Well with this muscle weakness, breathing and the whole week anxiety back I went ahead and called for an appointment yesterday and was pleasantly surprised I was able to get in yesterday afternoon. It was with the Nurse Practitioner I saw last year, I’m beginning to wonder if my doctor really exists. Typically appointment though, I talked she listend and said ok ok many times. Listen to the ticker and then another batch of blood work, damn vampires.
She did up my Zoloft to 100mg, to her 50 was a low beginning dose. So after about 5-6 weeks on the 50 I started the new dose today and we shall see. She also gave me more lorazepam, more for nights though she said to help me sleep. I haven been sleeping to well, waking up about one then off an on till about 5 then Im up. Problem is anxiety is not keeping me awake, I just dont sleep. Also when I take it during the day for anxiety episodes I don’t get tired either. Oh well I’ll give it a shot.
I did ask if the Prilosec could be causing some of the fatigue and weakness but never really got an answer. Guess we’ll cross that bridge after the endo this week and see if and how bad there is reflux.
Over all this time is not as bad as April/May just really tiring. In fact its the breathing and fatigue that has me more worried. So for now I’m just taking it easy. Spreading my work load through out the day and taking lots of little breaks. Still doing my walks of 1.5-3+ miles a day. Ive moved them to the mornings when its cooler now. Also been doing the mountain Sunday mornings as a capper and taking mondays off.
Been kind of lazy with the meditations though, need to start those back up again. And lastly still waiting for that second appointment with the therapist (first one was back in June) it is scheduled for early Aug. They have called a couple times with a cancellation but it was always last min “can you come in in 2 hours” thing and I always had something going on.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Relax and take it easy! I know things will be getting better!
