Drugged and Tired......

Not too much to post today.....

I am on a powerful steroid to clear my sinus inflammation and it's starting to work.

Good News: Its clearing the inflammation.

Bad News: This stuff makes me feel drunk, drugged and high.....and I never have been none of the latter.

I am being weened off of it now and pray the inflammation doesn't return....dont want nasal surgery. I was at 4 pills a day, now to 2 pills and eventually 1 pill then I'm done. I can drive and feel better when I shower and go outside, so I'm going to do more of that.

All my blood work was normal, so the fatigue I'm feeling is due to nursing a 1 year old on demand; although I am weening him too.

I currently weigh 118lb and dont like it. I keep losing weight and it could be from nursing, not drinking water and/or getting enough rest; although those will change. I will be taking time for myself at least 3 times a week.

I told my doc I want to be in the late 120s. He says women would kill to be where I am but I told him I'm not a teen anymore; I dont have a desire to be skinny, just healthy. I want to feel comfy in my skin.

He says all my stats are fine, so Thank God for Jesus. I'll get through this. And I am so grateful for good doctors who are prompt, non-rushing, and efficient.

I hope you're feeling better soon! :( I empathize with you on being skinny... I have a lot of food allergies & was at 113lbs last week! :( I'm happy to say that I've packed on 5lbs though! So I'm going in the right direction, hoping you're able to put on a few lbs as well!

I'm going to add your blog to my blogroll. :) Hope that's ok!

I'm sorry your aren't feeling well. I hope the pills keep the sinus inflammation gone for good!

I can understand what you mean about the weight. When I lost weight a few years back, I was down to 128. I'm 5'8". That was too skinny for me. My boobs disappeared and my face was so thin. I didn't like it. I'd prefer to be around 135. However, I passed that up about 15 pounds ago. LOL!
