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!

    Willow I’m sorry to hear about the bad day. How awful! I hate having to take meds that cause such a reaction when you miss one. So many of them are like that and doctors don’t warn us that they’ll be difficult to stop taking (if the day comes when we don’t really need them anymore for the original purpose). Anyway, hope your day goes better tomorrow and that you have a good night tonight! ❤️

    It’s amazing, the difference one little pill can make. Glad you’re on the mend.
