oh no - we newbies scared them off LOL
well the apptmt with the doc was interesting. i got sent off for a batch of blood tests (yuck) and have a new antidepressant. i am going back on venlafaxine/effexor to see if that helps my anxiety and reduces nightmares. it takes 3 days to wash the old drugs out of my system and then i can start. i didn't tell her i didn't take my usual meds last night so i am already a day ahead
i'm supposed to cut back a little each day but i can't be bothered
get this - i drink TOO MUCh water. i drink 2-3 litres a day. she said thats excessive and i am probably putting too much burden on my kidneys when i regularly drink 3litres. so i have to cut back. that will be hard i love fluids. will help with the sleep tho as my bladder won't be urging me to get up so that's a plus
i'm with you guys i need someone to stop me eating. a couple of my friends are keen to help but my family are offended if i don't dig into all their roast chick and veges slathered in lard, or if i say i don't want fish n chips for dinner and want something healthier. they don't understand i'm not turning down them, just the food
. of course what i really need is someone to wire my jaw shut so i am forced to behave myself. altho i am thinking i could still have milkshakes?
diane i can relate. my ticker still says 82kg but i have gone back to 83kg so i have to start over too and it's desperately frustrating. esp as a lot of the time i thought i was eating better. my mistake was i thought this is healthy so i can tuck in and have as much as i want. doesn't work out that way
we've had series 1 of BL here but i haven't seen those specials. i think having a buddy would be a help but as we don't have real life ones we need to try and help each other here online. also i try to use journalling as if i am being a buddy to myself and counselling myself.make sense?
