Well, it’s just getting worse. My fatigue is through the roof now and my pain is increasing. I’m not happy with my life right now. And, I haven’t been able to have sex for almost a week because it’s too painful. I’ve been bleeding, so we’ve decided to stop until I’ve completely healed… but it doesn’t seem like I’m healing at all. I’m so tired of this and have never had to deal with this before. I rarely hurt with my ex, except for after a couple times in a row, but I can only have sex with my current boyfriend once a day.. when I’m not in severe pain already. I don’t understand. I mean, yeah, he’s larger, but that shouldn’t matter… should it? Maybe it’s my new(er) birth control pills… I don’t know :/
Yesterday I slept until 11:30 and took two naps and still passed out when I went to bed. I’ve had no energy to do anything! I already took one, 2 hour nap, and I’m fighting to get anything done. I have two, two page papers to write, a movie to watch and answer questions to, and finish a take-home test… I hope that’s all.
And, so far it hasn’t been too bad. I’m in a good mood and I got a card in the mail from my mom with Chili’s and Pizza hut gift cards :D I think I’m going to use the chili’s one tonight :] So, I’m 19 now. And, it isn’t much different lol. Hopefully my day stays good! I hope everyone has a great day, as well!
To stay off the Wellbutrin for three days and call him back. Awesome. They want to make sure it is the Wellbutrin causing my symptoms. I’m 100% sure, but oh well. I’m already feeling better, but I’m feeling tired as hell, like the past week or so has been. I’m barely shaking, but still badly twitching in my legs.
Well, I called the doctor’s office on Friday and was told that the doctor won’t be in until Monday. I told the nurse my side effects, so hopefully he can prescribe me something else without me coming in.. since I’m 4 hours away and all. My Medicaid will be gone on Tuesday… so hopefully he allows me to get it before then so I don’t have to pay a bunch lol. I need to see if I can have Medicaid up here in Michigan. It’s dumb that a person my age will immediately qualify for Medicaid if she’s pregnant… but I probably won’t. GAH! or I’ll have to jump through hoops.
Anyone know anything about Michigan’s Medicaid system and it’s policies.. or where to go?
Here’s a tip for the do-it-yourself crowd: Go to your computer’s Start menu, and either go to “run” or just search for “cmd.” Open it up, and type in “ping [website address],”
Once you have the IP for a website, all you really need to do is enter it like you would a normal URL nd hit enter/press go. Typing in “188.8.131.52” should bring you to the front page of AO3, for example, just as typing “184.108.40.206/dashboard” should bring you straight to your Tumblr dashboard. Since we’re obviously bracing for the worst case scenario which would involve you not being able to access the internet regularly, you should, save this list.
Dear Tumblr-ers, -ites, ettes, and whatever other things you may prefer,
Please reblog the crap out of this. Add to it if you feel there is stuff necessary but missing.
P.S. Thank you to the lovely who wrote this up.
I don’t understand how to do it though, but..
Some of us use tumblr not to do stupid shit, but to make a movement, or spread awareness. So this SOPA and PIPA shit is bogus and needs to be stopped.
Yesterday I was feeling fine, then out of nowhere I felt so heavy and weak and tired, and then I took a 3ish hour nap. Today, I felt drained from the moment I opened my eyes. I’m really shaking and feel so heavy. So I went to class and came back afterwards. Now, I’m just laying in bed because standing seems impossible and sitting upright is uncomfortable. It isn’t so much pain, as it is the heaviness and fatigue… boo.
Well, it’s snowing now and the pain sucks. I was sitting in class for 4 hours and thought I was going to die. My shoulders, and hips were on fire! I hate weather changes like this, because my body obviously doesn’t like it. And, the shaking isn’t getting any better, still.
classes have been ok. I’m a little overwhelmed by my A&P II class, but I’m sure everything will work out fine. It kind of has too anyway. I have ways to get help if I need it, anyway. I’ve been doing ok. I’ve had dumb bumps on my tongue for a couple days now, and they hurt :[ I hate it when that happens for no reason at all! My shaking isn’t too bad today, a lot better than yesterday at least. And, seeing that I’m typing wayyy better, yeah that’s an improvement! The pain isn’t too bad again today. My hips are a little tender and my tummy hasn’t been feeling the greatest, but hey.. it’s a good day! and a nice day at that!
I hung out with my favorite roomie for a little bit, I miss her! So, I’m going to hang out with her tomorrow too!
