Off The Meds And Making Cupcakes
My daughter had her birthday in school today. Summer recess begins BEFORE her true date, so we had to choose a day this week to celebrate instead. I asked her what she wanted and naturally it was pink cupcakes with pink icing. LOL! That’s a girl for you…
So yesterday, I whipped up the mixture and colored the icing. After I made them, I didn’t feel like cooking dinner so we opted for pizza. Everyone deserves a night off from dinner, right?
The rest of this post is a bit whiny, so click on the continue reading link only if you are up for it.
About a week ago, I decided to take myself off the daily migraine pill I’ve been on for the last few months for personal reasons. (Editor’s note: not ready to discuss why yet} I’m having a really hard time readjusting back to normalcy. The first few days I was severely dizzy and nauseous. Luckily, I was able to function through my days, but I didn’t feel good at ALL.
Then the dizziness stopped (thankfully) and I had about a day or two of feeling good. However, the last few days I’ve been crazy emotional and have been suffering from a migraine that just won’t go away. I keep chalking it up to my body readjusting to NOT being on the meds, but that isn’t stopping the burst of tears. I’m not sad in any way, shape or form – but I am just so emotional.
The worst part of it all is the pills used to help me sleep and now I absolutely cannot sleep because I am so used to getting help in that department. So at 3AM or so every single morning, I wake up and cannot go back to sleep. You have to see the bags under my eyes. Puffy as can be.
The kids are out of the house ALL day today. I have until 3PM to just be alone and try to catch a few zzzzs. Perhaps that will do it. I’m sorry for the brain dump, but I haven’t been myself lately and I know I’m posting a bit less than usual. Just wanted you to know why. 🙂
