I think I'm alive again...

After that test I had on Friday, I was pretty miserable. That night my legs were still hurting and I could still feel those "zings". They were also jerking some, it was driving me nuts. I took everything I had to try to sleep so I could get thru the night. After Tylenol PM's, Vicodin and ibuprofin, I finally remembered I had some Rozerem (a sleep RX) . So I took one of those with a Xanax and I feel asleep after 5 am (which is almost my regular time anyway !) . I slept literally all day Saturday and barely was awake on Sunday. I still don't know what's wrong with me, but this wasn't fun.

Today I finally got up and took a shower (I'm sure the big guy will be grateful) and got moving around some again. It's easy to tell when I haven't been downstairs for a few days (and the natives take over). Needless to say I had to do some quick sweeping, vacuuming (and laundry etc) so I could rest better today. I also got the checkbook balanced after not writing anything down for about a week, (darn debit cards!) I swear, I think I'm really losing it. I wrote things down that I thought I had paid online already, and today I checked and I never paid them!! I'm really scaring myself with my forgetfulness! Well, at least I have some yarn and got these done (which took forever in between all the Christmas Knitting):


My Girls Best Friend Anklets done in Lorna's Laces Old Rose. They're soooo cushy and soft. I think I'm going to send them to my Mom....I almost want to keep them....I'll have to make another pair soon! LOL!
Okay, I'm off to finish some laundry and "try" to work on a couple of quick IPOD cozies for the girls. I'm not sure what to use, but we don't have a shortage of yarn so that's not a problem.....

Man it sounds like you had a horrible weekend! I wish/pray they'd find out whats wrong and fix it so you can start feeling better...feeling normal...its been so long you won't even know what normal feels like.

Your socks are beautiful....love, love, love the color. So pretty!

Take care of yourself!

What a horrible test you had done....do these doctors ever test themselves I wonder, so they know what it is we are being put through??
I think that should be a park of their training. (((HUGS)))


Your Girls Best Friend Anklets turned out wonderful...I should really pull mine out and start them.

Oh gosh ladies, don't ever get a nerve test done. I did it just to rule out any muscle issues but figured it wouldn't show anything (and I think I'm right). It's funny, he did say that I wouldn't have any "redsidual" pain or issues afterwards, but I swear I could see my nerves jerking in my legs so I know it wasn't all in my head! My legs hurt anyway, I think it just magnified the problem 10 fold! Bad Neurologist! Bad!!! grrr

Sorry you had such a bad weekend. And I hope you are feeling better soon. I'm in a similar situation at the moment going back and forward to hospital for endless tests - it sucks!

But on a more positive note those socks are gorgeous!
