Everybody needs a little these days, right?
I (me) finally found the cause of my illness; which has kept me >50% bedridden for many months.
Good ol' overmedication.
I really don't blame the docs (exactly). But shortly after my bellyache posts here, and right after one of my docs prescribed a new drug to add to my list; I decided I really needed to go back to square one, and find out what my unmedicated symptoms might be.
So I took what the docs call a "drug holiday", which they chuckle about when they mention it. A holiday from drugs, not on them.
I quit. Not cold turkey, but tapering off; and I told the docs after I'd done it.
After 2 months of letting them all clear out of my systems- holy fecal material - I'm well.
Or at least back to my old complaints, not the new ones that were so debilitating.
So those thousands of you who have been losing sleep worrying about me- all the worry vibes seem to have worked, and I'm back to my quasi-normal self.
The rebound effect, though is fierce. There's a shipload of work that's been waiting for me, so I'm like, um, really busy. On the road, at the moment, visiting, talking, looking.
