So I decided I'm going to try and get myself on some sort of schedule. Even if all it does is get me out of bed in the morning and into a chair downstairs, so be it. I've set quite a few alarms for myself, so that if I start napping accidentally, an alarm will go off, assuring that I don't sleep the whole day away. I write everything down, or I forget. Increased my meds on schedule again, now I'm super drowsy again, and having dizzy spells. A friend of mine said her husband went through the same thing and it passed. When I called my pharmacy and my doctor's office they said the same. In the meantime, no driving for me. Turns out 2 of my meds have the common side effect of weight gain. Combine that with my hyperthyroidism and I'm afraid no matter what I do I'll never lose!
Got paperwork in the mail today for CPP (Canadian Pension Plan) Disability. Depressing, but necessary. It sounds like I have to apply for this, and whatever they don't cover gets topped up by my work? I don't quite understand, but I'm going to include a note to that effect and hopefully someone will contact me and let me know.
This whole thing is driving me crazy!
