  1. Plus, I had to go from 50 to 100 to 200 all within a few months. I think I’ll at least try going back to 100 to see if I can get by on it. 😆
  2. Because I just read pages of horrific stories of coming off it. I just can’t even imagine having to go through the stuff they went through...a good couple hundred.
  3. The higher dose not more than a couple of months. I think I’m already somewhat addicted though...didn’t take it last night, didn’t sleep as well, was very weak this morning until I took it again...took it right after the last post here though to feel better and I’m just feeling kinda “nice”? Very, very relaxed. Going back to 100 tomorrow. I hope you’re right. Oh. And was a LOT hungrier today before taking it. 😐
  4. Thanks. I really hope you’re right. I read a huge amount of reviews at drugs.com and all were nightmare scenarios with all complaining of the same problems. The extreme insomnia, depression, and anxiety have me scared shitless. Still gonna go back down to the 100 ER instead of the 200’s she recently prescribed. Scared to death. The last thing I need is my illness x2. Hope you’re right. Thanks again.
  5. Crap. I’m now panicking. Looked up more information on Tramadol...seems it could be contributing to better sleep and lower appetite, but then looked up getting off of it and it sounds like it’s gonna be hell. I’m gonna start trying to get off it now before I get to that point. Severe insomnia, depression, severe anxiety, night sweats, pain, no way. Have to stop it NOW. Back to being anxious! crap. This explains so much now...the shit days with shit sleep and mood, and the weakness this morning. Fml.
  6. Physically weak today for some reason. Bored. Not very anxious for a change. Eating too much. Did I mention bored?
  7. Anxious. The apartment manager asked me when I’d be around today because she’s meeting everyone individually between the two hotels we’re all staying at for...who knows what? I have a suspicion that we may be getting told that we have to stay longer at the hotel longer than the initial October 31st that was given to us. I can’t think of what else it could be. 1) if she’s simply giving us the dates we’re going back home, seems she’d just give us all a letter so we could plan accordingly. 2) she just had a meeting with me, relocation specialist, general manager here at the hotel to address his mistreatment of me and the issue about the very uncomfortable mattress that I’ve been dealing with for 2 months while begging for a switch the entire time without any change. It seems if we were leaving as planned, she wouldn’t have fought so hard for a switch. I dunno. Had a biopsy done on an oozing nodule on my ear for about two months and I’m anxious about that too cause I’ve already been on 3 different antibiotics with no results... and it hurts just to put my phone on it and wakes me up when I end up sleeping on that side. More rambling.
  8. I finally got my mattress switched out here at this freakin hotel, which is sposed to be known for its comfy beds. Slept much better. After 2 years of waiting, I’m finally at the top of the list for housing assistance so now I just wait for the phone call. This is huge, as living in the beehive of gossiping busy bees has been detrimental to my mental illness... GP started me on Baclofen for muscle pain which doesn’t help for that at all for that, but I’ve noticed I’m feeling much more wakeful after sleeping! I also check Fitbit and it’s showing as almost double of my typical REM time. I then googled it, and it seems it has been used for those with narcolepsy, so it’s wonderful! I’m even sleeping longer than I prefer, but I’ll just have to start setting my alarm to get Abby to the park while it’s still cool.
  9. I have no idea what to do! In my hotel room, FREEZING cold but thermostat still says it’s 74° and I can only sleep at 69° but I’m BURIED in blankets! Wtf is going on...😢

      Your...hair is frozen? 

      When I was a teenager and had long hair, here, in the icy north, in midwinter, if I went outside with wet hair it would literally freeze, into a rigid sheet I could hold at a 90 degree angle to my body. 

      Now I have a pixie cut, and that’s how it’s gonna stay.

      @Gearhead 😂 I did that once while visiting North Dakota. Was scared I’d break it off...pretty sure it could’ve!

      @crow66 yeah, I’ll have to remember to eat something next time cause I did eventually warm up!

      Sorry to hear you're too cold in the hotel room...Maybe something's wrong with the thermostat?

  10. Getting ear sore biopsy finally...after 2 months of pain and oozing bloody drainage. 

    1. Gearhead


      Jesus Christ! That sounds horrible. I hope you get an explanation, and relief.

      The fucking numbing stuff has warn off and fuck does it hurt 😢 

  11. Honestly, suicidal. I was treated poorly here at this shit hotel, and it was only getting worse, I complained to Hilton on twitter cause the mgr here is the highest mgr here, and now they’re all treating me like scum. HE treated me like a pos. I cannot be here another 1.5 months with this! I can’t deal with this. I don’t want to leave my room and I want to disappear.
  12. Thanks for the LOVELY support everyone! Obviously can’t stick around NOW! Bye.

      I truly hope that you are ok..

  13. My thyroid dipped a minute but pdoc took me off it immediately and have tested normal since.
  14. Ok. I have just puked up salmon. 3oz. Worst fucking taste/texture the second time around, EVER. That, and I cannot stop shaking! I don’t know what to do! Called neurologist for the 3rd time in a week for a refill on my zofran but noooo...lazy fucking nurse 🤬🖕

      That sounds ghastly. But it reminds me that the last time I took care of my friend K’s cats, the day I served them salmon in gravy canned food, they managed, between the two of them, to throw up five times. 

      I hope you feel better. Max and Blue commiserate.

      Thanks a lot. Y’all keep me hanging on here. 🙏 

  15. I’ve had some decent sections of the past several days, but puking and nausea, and other issues addressed in blog, I’m starting to go downhill again I think. I’ve needed to do laundry for several days now...to the point of having to go commando ha, tmi sorry...and just can’t get myself to go do one load. Needed to go to the store desperately yesterday, couldn’t do it. Though I have managed to force myself to get Abby to the park or guilt eats me alive. Tdoc finally called and got me into a cancellation tomorrow. Thank goodness.
  16. Have been puking off and on for 3 days now. Nonstop nausea. Now I’m feeling feverish. But, NO DOCTOR! Oh...and stomach so bloated I look pregnant!

  17. Worthless, inconsequential, dispirited, ostracized.
