I am not doing too bad tonight other than being tired. And (drumroll please) I am actually hungry!
Hopefully they will get to the bottom of things with all those tests. Take care!

Hoping to be able to log on here but probably not so much for a week or so. Got a 6 day stretch without a day off & some 12 and 16 hour shifts thrown in. Happy cooking all. I will miss your delicious posts, but gotta work to eat.

I have been on Gabapentin for a number of years now. It is a drug that is used for pain and seizures. I was put on it for my leg before I had the graft surgery and the wound was wide open. If the word "seizure" wasn't there, I would have no problem taking this drug. It is a life saver when my leg wants to act up. It is worse than restless leg syndrome. My leg starts to jerk all over the place and not good thing when you are walking. So, brilliant me, I decide to wean myself off and see if I can't control my leg with just my mind and will power. Can you say Stupid Idiot?

So I was about 48 hours without taking the drug. I think I left my mind with the untaken pills. From here on in, I don't care what label is attached to this drug. I will not be missing any more doses. I woke up in such pain and my leg going on me. I could not get it under control with my mind or will power. So much for that bright idea. If I come up with any more, I will pass them on, and one of you can try it out for me.

Yes, Ma, I know you love me and it means the world! I am getting a lot from the pain management classes. We only have three left and tomorrow afternoon is my discharge plan meeting. I am working on it tonight - all the steps I am going to take and what safeguards are in place if I have a flare up or can't handle the plan for other reasons. I am actually having fun with it - it is exciting to know that with just a few decisions and commitments I can live a fairly normal life despite my pain.

I am heading to the farmers market in search of Memorial Day pots for the various cemeteries.

This year the timing is perfect, I can get in early to spend a few minutes with my dead relatives and miss the living ones!

I am getting ready to head to my pain program. Today is my discharge interview (then just 2 more sessions next week) and I think I have gotten everything ready for that. I am starting to feel like it is making a difference in my life. I will never be without the pain and some forms of it will only get worse, but I know I can handle it now and still have a great quality of life.
