I don't salt anything. Habit from having high blood pressure since I was 18. I feel cold, but I chalked that up to moving from South Texas to Northeast Indiana at the end of January. I'll start taking my temp.
I have an appointment with the shrink on 4/7/11. I'll try to get off of it then.
No blows to the head or whiplash. I was working 14 hour days outside in 100 degree heat and eating only once or twice a day. I went from doing that to sitting at home eating all day.
During the last few months with the weight gain, I've eaten a typically shitty diet. Last week I went on a low carb diet with a Saturday cheat meal. I was on day 6 of no carbs when I had my labs done. I'm curious if my Glucose was high considering that. Supplements are fish oil, vitamin, and Black Mamba on days that I have to actually accomplish something:
I was beginning to swing up into a manic episode at the end of October. At that time I was taken off of Lamictal 100mg, my Cymbalta intake was cut from 120mg to 60mg, the Abilify was upped from 15mg to 20mg, and the Lorazepam 2mg was added.
I really don't know if they've changed or not. The do stay up tight against my body 99% of the time. Haven't had a fever in forever, so not sure if they ache or not.
My daughter caused us a lot of aggravation during this time and was sent to Indiana to live with her grandmother. My wife was a mess after making the decision and decided that we were going to move to Indiana, too. That meant selling our house, uprooting our son, and losing two good paying jobs. I also wasn't sleeping well with the long hours I was working 6 days a week. That tends to throw me into a manic or hypomanic state.
We up and moved in late January. Leaving Texas for Indiana is a stress in and of itself. We are living with my inlaws while we wait on our house to sell. I'm still unemployed.
I took 4-ad and MAG-10 back years ago. That is it.
No loss of vision that I've noticed. Have good insurance through my wife's work as a nurse at a hospital. Thank god, right, with all the meds I'm on.
Thanks again for you input. I've got an appointment with on Endocrinologist on April 6. I talked to his nurse yesterday and she said he doesn't have any issues with prescribing injections if they are needed. I have to go fasted, so I assume he's doing bloodwork at that time. I have a follow up appointment on April 20 when I assume he'll go over the results of the bloodwork. Until then I'm reading everything I can get my hands on (and hopefully understand).
Edit to add that I have obstructive sleep apnea and a CPAP machine. Honestly, though I take the mask off during the night in my sleep so I don't know how much I actually use it.
