Kitties are mad because we dosed them with Advantage today.

I'm so groggy and I can't stop clenching my jaw I'm so tense. I'm going to cause a TMJ flareup if I don't simmer down.

So much going on, but still, I ate something. Going to make a south beach diet meal now. :)

I have new exercises to do daily and I'm loving them. I hate physical therapy itself on the days I have to go because it hurts, but the exercises are cool and it's helping a bit already. I have less of the "shooting" pain, although the burning pain remains.

Also, I wanted to say, if I don't reply to YOUR comments, please know that it isn't personal and there is a 90% chance that it's the timing. Especially if I get your comment at night. I'm so tired on this medication that I get easily confused. I've missed many comments if I get them and it's evening. If you really need to talk, email me directly and I won't miss it. If you want to talk on the phone, try to call me before 8pm. I'm super tired and usually not good for much after that. That's just where I'm at right now. Hopefully as I get used to the meds I'll improve.

If you don't consume calories, you get tired (as much as by taking the medication). Is there anyway that someone can help you to remember to eat/ prep small snacks?

Craig is going to help. We are going grocery shopping. I do GREAT when I have my protein bars and everything set up to pack lunch, but being gone over the weekend I got way behind. I also think I caught a virus. My co-workers are all sick and I just wrote in sick to work and took a 3 hour nap. I now feel much better.

Not eating, weight loss, and anorexia are known side effects of Cymbalta too. :(

Physically, I'm fine. Emetionally/mentally - just trying to comparmentalize and keep too busy to think about all the crazy stuff happening now.

Surgery will be on Tuesday (day after Labor Day) - we leave for Pittsburgh on Monday.

*hugs* I'll be sending the extra positive thoughts on Tuesday for you. Really tough time all around.

I'm totally with you on trying to focus on just one thing at a time to get through it.

I did see your post on the clothes, but I'm broke, so need to wait.
