So, I didn't have the best start today. I sat up in bed, nearly blacked out, and figured I sat up too fast (my adrenal glands don't always regulate my BP correctly, so if I sit, stand, turn around, etc. too fast, things fade to black, but I can usually recover pretty quickly), and lay back down for a moment and sat up again. This time I didn't black out, but had a hallucination. I saw very clearly a woman standing in my closet scratching her arm. Thanks meds! Early on with the meds for my headaches, as I was adjusting, I would wake up suddenly, hallucinate and go back to bed. Not when I would wake up in the morning. So, I get out of bed, and make it just outside our bedroom door in the hallway, where I collapsed onto the (thankfully covered) cat box. The fact that I didn't care that I was on the cat box, but relieved that I wasn't on the floor did not bode well. I then made it to the end of the hallway where I collapsed again, this time onto a large tote containing G's karaoke equipment. I laid there for a bit, and G asked if I should maybe lie down. He helped me to the sofa, and tucked me in, then brought me the phone so I could call my carpool buddy to tell her not to pick me up, and to call work to tell them I would be late. I figured a little more sleep and I would be fine. So, I went in three hours late, but felt fine by that point.
The only thing I can think of was that all of this was because I took my main dose of the headache meds later than normal. I've done this before, and only been a little more tired than normal when I got up...never hallucinating and blacking out. Because I slept it off in about three hours leads me to think that was all it was...but annoying none-the-less!!!
Tomorrow is the EMG, so my day doesn't promise to be much better, except that I will have valium to get me through.
I can definitely use a weekend!!!!!!!
