I don't seem to be healing very fast.

I feel worse rather than better.

About my mother, I mean.

As far as my drug regime and fibromyalgia, I got a message today, a RECORDED message from MEDCO that they had approved my taking some drug. They didn't say which drug. I haven't got the energy to call and ask. I'll wait to hear from the doctor. I've been making too many calls as it is.

The night before last I took one Rozerem and one Ambien. Yesterday I felt fairly well and pain free until a few minutes after I got back from Graham's piano lesson--I had to drive him 'cause Keith had to work late--and I had ONE SIP of Keith's beer and immdiately felt ill and just got worse and worse and worse as the night progessed. I was very sick by bedtime. I have no idea if the beer had anything to do with it or if I had just reached some threshold of exhaustion or some belated reaction to something I'd eaten sometime int he past. You can bet there won't be any beer sharing tonight though!

The photo is part of my sidewalk series, which is getting quite long. I have only posted a tiny portion of them. I just don't have time.

As far as your mom is concerned, you've had so many things to take care of that you haven't had a chance to grieve properly. It will take time.

I hope you can find some drugs that help you feel better.

And the bandaid is gross.

Thank you and thank.

The original picture of the bandaid wasn't as gross at that--I made it worse becase I was feeling so bad--sorry.

Ha! I love that you grossed up the bandaid even more. Erin is right about grieving taking time. You've been so busy with the details, you haven't even had time to really start the process yet.

About the drugs and the alcohol, I would be very careful about mixing them. Not to say that it can't be done; in most cases there is likely no interaction at all. But certain medications do not mix well with the boozy stuff. Add that to the list of things to ask doc about.

My husband died over five years ago. Some people [including myself] feel that I'm not healing very fast either. If there's one thing I've learned, it's that you can't make yourself heal fast no matter how much you want to. Sometimes we're just not ready to, but I'm positive that eventually we will in our own time and in our own way.

Thanks for the info on It looks interesting, and I think I'll sign up. And, thanks for all your comments.

Thanks, Blue Rose. I'm sorry about the loss of your husband! I hope when the time is right you will heal. Me too.

I don't drink much; I rarely have a drink. But occasionally I have a drink with Keith. I'm trying to remember not to drink at all.
