Today was the second time having those injections in my shoulders. Again, they triggered intense body memories, anxiety and near tears. This time there were four, not two. I wonder if it’s wise to continue. I’m not sure if they’re helping, though I’m going to give them a chance.
Right now, I’m tired, out of meds for the weekend (duh, I should have paid attention when they just swapped out my remaining meds on Monday and realized I would have anything for the weekend). I’m going to take some Benadryl tonight and hopefully it’ll help me sleep. Tomorrow I plan on getting some grading done and some shopping. It’s been weeks since I did any shopping. Since it’s going to be hotter on Sunday, I’m going to take the day to rest. Maybe I’ll set up my Mac as a media center and update the OS on my Linux box. If not, maybe I’ll set up a Windows virtual machine on my Mac. Or maybe I’ll just sleep.
I’ll see the orthopedist on Monday again. I also need to see my p-doc for my weekly med check. I’ll try to convince him to let me go back to bi-monthly checks once (if, trying to think positively here) I’m stable. And ugh, the Risperdal is giving me tremors. Not fun when you’re writing. Even less fun when you’re writing with your wrist in a splint.
