Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power.

Wordless Wednesday late again. Smile.


Bad Day Yesterday, Unexpected Visitor Today.

Yesterday was a bad day, I forgot my medication in the morning. That doesn’t sound much  but one pill is gabapentin and it is a neuropathic pain killer. It works on the brain although I have cut down from 12 x300mg a day after my accident  over 7years ago to 1 x300 am and the same pm I am addicted to that small dose .  I can’t believe it either, I can hear you saying she’s joking . I am not. I started iching about 11am. I say itching that’s how it starts then it builds to a feeling of having a thousand creepy crawlies running all over you, honest it feels so real. Then I got irritated really bad tempered, I could not concentrate on anything. I ended up feeling depressed and layed on the sofa watching a box set of the Devil’s Whore for the rest of the day scratching myself raw.

About 4pm I had a thought and went upstairs and looked at my tablets, two out of the four  that I take have the days marked on them. They both still had Wednesday intact ! I knew then I had forgotten to take them.

How could I forget? I had had a late night Tuesday and had woken up late Wednesday morning, 8.30 am and I had not had time to take my tablets because I was due to be at Pilates at 9am!  It was too late to take them at 4pm  so I hung out until 11pm to take the nightly dose. It was too late to take the days blood pressure pill too hey ho I had survived! 

I slept very fitfully and today I am washed out but less irritable and itchiness has gone. ☺️ 

I couldn’t blog yesterday, no concentration you see but I managed some comments. Sorry I couldn’t read any blogs but I shall do my best to catch up.

Today was meant to be a quiet day, dog walk, gym coffee with a friend the hopefully catch up on my blog in the afternoon…...

 Husband was taking his mother out shopping and somehow allowed her to bamoozel him into bringing her back for a meal. 

I had to leave my friend early to go back and prepare a meal, Toad in the Hole. I am only just sitting down now to try and catch up with your blogs and your comments, not to mention do any Bloging of my own. 

Yes I am having a moan! I am not Ritu!
