My body has turned on me. First, it was the pain which led to a trip to the ER. Since then, it’s been missing work, poor appetite, poor digestion and my inability to sleep which of course is a close friend to my strange dreams. Today, however, today takes the cake!
Not only was I up until past 4am unable to sleep, I have spent literally ALL DAY in bed, trying not to accidentally overdose on Tylenol Extra-Strength rapid release capsules (the Walgreens brand). Hasn’t anyone ever told them that 8 gel caps in 24hrs isn’t actually an overdose??? Wait, 8 capsules is actually 4000mg so yeah, I guess they’re right. Still, I’m not feeling much better and I’m irritated coz I thought the max was 10 gel caps. Now I find out it’s 8 so that means I have to wait this out another few hours to take my last two for the day. Never have I wanted more pills than I do now! I wanna cry 😦
My doctor said that if I felt worse I should go back to the ER or wait until tomorrow to go and see him. I don’t like to be a drama queen but I’m seriously thinking of going to see him in his office. I’ve this fear that I’m gonna get there and he’s going to examine me and think “this girl is nothing but a drama queen.” Worse, this pain will magically disappear by the time I get there, then it’ll go back to – you guess it: I’m a drama queen! On the other hand, I’m determined to avoid the ER so maybe I should go see him tomorrow. If I miss tomorrow, I can go on Tuesday.
I think I have to go tomorrow. I don’t know how much more of this I can take. Until then, I’ll take my last two gel caps for the day – in the next 2-4 hours so I can hopefully get better sleep tonight than last night.
Someone please tell me you’re having a better night than I am.
