Feeling better, I'm not taking so many pills as I had been.
When the right side gets too sore I'll take an Advil, depending on how bad it is, I may take two, but that's only 400mg total. The prescription pills were 800mg each.
I was still having problems sleeping, after waking up every hour for weeks having to pee (which i don't understand, I wasn't drinking or eating much at all, have no idea where the fluid was coming from unless osmosis from the nasty humid cloudy weather we'd been having). I bought some Advil PM, thinking that was keep the pain at bay during the night as well as help me sleep. It didn't. I'd sleep for a couple of hours, then wake up and not be able to get back to sleep. Then I'd take a melatonin. It would work for a couple of hours, but once I woke up sleep was hard to find.
So, I pushed the Advil PM to the side and just took a regular Advil along with an OTC sleep aid from Kirkland (CostCo brand). Success! I figure I'll do this for a few nights trying to get my sleep schedule back on track.
We actually went to a movie yesterday morning, we really wanted to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 before it left the theaters. I was disappointed that it's no longer in 3D, but them's the breaks. We might go see the new Pirates this week one afternoon. It's supposed to be hot. The first 3D showings are in the afternoon, none in the morning. And if it's hot, Brian would be okay with that, I think, since he only has fans in his shop.
We're taking DaNiece to the vet tomorrow, she's not doing well. She's the one with thyroid problems. She's been on meds for years and I've never taken her in for a recheck. Well, the past few months she seems to be going downhill. She cries a lot and eats a lot, but has diarrhea. Don't know if that's the medication she's on or what. A full blood panel is in order to find out what's going on and how we can help make her more comfortable.
I'm really looking forward to not hurting. There's so much that needs to be done. I need to reweed the part of the garden where I planted the pepper plants. I'm pretty sure the original two sets of seeds washed away and now all that's there are weeds. I ordered more seeds from Amazon, now I need to plant them. And since it's supposed to finally start warming up, this would be the ideal time.
Stupid back. I have to be cautious what I do because I want to get better. And I found out last month that just because I feel better, doesn't mean I can do whatever I want. I tried that and two days later it was so bad I couldn't stand it.
Getting old ain't for sissies.
