Sick and tired almost no more!

For the past several years I have been fighting a general ailment that ranges from anything from headaches and insomnia to severe belly aches and nausea. It’s been tolerable up until the past three weeks. I’ve got all four things going on at full speed. This Thanksgiving I didn’t stuff myself silly because I just didn’t have the energy or the heart to make myself feel even more sick. I broke down and went to the doc today.

The doc thinks she has a diagnosis, which makes sense, but wants to send me out for more tests first. However, she gave me a huge supply of xanax (my favorite!) which will help calm my nerves and help me sleep at night. I told her about my addiction to ambien and pain pills and she feels that since I know I get addicted and admit to it that she can trust me with the xanax. I’m just glad that I might be getting some sleep tonight.

Oh, my illness? Yeah, it’s kinda embarrassing. Especially out in public. The test? Just guess. I’m literally happy about this now though. I know what it is and I know there can be a way to control it. I don’t have to stay home or have to live on a diet of soup and crackers forever (which totally still make me sick).

t’s funny that I’ve been trying to cut down the number of prescription drugs I have to use daily. As of today I have three more! Oh well. C’est la vie!
