I went to work last weekend and it was horrible. We worked short and I felt like crap. And then with the mood swings with the prednisone, I really did not like myself. And then I could not sleep because of the prednisone.So, I had to take a med to sleep which made me very thirsty. And I had a confrontation with a supervisor and a co worker from the other side of the unit about the lack of staffing of my side of the unit.I did not get a break on Sat night. Then I was exposed to a radioactive urine splash and had to talk to the safety officer Monday AM so he could reassure me with a geiger counter that I was safe. And my period decided to return this month. So, hormones from hell.

I went to the ENT Monday but it was a mistake. My husband was given that date but my appt is not until this coming Monday, the 18th. So, I will see him this Monday. Meanwhile, the ringing in my ears and the pounding heart beat in my head continues. The antibiotic is killing my stomach so I am taking acidolophus. I am still having headaches from hell periodically as the med wears off. I am on nasal steroids and antibiotic. My vision occasionally distorts when my head is pounding. And since I returned to work, I pulled a tendon on my dominant wrist and it is sore and the prednisone is no longer in my system so my knee pain is back and I misstepped and have a new pain below my knee.

My eating is okay not great but I am so thirsty from meds, I am now drinking water and soda and still thirsty. And I have not returned to the gym. I am past frustration. meanwhile, all this crap is making my head (depression and ocd) worsen. So, I am a little self destructive. So, my talk doc and med doc are concerned enough to ask if I am suicidal and since I learn my lessons well, and don't want another involuntary stay at St Vinny's, I decline to answer so my doc visits are more frequent for a time being...This is not a good day, nor week, nor month nor year...

    so sorry you are having these problems................perhaps looking into a disability pension might help you with working so hard etc...........that is what i did as i could no longer manage working 10 hour shifts with the knee problems is the best thing i did for myself................i feel so much better having that part of my life removed so i could concentrate on myself and getting better................wishing that you are better soon or at the very least more stable at any are in my daily prayers...................take care as there is only one of you..................sending blessings and hugs......................lita
