Yesterday was a washout day for me. Woke up with the headache that I'd gone to bed with the night before. Because of my reaction to medications, I have to be very careful if and when I take anything. Yesterday was definitely one of those rare days when I knew I was going to have to take something. I ended up calling into to work and leaving a message that I was not coming in. Went and took a tylenol and headed for bed once again. Medication will usually affect me in one of two ways, either I'll be having a close relationship with the toilet bowl or it knocks me out....YAY...I got both reactions! I think possibly due to the fact that the headache was so bad to begin with. At least there was enough of the medication in my system to knock me out. I slept until almost 11:30 am. When I did wake up, the headache was almost gone, but I felt like I was in a fog for the rest of the day.
Today...I'm back in the land of the living. I will take things easy at work, drink lots of water and eat very healthy!(but lightly)
Feeling much better this morning.
Being able to take a day off work and take care of myself.
An email letting me know that I have several books on hold for me at the library! YAY reading material once again.
Having such adverse reactions to medications forces me to take care of my body the best that I can and avoid ever having to take them in the first place. Sometimes it is beyond my control, but by eating healthy, exercising and being aware of stress levels, I can usually maintain good healhth. I suspect that all the yard work we have been doing the past few days...I may have over done things and may not have filled my body with all the nutrients it needed.
I learn from my mistakes!
Have a wonderful day,
