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?? 🙂
Wow…that’s rough. Get some rest and I hope you feel better soon. Save all of your receipts for the claims adjuster! (I’m such an insurance person now….lol)Feel better!
That’s awful~hoping your back pain gets better & that the dizziness won’t return.
OMG! That just sucks! I can’t believe all that you’re going through! I just had to laugh, though, at your first sentence … I’ve never read a blog entry where someone said, “I’m getting high.” LOL!!! 🙂 I hope that you’re not coming down with a cold or the flu on top of it! That would be horrible! I hope that you feel better soon. Dizziness is NOT fun. It’s a scary feeling!
heh…you should blog when you are high – I would love to read what comes out! =)
Poor thing. Feel better. Soon. Please.
I’d tell you to kick back with a glass of wine, but in this case, I think… probably you should stay away from any additional substances!
Hope you feel better today.
Ew on the pain! *hugs*
You poor thing, in so much pain! Thankfully there are drugs to help ease it at least a bit.
Your post about Christmas has gotten me very excited for the season myself!
