[Current Mood |nauseatednauseated]

I'm having a really rough transition to Cymbalta. We had to rush out from lunch as I threw up barely making it to the bathroom in time, which was awful. I don't want to talk much and as much as I want to put on a few pounds I sit here sipping lemon ginger tea TRYING to not throw up more.

It is going to be a rough few weeks, not to mention throwing up when your stomach muscles have been resewn just a month ago hurts SO bad I can't explain. OUCH. My doctor has not given me further pain medication despite the fact I still have increased pain, so that is tough as well.

So, if I'm less fun, and less present, please know why. I'm doing all I can not to throw up so I can adjust to my new medication and hopefully be in less pain. I've heard the nausea does subside and I'm going to try shifting to taking it at night along with an ambien, so hopefully that will work as I'm not eating at night.

Also, last week at work I forgot my lipgloss (ANY of it) one day and went to work without mascara one other day. I'm still not back to myself. The increased pain and tiredness from the surgery still lingers.

I just want my friends and family to know what I'm dealing with so you can understand that it isn't you.

God, that's just a great big pile of suck. :*( I am so sorry. I think your plan of taking it at night is a smart idea, and I hope that helps!

Let me know if you're still up for company tomorrow. I'd love some mellow time with you, if you're feeling ok enough.

I love you.

I'm back on my "safe list". If you can remind me or maybe take me out to the smoothie place to keep getting in some calories that don't make me hurl, it would help me. Seeing you would raise my spirits for sure!

I love you too!

My Mom came in and made me a smoothie tonight, so I got dinner. :) I'm beat, but hopefully tomorrow will be better. Angela and Heather will be joining us later in the afternoon, but I understand you may be leaving before then depending on your later plans. *hugs*

I'm so sorry you're feeling like crap. I'm sending virtual gentle hugs and I have two shoulders to cry on if you need 'em.

Things will get better, even though it feels like endless b.s. and hurt now.

Thank you. I can't imagine feeling this way for 4 months. Feel so bad for pregnant mothers now.

You're going to do what??

Your plan is to take medication before bed that gives you nausea along with a sleeping pill that will make it less likely that you'll wake up if you do vomit?
