I’ve hit a creative brick wall in everything non-essential, such as my client work. For someone with over 1,400 blog posts over the last 5 years, it’s pretty stinking weird to be out of words to say. This is the best I can do today before my Silent Sunday post and my What CFers do for Monday. At least those are easy to come up with!
This week involved the discovery that Dulcolax is now an essential medicine for me, though I won’t go into how I found out. What matters most is that it’s strange how many of these meds I’ve started taking since becoming so compliant have now made themselves essential to normal functioning. The doctors have me on one in the morning and one at night, and I can say that not taking it because I feel like my body is behaving and it’s not necessary is not an option.
- ADEK – Previously untaken at all, we are pretty sure that this is one of the contributing factors to the complete cessation of hemoptysis since March.
- Fish oil – Beautiful read that it helps with inflammation issues, so I started taking it last year, but got into the routine with the rest of my stuff… and may be another factor in the end bleeding.
- Prilosec – I used to just take Zantac 150 as needed, which wasn’t very often. Then I started to need it every day. Then a couple of times per day without any complete relief from my symptoms. Prilosec in the morning is now an absolute necessity.
- Advair HFA – My “rescue” inhaler used to be Xopenex, but it was a $50 co-pay, so I asked for an alternative. I do my Diskus 500/50 twice per day and my HFA twice per day for pretty even relief.
What have you started at some point recently that you can’t do without now?
