So my doctor pumped me full of all sorts of meds yesterday just trying anything for this cough (Maybe it’s atypical walking pneumonia? Maybe it’s silent reflux?) at this point and if I don’t see an improvement in a week she’s sending me to a specialist. WHEEEEEEE!!!!
She also wants me to stay on 100 mg of Pristiq for 4 weeks. I had just been on the 100 mg for one week and it’s hard to tell after a week if there’s any difference (50mg didn’t do crap) so we’re going to give that a try. Several of you guys made other suggestions and I’m basically going to do the same thing with my mental health that we’re doing with the cough: SEND IN ALL THE TROOPS FOR ALL OF THE MISSIONS! I’m dumping my entire arsenal this week and next in hopes that I’ll feel better by the new year.
Speaking of advice you all gave – I did buy a few more items of clothing to fit this body. I had already bought two pairs of jeans when I hit 155 but even those are now tight again at 170. I really don’t want to buy new pants since I just bought those, so I went out and bought a few new tops that would kinda hang over the top of the tight pants (hiding the muffin top) and yesterday I didn’t hate my body anywhere near as much as before. I went to Ross where I got several new things for under $50 and then I went to Target and bought two new bras and when I came home and put one on it was like hearing angels singing. THANK YOU GUYS FOR INSISTING I DO THAT. If I can stop the weight gain and maybe start pushing things back in the other direction, this should get me through without crying every day when I get dressed!
So here is to taking it one day at a time and using all of the wisdom you guys have shared with me to try to take baby steps toward a better place.
