Out of Touch


Monday, May 28, 2012

I am not recovering as fast as I had hoped from my medication mix-up. I am not sure if I am depressed or my blood levels are off. I am getting a new test in a few weeks.

As a result, I am not even getting on the computer to check out my dear SparkFriends. So sorry.

    Just take one day at a time. It does stink though. I have not been doing that great either. All of these meds do not help when it comes to trying to stay fit. I have watched what I have eaten way more than most people and I have actually gained weight. If I hadnt watched my food intake I dont know if I would be able to move. Best of luck. Keep us posted when you feel better. I am going to try to log on every day in July. emoticon

    You take care of YOU, my dear friend. Don't apologize! Take all the time you need to get your health straightened out. Your sparkfriends will be here when you get back.

I know it's a miserable feeling. I think my levels are finally better after they lowered my medication. I was having so much trouble sleeping, and I had a low-grade fever all the time. Headaches, the shakes. It stinks! Get better soon!

  When it comes to your health, YOU are your best advocate. I have come to the conclusion that none of the physicians in our community actually practice what they learned in medical school. When I have my yearly physical my doctor enters the exam room, immediately popping up my information on the computer. Then she refers me to a specialist or prescribes medication to address my symptoms. Last week I went into her office fully armed with information I acquired from articles and personal blogs I read on the Spark program. She studied my statistics that have changed since I joined Sparks, realizing that my weight, blood pressure, and cholesterol have improved. As a result, for the first time in my life, my medications were reduced. I was shocked.

I also have found a very compassionate young pharmacist, who actually takes time to not only explain the side-effects of medications, but also to suggest possible alternatives that might have better results or save me money. I trust my pharmacist more than I do my doctor because pharmacists actually study medications, whereas doctors often respond to pharmaceutical salesmen. I guess the older I get the more suspicious I become about people.

Meanwhile, good luck to you in getting healthier.
