn’t addictive. Haven’t taken any lucky pills for over a month now.
There is no words to describe the “living hell” I been in for nearly 8 months. But there is always a prize to pay. Lyrica creates more fluid in my body and I already have problems from my cancer operation with lymph, that I wear support tights against, but they don’t help anymore. Some mornings my feet is nearly half a size bigger and I have big feet (EU8) to start with.
So it’s not good for me to sit by the PC with the legs down most of the day, but also I have to take medicine for that. It’s a bad circle, this with effects of medicine.
I have been so spoiled through my whole life, have never had to take any medicine what so ever. Hardly taken an aspirin for headache. This with have to take pills 2 times per day doesn’t feel that great, but out of two evil – I stick to the pills.
So I’m back in the blogging wheel again – and I have decided to have system, because I can’t spend hours by the computer again every day, but still to be able to visit your world too, I have done a schedule, where I will visit once per week and … read what you have posted during the week. Some of you post many posts per day – and I will try to read so many as possible.
As my friend Dia@happyface313 wrote in one of her posts not long ago – to read what you have posted is like to read a daily chic magazine, just love that sentence.
In other words – it’s great to be back!
“Look back, and smile on perils past.”
