When Victory Is Claimed by Simple Virtue of Not Passing Out

I'm not okay, but it's not the kind of 'not okay' that anyone has to worry about.

The salt helped immensely.

What a difference.

It's kind of stupid typing it out, but do you realize how much better things are when you don't feel like you're going to pass out?

From fighting to keep my eyes open to just merely being tired.

I could remember where the remote was and able to realize I didn't know where my phone was.

You know, the ol' brain actually started synapsing again.

zaaap zzzzzzaaaaap

Of course, Hubby ignored the messages I was emailing him.

Of course, the toddler had swiped my phone and shoved it in her backpack (which she'd been lugging around all day) when I wasn't looking.

Good thing nothing bad happened.

It was shocking how fast it hit. How unaware I was of the decline until I was on the edge of not being awake anymore.

I have to do better.

  1. Glad you're okay, now. I was worried.

    I think it's time you make sure the toddler knows how to call 911. If it's going to creep up on you like that, or if it hits suddenly. It's scary to think about, but my oldest was schooled from age two on how to call 911, cause my asthma was so bad then. Never needed it, but she loved playacting the hero, and if I did actually pass out, I knew she would know what to do.

    Hope you're on the right health track!

    Good luck and Happy Holidays!

  2. I am worried to.

    Drinking pickle juice increments of 1/2 cup is not my idea of living the dream.

    I don't think the toddler could handle 911 calls yet. She kind of knows her address but I don't think she would be very reliable.

    I don't know how to handle that aspect yet.

    The only thing I can think is this is some kind of cumulative effect of the HC shorter half life. Now, half the day my body gets nothing whereas prednisone was able to last a little more than 24 hours according to the calculations the endo did.I wonder if all this craziness is due to that.

  3. "...do you realize how much better things are when you don't feel like you're going to pass out?" This isn't stupid. I totally get it. I'm glad you're feeling a little better now. Pickle juice, huh? I'll have to give it a try.
