I’m not recovering from being sick as quickly as I need to be. My doctor called me last week to check in and asked how things were going – then asked me to come in.
Without getting into specifics, I’m having problems with my lungs and there is permanent damage. I would ignore the problem but since breathing is somewhat important to survival, I have to take care of it. I informed my husband that the side effects from the medications were pretty serious including shaking, high anxiety, excessive hunger, moodiness, and inability to sleep. He responded, ‘How is that different from normal?’
I told him that if his body should mysteriously go missing, no female judge in the world would convict me.
This has blown a bit of a hole in our budget. The medications and co-payments have been expensive.
But there is good news! My doctor thinks my problems may ease over the summer months. Cheers to summer! It can’t get here fast enough can it?
