FALL DOWN AND GO BOOM..

So...my leg cramps were getting (and still are) worse so I went to see Dr Cujo about either changing my meds or trying something different..so he gives me something I had tried before that didn't work but a higher dosage..yeah, that was a great idea..
I live in a town that the 2 drug stores deliver...so Freddy delivers me my med and at 9:30 (take before bedtime)..at 10:20 I was almost in a coma..was like I was drunk..it scared the fuck out of me.I had a crushing headache and sick to my stomach..I had read the information that always comes with a new drug and knew what the side effects were and one was it can make you go to sleep with no warning..just bam your out..so my heads hurting and I'm nauseated ..so I stand up and wait a few seconds..ok I'm cool...and took three steps and blacked out..bam ..hit the carpet face down..I don't think I was out for long but when I came too I knew I was going to be sick..staggered down the hall to the bathroom and projectile vomited every thing I had in my stomach, two toenails and some undigested gum from the 50's..then I had dry heaves ..this went on till 3:30 am..and of course because I'm a stubborn old lady I didn't call an ambulance. The next day I was describing the events to facebook and shit hit the fan..people were threatening to drive from Virginia to kick my ass then take me to Dr. Cujo..my (and some of your's) friend Babs called me and said I'm coming to get you and take you to Cujo's..and she did..sigh*..I have a concussion, can't drive for meals on wheels or pick up kolaches from Gerik's Bakery for senior center. For at least 2 weeks..maybe longer..up to Cujo..'
I still have a horrible fucking headache..still a tad dizzy(no jokes here folks) and cry at everything..and yes that can be a side effect from a concussion. Charles Osgood retired this morning and set me off on a crying jag..judas priest..It's raining and Dexter got wet, cried..saw a picture of a little girl holding a sign about the word retarded...cried..Redskins made a touchdown, I cried..can't wait for the Cowboys game tonight..I'll be a sobbing mess facedown on the floor again if they loose..
just so you know..I'm ok..nothing I can't handle..gave the Goddess something shiny for me...I'm good..
love you sonsabitches.jsrd

Well, I'm tempted to offer my thoughts and prayers but I know what little value they have so I'll just settle for the only words that ever made sense to me whenever I was having a bad time of things. I think it's some kind of biblical reference but I can't be sure, and frankly, I don't care. Anyway, it's "This, too, shall pass."

yeah, just as long as it's not a kidney stone.

I should go on FB more often to help your other friends kick your ass when needed. 9-1-1 is for situations like you were in. Have you thought about getting a new doctor who doesn't have rabies? Please take care of yourself.

well ole Cujo and I are just fighting a losing battle with my leg cramps..it was my idea to try something different..and had taken that med before with no side effects..so it just came out of the blue.

Well, thank the Goddess you didn't break anything when you fell, although a concussion is bad enough news. Take it easy and let yourself heal up from that, YDG. Those goddamn leg cramps!

Damn Granny, you have to take better care of yourself. What the hell kind of medicine were you prescribed? Perhaps you need a second opinion from a different doctor. Isn't there someone local you could have on speed dial that could get to you if you have any more occurrences? I won't call a doctor even when I am ill; but my wife interventions for me.
I know this is strange from a virtual friend, but we love you and Dexter is depending on you, so don't tough it out - call someone when you feel bad.

I have to learn to ask for help..I'm smarter than that..I know I have to do it, but damn it's so hard..the grands are coming over today and one of my 'net friends' got something started on facebook and someone is bringing me dinner every day till Friday and then they will start up again next week if I need it..have volunteers to clean, pet dexter do laundry and take out trash..people have been so kind..making me weep..and thank the Goddess the Cowboys won or I'd still be crying..Goddess bless yo'sweet hearts.
