Okay this is ridiculous. It’s 12:22 people….hey that’s my birthday!
I saw a rheumatologist today at my internal medicine group doctor office. Yes indeedee I have fibromyalgia, along with osteoarthritis, bursitis, and some questionable spots on my face. And by the way, hows about a couple of injections in your hips….ummm…no thank you, really I’m not that bad….
So my new gung-ho doctor puts me on amitriptyline, which is supposed to help me sleep AND a prednisone taper. Oh goody, I already cannot sleep. I’m sure once I start the predisone I will be up for the next 10 days. Perfect, just in time to have a visit from my 2.5 year old granddaughter, for whom I made this very cute quilt. Notice the backing, so soft polka dot minkey, notice the already tired looking me, and that was after a good night’s sleep:
I also made matching doll blankets for Ally and my little neighbor Paisley:
Here they are having a snack, notice the rice chip hanging out of Ally’s mouth, no doubt with hummus on it:
Anyway back to drugs…. I could take an ambien, but oh no I had to look up amitriptyline on drugs.com and there is an interaction with Ambien, it could make me tooooo sleepppyyyy… but I dunno at this point I am willing to chance it. Maybe first I will go turn on the TV and see if there is anything so boring it will put me to sleep, like a good infomercial….
Oh no… is that a hunger pain I just felt?????
