New Meds

We has some! We saw the DSN on Monday, and started Victoza. The injections are painless, which is nice. But the side-effects are making themselves known. We’ve had to change up to a stronger anti-nauseant, or we’d be puking our guts up. Still, gotta just push through it. This med’s too important to stop. We need our diabetes to get under control, and this is the med to do it.

The new anti-puke pill is an old-school anti-psychotic. In lower doses, it’s great for nausea and vomiting. Our doc gave us a higher dose than we were expecting though. It’s in the range for anxiety, which is a huge added bonus. Thing is, it’s knocking us out! Between the Stemetil and the Victoza, we’re a huge bundle of dopiness and fatigue. We just want to sleep all the time, and when we’re not sleeping, we’re doped to the gills!

It’s a good thing that we bought some pasta and pizza, because that’s about the limit of P’s cooking skills, and we’re not up to it at all! So at least he can feed the kids! P’s being wonderful though, as usual, and is doing all the things we usually do, so that we can sleep, and wait for the side-effects to wear off. We’d be fucked without him, he’s amazing *wubs*

So here we are, at 4am, while the rest of the house sleeps, watching Wimbledon from yesterday, and drinking fizzy grapefruit juice. With the air-con on coz it’s muggy and horrible. I’m sure I had more to say, but the brain’s shut down on me! I can feel my IQ dropping! I hate that.