By the way, you all should make a Patientslikeme.com account. It is a cool tool to keep track of how your days are and have been and see other people that deal with the same things as you. try it out! It definitely paints a picture when I can see charts of my levels of pain/fatigue/etc in charts! lol
Well, I’m pretty much living with my boyfriend now. I still am technically living with my other roommates because I can’t legitimately move in with him because the college is against coed living. But, it’s ok to be here as long I don’t bring all of my stuff here. So, yey! and I’m living with our good friend. We’ll see how it goes. I like it so far. And things are going really good in our relationship. I am very happy.
First day of classes for the second quarter was today. I just had A&P II, so it wasn’t too bad. Tomorrow I have Abnormal Psychology, which I’m SO excited for! Even though I’m not going into psychology, it has always interested me. It’s required anyway lol.
My shaking continues. I really hope that it goes away, but it almost feels worse than before. My hands normally haven’t been shaking if I have them on a surface, it kind of keeps it stable. But, now that isn’t the case. It’s a constant shaking. *sigh*. Side effects are dumb lol.
Shaking or twitching? If u take another anti-depressant w/Wellbutrin, you can develop Serotonin Syndrome. You develop uncontrollable muscle twitches. I had it when I took Effexor & Wellbutrin. Make sure ur other drugs aren’t interacting w/Wellbutrin.
Well, my doc said that one works on serotonin and the other works on norepinephrine. So I don’t know if that changes anything?
My roommate either takes Wellbutrin now or took it (the one she took before killed her sex drive and the one she takes now made her shaky), and it does lessen eventually, but it does start again if she's anxious or has caffeine. I hope it works out!
I’m still shaking and I hate it! lol my boyfriend is upset about it, too. Hopefully it lessens soon.
You said you liked zoloft, how come your doc is making you switch? Wouldnt he/she be in favor of keeping you on one that works? I just started mine and I don't feel like myself.. I feel wobbly, and weak. I have hardly eaten all day but it's because my appetite is gone, not cause im not /wanting/ to eat. Is this normal in the first few days?
My doctor is only switching me if the Wellbutrin also works, along with helping with pain. I am still taking the Zoloft, though. But, I kind of doubt that I will be staying on the new stuff because of the side effects. Yeah, I’ve felt weird the first few days. If it lasts a couple weeks I’d call your doctor about switching to something else.
Well, a common side effect of Wellbutrin (which I’ve been taking about a week now) is shakiness. Guess what? Yeah, my hands shake and even my legs will shake. It’s ridiculous! I hate it so much, it’s hard to type and use the track pad (or whatever you call it) on my laptop. I can’t open things very well, and getting my pills out of those damn pill bottles suck.. not opening them (I turn the lid over so it’s a twist on), but getting them out! BLEH! I really hope this goes away because I have to try these out for a month… a whole month!
Hey, I'm sorry that you had a bad day today! I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone. People do care about you. You're a really strong person for dealing with all that you've had to deal with. You could be an inspiration to many! If you ever need someone to talk to, I'm here sweetie! :) Stay beautiful!<3
It looks like I complain too much, now. I put on Facebook that I was having a bad day and last night that my shoulder hurt, I get a call from my mom (who is at work) telling me that I complain too much and that she is only trying to help me when she tells me that everyone deals with aches and pains. That, it’s my fault that I feel pain because I lay around all day when I’m home from break. I lay around because I’m already in pain and I take naps because I feel somewhat better afterwards. And, the reason I’m in pain when I’m back home is because it stresses me out. My doctor said I was having panic attacks… doesn’t that say something?! I don’t like being here, and I always dread it. All I want from my mom is some SYMPATHY. She’s so harsh, and that isn’t what I need. I KNOW that i’ll deal with this forever, and I KNOW there may not be any meds that help. But it would be nice if she could be nicer than my already dreary future. I can’t wait to get out of here, get a job, and get an apartment so I don’t have to be here anymore. It’s bullshit. Don’t I already deal with enough?
The pain has gotten worse throughout the day. I woke up with a sore throat because I was getting sick from my meds yesterday morning. I got sick about a dozen times, it wasn’t fun at all. So, today I had the sore throat, and a bad headache that I’ve had for about a week, and then I started getting pain in my right shoulder :[ No fun. I woke up at about 1:30, ate, and went back to bed at 3 and woke up at 5. Then I ate a little bit of dinner. I haven’t been able to eat much at a time (a serving size) because my stomach shrunk from getting sick and not eating yesterday. Ugh, I just want to feel better.
