the holiday season

now that it *finally* feels like winter here, i’m starting to get excited about the holidays. i love this time of year. i love starting a fire and snuggling up under a blanket. i love hot chocolate and apple cider. i love bundling up in cute sweaters. *insert happy sigh here*

it’s also time for me to start working on our holiday card list. i still need to figure out what we’re going to do for a picture. decisions, decisions. and since i’m now making my list and checking it twice, if any of you want to swap cards and receive the best holiday card ever, send me an email with your address and i’ll make sure i have you down!

flying high

i got high last night. i went to my new doctor yesterday, and she gave me prescriptions for hydrocodone and soma (a muscle relaxant) as well as putting three lydoderm patches on my back. when i got home, i took the scripts and some cold and flu meds (i felt like i was coming down with something) and it didn’t take long before i was completely out of it. i was so loopy and couldn’t walk straight. it was crazy. i asked the doctor if i could drive after taking the meds.

doctor: you can drive, but if you get pulled over you’ll test positive for being under the influence of hydrocodone and get arrested.

ok, so no, i can’t drive.

i’m taking today off because my back is hurting really bad. the doctor told me to expect to be in pain for at least another month, and she said it could flare up in the future, though there’s no way to know for sure right now. fabulous. and if i get dizzy again today i’ll have to have another ct scan because she said some things may not show up right away. here’s hoping the dizziness goes away.

so how are you all doing?? 🙂

a catch 22

my plan today was to go to my primary care doctor since my back is still hurting really bad. it wouldn’t hurt to have him check it out. however, when i called today, i was told that my doctor’s office policy is to not file car wreck incidents through insurance and i would have to pay out of pocket for my visit. and, of course, they can’t tell me how much that will be. now i’m changing doctors. this is another example of our wonderful healthcare system at work.
