Bad Blogger

I'm sorry I've been neglecting my blog lately!

It seems these health issues just almost completely brought me to a stop. I had a few days of mild hysteria/panic attacks and it made anything but sitting on the phone with my dad, sobbing, impossible. If that isn't a public safety annoucement for parenthood, I don't know what is. Just because we grow up, does not mean we go away! Thanks Dad!

It appears I have a touch of Mitral Valve Prolapse, common in white women and thyroid patients. I happen to be both. YIPPEE. Doc Wilson put me on beta blockers and now I'm trying to adjust to them. At first, they make you VERY ... lethargic. I looked up this particular one, because I was exhibiting some odd side effects and it was as I had suspected - this particular medicine is given to people to make them calm down, such as PTS syndrome patients, newly back from war. It's sort of a ... anti-depressant of sorts. I shared with the good doctor about my complete mental breakdowns and the way I accosted my father with wailing and tears, every night. He looked taken aback at first and then shortly, I had my handy dandy prescription.

Today is day three, it's hardly had time to absorb, BUT the chest pains are mostly gone - a twinge here and there and the palps are barely detectable..... but I am also feeling sort of ... "what-ev's" ... I am in no hurry to do anything, at the risk of saying I just don't care about much ... lol ... I am just very very relaxed.

Good job Doc! Clearly he knew what meds to put me on. I did not have this feeling with the last beta blockers I was on. It's sort of that monotone, I don't care feeling without the wine. :) I daresay, Conrad is THRILLED. There is peace in the house once again.

I'm sure Conrad needed the rest! Now, if we can just keep you off of WebMD...

Glad the meds are working out!
