  1. You tried what they suggested and it didn't work - probably time to call them again.
  2. I'm sorry you're feeling so crappy! What does your surgeon say about the nausea and vomiting?
  3. 1st time to ever post to ANY blog!

    Yay - glad it went so well for you! Congratulations!!
  4. Day 3 Post-Op

    Don't pay attention to how other people are reacting to the surgery. You're you and you'll do great!!!
  5. When do you get out of the hospital

    What a drag that you have to drive so far to get care! At least it's with a physician you trust.
  6. Yes, I'm THAT teacher....

    You rock!!!
  7. Meds

    I'm in the unfortunate position of having the only anti-depressant that works for me not available as a liquid or disintegrating formula, but also being time-release. I'm fortunate that my doc is going to let me take whole as soon as I can swallow it. The only thing is that my psych might need to up the dosage due to absorption issues, but I can handle that. Great tip about the lamictal - I'm sure that will help others who take it.
  8. Dehydration maybe?

    If I were you, I'd check in at the ER just to make sure you can get something to stop your migraine. They can check your hydration level while you're there. Good luck!
  9. Being thin doesn’t make life easy

    What an eye-opening article!
  10. Back Again

    I'm sorry that when you miss one class you have to start all over again!
  11. I have been meaning to do this

    I'm sorry this has been so hard for you. Have you considered some counseling? Sometimes just talking about it with an understanding, qualified listener can be extraordinarily helpful. Good luck on your journey
  12. Dehydration maybe?

    How long have you been waiting for the on-call surgeon?
  13. 4 day migraine

    You should be able to get caffeine pills at the drugstore. Good luck - migraines suck!
  14. They're weird but edible. The only problem I see with them is they have very little nutritional value and will fill you up quickly. They are quite filling.
  15. That's great news! Fingers crossed that this does the trick for you.
