So I started my new medication this weekend. There were some pretty nauseating side-effects – literally! Every time I sat for longer than 10 minutes the nausea would just start to roll over me in waves. If I sat even longer than the the vertigo would set it and my head would start pounding. The worst part is that the pamphlet the doctor gave me on the drug said it can take upwards of 12 weeks for the meds to start fully working! What? I have to wait until Thanksgiving to start feeling better?!? Ugh!
The nice thing about the nausea (I know kinda sick to say there was a nice thing but I’m all about find the silver lining) is that I got quite a lot accomplished in the sewing room and with my home dec dresser project. Unfortunately I am still having these symptoms so sitting at my computer and editing photos for this post is not very appealing right now. Hopefully I will have more energy for that tonight. In the meantime, say a prayer that I adjust to the new meds quickly because this nausea is getting really old really fast and it is hard to have fun with my baby.
In other news, wish Anne luck, today she goes to see the dentist for her 3rd visit. I made her a special bag (pictures tomorrow I hope) that I am going to give the receptionist when we check in. I’m going to ask that they put all her goodies into it (toothpaste, toothbrush, flossers, etc.) so she has an extra special bag to take home. My little attempt at making the dentist a good thing. I used my Berenstain Bears fabric and before bed last night we read The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist. I’m hoping it goes well.
How was your weekend?
