Millimeter by Millimeter

I'm still buggy. I don't know what to do with myself.

I see Dr. Evers this afternoon and Dr. Lynch tomorrow, but the next 15 minutes is daunting.

This is not me.

Hi Jimmy, Whatever it takes to get through is ok, it can be minute by minute or second by second if necessary. Do you remember those commercials "this is your brain on drugs", well this is your body pushed to the limit, I know it will take some time to get back to "NORMAL" but it will happen, Ed & I have enough faith for all of us. Keep fighting the good fight!

Jim -

When your godson was on Reglan, my brother was upset - because he knew first hand what that med could do to your system. At the time, that was what the little guy needed, and we just got him off it as quickly as possible.

When you go see the counselor with whom you made an appointment, you might want to ask them about giving you some concrete relaxation techniques/tapes/exercises. Sometimes having a specific visualization or breathing exercise can really help you get through the next 15 minutes. Remember those lamaze classes?

I hope your dr appointments go well today and tomorrow. We're pulling for you.

Love,

Kita (who has not turned new age, despite what the above might suggest!)

Jim,

Bugginess sucks. That's why people needed to stay away from the brown acid at Woodstock. Been there, done that (had a majorly horrible reaction to the caffeine component in Excedrin. John had to come home from work to help me crawl into bed after crashing hard...bad bad day) bought the t-shirt. The worst part is that when it's occuring, you feel like it's never gonna end. Your irrational thoughts race, and you feel panic terror, angst, and sometimes a really killer headache.

Glad to hear that you talked to your docs. It's a smart move, because that's what they are there for, and they have seen all this kinda stuff before, and can make adjustments and monitor side effects.

WHen the bugginess wears off, you're most likely going to feel in need of something sedating. John is busy working on a slide show of our Disney pictures, set to the music of John Tesh. Also, I've obtained a copy of a video of the latest Heartland Home Health and Hospice conference, entitled, "Insurance Premiums and You: A Three Hour Lecture." Just say the word and they're yours!

Get well soon, my friend!

Love,
Jenn

John Tesh? More like John Williams. But seriously, it's been a slooowww day at work. I've been having fun with photoshop and some of the photos from the Bahead Yahoo group. I'll post 'em to the site and e-mail the to ya too Jim. Hopefully they'll give a good laugh!

Jim,

P.S. We've been missing you at the pub too. Can't wait to see you back!
