Hi, are you here?
I am here
good, how are you feeling?
only Tuesday, can't be tired till tomorrow!!!
what do you think is making you feel tired?
are you sleeping well?
haha, yes I know,
although that could partly be from all that I've been doing. I did hike a hill yesterday to see a beacon being lit.
a hike up a hill can do that!
I have had some side effects from the meds.
and none of them have been good. I nearly fainted at the weekend.
felt better soon after though and went through with some plans that I had later that day.
well that is pretty common for most people and they will go away once your body adjusts. Feeling faint, what happened? Had you eaten?
I would suggest you write any significant side effects down and when you see the doctor let her know. By that time though they will probably have stopped.
yes I had eaten, possibly not enough, but I had all the same. I felt really nauseous first then felt really faint.
I am persevering with them, as you say it is only Tuesday and not had them for long, then only another 6 pills to go until the following month.
Well I am not an MD so I have to say this is out of my expertise, you may want to check with a MD on JA about this particular situation or wait until you see how you feel after this month.
I was just trying to answer your question. I'm trying to monitor myself.
Ok, just want to reinforce my "role" here!
I keep hoping as it was only, so far, that bad once that it is just my body adjusting.
sorry, didn't mean to sound harsh.
Well then that's positive right?
it is, just try and not focus on it or worry about it. Take it and move through your day.
think it that day at the weekend just really threw me a bit, that's all.
the more you think about it the more your mind may find "effects". I had a routine physical yesterday and needed a tetnus booster, the nurse started talking side effects and I stopped her. Told her not to tell me or I'd have them!!!
how are you by the way, thanks for letting me know about the book in feedback recently.
so did you have it done? the booster?
I'm good, glad to tell you about the book. I had no idea there were so many in the series! Just finished number 6.
yes, I got the shot and no side effects.....
nor did I actually.
I am glad you didn't have any side effects and that you are feeling good.
if you tell someone this or that can happen, it usually does! any twitch, ache or pain get attributed to side effects.
so other than that one time you are okay? do you notice any changes in mood?
not at the moment I don't think.
not really sure.
it may be subtle and it may take more than one round of meds to make a difference. So just try not to focus too much on it.
just been trying to get past the side effects and how I don't have the energy levels I once had in some ways.
ok, have to run, hope you are having a good week, tired or not, take some deep breaths and fill up your lungs with some oxygen! that will help as will a cup of tea!!!
thanks for chatting
hope your day goes well, glad we caught each other.
it may be your energy level is naturally depleted due to your cycle. ok, talk to you soon.
Dear Dr. Keane, thank you for chatting yesterday. When not feeling nausea and light-headed, like I did again this morning I am having a good week. I am trying to push through some of the drugged up feelings. I have a lot to do tonight so I am trying to get on with things the best I can. Oh and you are right, my natural energy levels do sometimes naturally deplete or reduce a bit during the cycle, it just felt different, more extreme, that's all, am less tired today. I just wanted to write this here as I realised I hadn't responded to you properly when you kindly hoped I was having a good week. I have had some work successes. I hope you are having a good week. I will talk to you soon.
