I want to apologize for not being more active on SP the last few days. I'm not sure what to blame my lack of energy on. It could be partly the weather. It's been bitter cold here in Detroit. I'm not a winter person anyway, and air temperatures hovering around zero have made me want to sit on the couch and hibernate with my blankets around me.
I've also been weening myself off of some medicines that I've been on for a little over four years now. I really was never given a reason for the original doctor's putting me on them. The doctors over the years have just gone with the flow and kept prescribing them. I finally found a doctor that looked at me and also questioned why I am on them. It's only the first week. I'm off the one now and am almost off the other one. But, meanwhile, I alternate from not sleeping to wanting to keep sleeping. I go from hot flashes to chills. I don't really have much desire to do anything. I've got an appointment with the doctor today and will check in with him to see if what I'm going through is normal. I suspect it is from what little I have read. I'd think that the internet would give me a little more information. It really only gave me a slight overview. Comments that patients have left made me a little apprehensive. But I am determined to do this.
So, please be patient with me as I adjust to a new way of life. I am hoping to be back to my usual self soon.
