Okay, RonH is not going to like this, but today I just need to vent a bit.
1. My Trigeminal Neuralgia, which has been calm these last few months, decided to flare up yesterday. This means that just scratching my nose or chewing will cause intense, unbearable, electric-like pains. Yes, there are meds, but the meds make you feel terrible, also, and are not real good for your liver.
2. I am pouring meds like a pharmacist. My atrial fibrillation requires two meds daily, and I take a two meds for hypertension. We are getting ready to travel to Yellowstone Saturday, and I have been "pourong" my meds in preparation for the 8 day trip. I feel as if I am dependent on meds for my very life.
3. I can't get the $%#@$$#@! sleep apnea thingy to work well for me, and I have just given up on it. I don't even think I have SA, but the new doc says I do. Is it worth it to be exhausted during the day from not sleeping beacuse of the sleep apnea treatment so I can be "treated?" Otherwise, I feel and seem to sleep fine. I think the good rest is much more important than the CPAP machine. I really don't know ANYONE who successfully uses one of those thingys on a long-term basis!
Okay, I have spoke my piece.
On the brighter side, I got 3 hours of bicycling in yesterday, and the wife and I did a nice 12 miler today with a deli lunch.
We are leaving Saturday for an 8 day trip to Yellowstone (Gardiner, MT) and are taking our mtn bikes.
Guess things could be worse.
Thanks for listening. I feel better now.
Have a great day!
