This morning I was still pretty tired once the kids were off to school. So I did the usual and went back to bed for a while. I still have a bit of nausea, but it’s definitely not as bad as it was last week!! I now believe that last it was super bad because I stopped my antidepressants cold-turkey!! Our stupid health insurance company still hadn’t fixed the situation with cutting us off prematurely, so we had no insurance. I didn’t refill the prescriptions because of the lack of insurance. I am pretty certain that that medication needs to be stopped very gradually, not the way I stopped it! I think my system was out of whack. I had been on those antidepressants for years and suddenly I wasn’t taking them. The funny thing is that I didn’t and still don’t notice a difference in my mood. So, once we received our new non-group Blue Cross insurance and I was able to get prescriptions again, I decided not to restart those ones. I don’t believe that I need them anymore. My TN isn’t severe right now, knock on wood, and I am no longer depressed. Yay! So, since they’re out of my system already it didn’t really make much sense to start them again. I have a lab requisition from the dr who gave me the antibiotics for the Protozoa that are, or, hopefully, were squirming around in my tummy. She wants to retest to be certain that they’re gone. It’s not a very pleasant test, but I guess I should do it. I’m still not 100%, even though I completed the round of antibiotics, so I guess we should know if I am still nauseous because they’re still there or if it’s related to something completely different.
Once I got up from my nap I went downstairs and had something to eat. After eating, I went on my phone for a while and talked with my hubby. My daughter left for work. She’s at the Southgate store today. She’s actually in her own store in the new outlet mall on Thursday and Friday this week. The new mall opens next week. They are anticipating that it’s going to be ridiculously busy for the first bit. So busy that employees are parking at the airport and being shuttled to the mall for the first couple of weeks! Crazy!! So far she’s enjoying the job and quickly learning all she needs for the supervisor position that she accepted. I believe it will be a lot less stress than the airport job was, which will be good for her. My hubby went to get the kids from school while I got ready to go. I drove my daughter to dance and then I went to Winners for a bit. I love Winners!! Then I went to my mom and dad’s. We tried to find out what was going on in Beaumont with one of the schools being locked down. It was after 5:00 and the kids hadn’t been released yet. Later we found out that a man in a house close by had a firearm and the police were trying to get inside. Due to the dangerous situation, they didn’t want kids walking home in the area. They ended up walking the kids to Eaglemont church and the parents had to show ID to pick up their kiddos. Kind of a frightening situation. They were just trying to keep everyone safe. My parents and I had supper and visited for a bit. Then I went to pick up my daughter from dance. We drove home. Once we were here, I changed and went downstairs on the treadmill for about 45 minutes. Then I had a speedy shower and got ready for bed. Now I’m going to crash. Night All! 💤😴
