Went to the doctor’s – and check! Got a prescription for Ativan! Yay! More blue pills! I told her why I might need them and as I was talking, my eyes started to well up. Crap. I haven’t been sleeping well and I’ve been biting my cheek while I sleep. I have been pretty damn tired lately, hence the craving for carbs and sweets for energy, so I thought my iron levels were low. So I got a blood test and lo and behold, it is. Figures. I also have been coughing a lot at night. No cold, but she confirmed my post nasal drip issues might be the culprit. She prescribed Nasonex. And then we talked about H1N1 vaccine so I’m going back for my physical and to get the shot. Eww, I’d forgo the shot if I didn’t have to get on a plane and care for a newborn. I ran into a friend of mine who got H1N1 and she was sick for 3 weeks and lost 13 pounds. Some people are so lucky. I’ve never lose my appetite, even when I’m sick. I can always choke back some chicken soup and ice cream.
On my list of things to do: mammogram (swell) and a physical. Gotta load up on Vit. C and D and iron get my rest. Gotta pack a bag just in case we need to move faster than we planned. Gotta reserve a room. Gotta get a grip. Really liking the colour blue right about now.
