Switching my birth control from the 6 month long pill set (I’m blanking on the name…) that I was on to treat my Endometriosis, back to Diane 35, which I was previously on before my surgery and treats my cystic acne, is causing quite the unpleasant hormonal stir in my body.
Today I am feeling awful AGAIN thanks to the never-ending string of migraines that have decided to come out and play, much to my dismay. Sometimes I’m lucky and they don’t come in with a roar until later in the day, but today one was there the moment I opened my poor, hurting eyes. Maxalt, Zofran, and painkillers are my new best friends (although we’ve always had a very close relationship!). I’ve been plagued with nausea now for more than a week, and have only been able to eat the most basic food (which isn’t that far from normal with the gastroparesis anyways…). It constantly feels like the room is spinning around me. My emotions are all over the place, and I’ve been pushing myself too hard to be productive when I really should be taking it easy.
So I am declaring today an official stay in bed day. I’m going to nap when I can, watch a movie or two, and maybe flip through a magazine. Today, I’m taking care of me for a change.
Thanks Mr. Cat.
Hope you are all out there taking care of yourselves!
