Lots of thoughts running around inside my head. Right now the “to-do” and “want-to-do” lists are astronomical and work is very busy (although somewhat settled down from yesterday).
My appointment with my GP yesterday was pretty good- I don’t have any new big issues, so it was relatively brief. We talked a bit about how this blog and online communities have been helping my mental health, and there was no judgement that I haven’t followed up with either of the therapists.
We talked a bit about my allergies and migraines, and I’m starting a slightly different migraine treatment scale since some treatments are now unavailable to me due to the MTX. Reminder to self: stop by pharmacy today or tomorrow for prescription, daily allergy pills, and iron.
We also talked about the fatigue, and I had gobs of blood drawn as usual. I hadn’t made a note that I was supposed to fast and they didn’t remind me when they called, so my cholesterol report may be a bit off. We’ll see how it goes. I have lost no weight, but then again, I haven’t gained any either, which I take as a win.
I’m currently at that “let’s see how things go” stage of a new treatment. I’m hoping that a few more weeks will have a stronger effect once it has time to build up in my system, but my MTX dose is very, very low. I have been trying to cut back on the daily arthritis pills, but really can’t, which is a bit frustrating. My goal for this week is to get the front room set up enough so that I can start doing yoga there, which should help with some of the stiffness and soreness. I found the weights, but have no idea where my yoga dvd or mat is- oy.
