Doctors and Medications

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

I went to the orthopedic doctor yesterday for a shot in my back to make it feel better. It's still hurting. I'm supposed to go for two more but if it doesn't stop hurting soon I don't think I will.

When I went to my psychiatrist, I was taken off a medication that really put me out of it. It was way too strong for me and I was never really given a reason for why I was put on it. But now I feel that I'm a little down. I don't feel like I have much motivation or drive to do anything. The cold weather isn't helping any, but I hate feeling this way. I need to somehow find something to interest me and something to do.

    I tend to agree with Amy, coming off the medication will be having its effect. Make sure you support yourself with good food and get some exercise even if it hurts.

    Spring will be coming soon and with it the sun and the energy! It is good to be off the medication and your body will get used to it too!

    I know what you mean about the injections, mine didn't work for me either so not getting any more done as far as the ones in my neck.

    I hope that the down feeling clears up it might be effects of coming off the medication. emoticon
