Good morning. Wowsie! I just read over my post from yesterday. Goodness, what a terrible post! The problem is my new meds, which of course, I won't be taking any more of. A couple years ago, the insurance company decided to stop covering my medicine for neck spasms. So, my doctor had to prescribe a new med. I took this for a while, but I ran out of it quite some time ago.
My doctor called in a new refill for me a few days ago. Unfortunately, the insurance company has decided not to cover this med any longer either. So, someone at the doctor's office called in another new med for me.
Yesterday morning I took one of the new pills right about the time I sat down to post on my blog. I guess from reading the post, you can see how quickly I had a bad reaction to this new med. Let me tell you it was really scary. I was in and out of reality, mostly out of, and I had no control over my body. Everything was fuzzy and drifting somewhere, and I could not stop it.
This lasted for hours. It was after 1:30 p.m. before I started to come out of this, and could actually walk again. It was evening before I actually started to feel like myself again. The sad part is that when you live alone and everyone you know is away at work, there is no one to help you when something like this happens.
I think the insurance companies should be ashamed of themselves for playing around and meddling with people's medications like this. The sad part is that had I not come out of this nasty bad medicine "trip," the insurance company would not even be held responsible. The government and big business has absolutely too much control over our lives with no consequences for their bad decisions.
Sad to say, I do not have a new quick page for you . I will work on them later today, and I promise to make extras to make up for it. I just haven't been up to spending much time on the computer lately. When I hold my head and neck in the same position (like sitting at the computer), I start having the spasms so I just lay low.
Poor little Pogo has been so busy staying at my side lately, that he hasn't been eating all his meals. Last evening, DIL Janet stopped at McDonalds and picked up supper, (at my request) along with a double hamburger for Pogo. He did eat some of it, but not much. Later, after midnight, he got the hungries and ate the rest of his hamburger, along with anything else I had in the fridge that looked good to him. Eventually his tummy got full up and he was able to fall asleep.
A couple days ago, I was able to get a few gifts wrapped and ready for mailing. Hopefully, today I can get some more of this done. I am so far behind it is not funny. Santa Claus is doing pretty good though. A long box was delivered here with a note from Santa attached asking me to put it under our tree for Pogo. Woo Hoo! I wonder what it is???
I dug a couple photos out of my archives to share today. These are things that I miss from my working days. The first photo is a mama cardinal looking for food on a early winter morning.
The second photo shows the mist rising over a cemetery as the sun is rising on my way home for work one morning.
Well, now it's time for me to get busy and try to accomplish a few things around here today. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
