Well three up and three down I guess. My Darvon / darvacet have been taken off the market. Since finding that out I’ve been trying to find a replacement. I’ve tried Tramadol which made me feel like my head was going to explode; vicaden which did nothing; and finally percacet which made me itch everywhere, having ringing in my ears and gave me chest pains.
Needless to say these are all going on the list of don’t bother taking again. Percacet in particular will be avoided. The bad thing aside from the reaction is that I asked the doctor to just give me like five pills because really after one dose I’ll know whether I can take it or not. He didn’t he gave me a full prescription. So now I have three bottles of drugs I can’t take. I have no idea what to do with these drugs as we aren’t supposed to flush them anymore. I guess I’ll call the pharmacy to see what they say.
It is back to the drawing board for me and pain management. Hopefully we can find something that works and doesn’t give me awful side affects…
I’m halfway through my weekend today. Yesterday I ran errands with my daughter. It was a normal pay week Saturday with grocery shopping and other errands.
Visited the Doc on Thursday and have another bottle of pain killers. I’ll see how well they work. I’m not holding my breath though. I’ve not taken any yet because we’ve been so busy.
Yesterday afternoon a friend came over and we crafted and chatted. It was such a wonderful afternoon. We relaxed and talked. Yes some crafting got done. We laughed and had silly conversation and also delved into some more serious stuff to. It is always a pleasure to have those conversations with people who are willing to listen and discuss with an open mind. It makes you think to hear others beliefs – at least it does for me – and to express your own because you have to put into words some esoteric concepts.
Today I’m starting the tax season by helping Vicki with her taxes. After we are done with her taxes then I’ll be working on writing things. I have a chapter laid out in my head – now I just have to get it down on paper (per se it will really be in the computer but…). I’m hoping to finish that today.
Tomorrow is Ken’s birthday so I’m looking to do things with him. He will be 50. I’ve been teasing him about getting old but really he is just getting better and better. I’m glad I took the day and we will have time together.
Overall it will be a busy weekend but at the same time it has all the best components – family, friends, relaxation, fun, and even getting work done.
