A little update...since I've been MIA

Hi everyone!

Okay, so I'm feeling better each day. I've started getting out of the house again, and I am sleeping (I was going DAYS without!). The new medication is working quite nicely. I was sleeping all day and up all night, but I am even getting myself on a more decent schedule...gradually.


I had gained 10 pounds in water-weight, inexplicably, and they finally had to put me on water pills every day. I am now on water pills every other day, which is fun, because now that I'm using a pill box, I don't pay attention, and I forget which day is "water pill day" until I start running to pee every 2 minutes! I am waiting on my appointment with my ob/gyn to have an ultrasound - in 2 weeks - to see if they can find something that is causing this. (They've tested everything via bloodwork and urine several times.) I still have a little swelling, and if I miss a water pill, which I did this week, I will start to swell back up. They do drop my bp some, but not more than I can live with.


The increase in the Cymbalta is kicking back in. I feel a little more like myself, and I am giving myself "tasks" now to re-engage. I was practically in hiding, playing mindless games on my computer all the time, and I didn't feel like part of my family, much less society. I got super depressed. But the past week has seen a remarkable improvement on that front.


I still have some tremors, but that has improved, too. I can't cook (not that I want to or ever do, but still), I can't use a knife, but I can play my piano and write somewhat legibly again.


We are getting there, one day at a time.


Hopefully I can be on here a little more now. I just felt so stupid and disconnected there for a while.

I hope all of you are doing okay!
