I don't think I've been on this site all week long =( I've been a sick Momma. lol My daughter was sick earlier in the week and stayed home with Momma everyday except today. Needless to say all that cuddling with Momma passed those little germies to me. lol I don't mind, I'm just glad she is feeling better.

Sooo, I went to my doctor to discuss my weight loss and found out that I haven't been taking the meds that were prescribed to me. I don't know how to explain it, other than I did go to get a few of them prescribed and the prescriptions were expired. I was anxious about them taking my BP because I know that I was being a bad patient and had not been taking my BP meds. Long story short, my doctor told me that I didn't need to be on my BP meds any longer AND he took me off of the two anti depressants that I was on. YAAAYYYYY!!!!! We also decided because my anxiety has lessened considerably that we could lower my dosage of Xanax and cut the count back. Which comes to the question from my doctor of what did you change in the last two months in your life that has fostered such a significant, positive change? My answer:

I switched to night shift.

I knew that I was under a lot of unnecessary stresses and that working days with certain people was giving me terrible anxiety. I had no idea that it was taking THAT much of a toll on me and I can't even begin to express how pleased I am to be off of those three medications! All I have now is my inhaler (albuterol) and a nice low dose Xanax for those times when my anxiety is absolutely uncontrollable.

I. Am. So. Excited!

Although I feel like doodie from my mindset is right and I feel like my will is strong...I'm feeling GREAT!
