An Unwelcomed Medication Side Effect

Far out I have had such a bad night last night. My (new) GP gave me a sample of an anti-inflammatory to help with all my joint pain. I have had such pain upon waking. I had been wondering if it was arthritis or perhaps even psoriatic arthritis considering I have had psoriasis for 40 years. (Although I am only 29 it surprises me :P )

Anyway, I took some of this new med on Friday night and also last night. Within 3 hours of taking it my stomach was feeling rather horrid. The first night I though okay maybe it's just colic or something I ate. It wasn't too bad just lots of grumbling and some belching but last night was definitely worse. It was up and down all night in pain and I hate to say it but I was throwing up too. I have to admit I did feel better after I had been sick. I did check my BGL afterwards and it was within my 'normal' range. It is also fine this morning when I checked it. Although I am a little worried about eating anything.

I still feel yucky and tired. I decided that due to this I am unable to attend Church today. Which is upsetting me. I am unable to teach my Sunday school class, again. I hate to say this but I feel I am becoming very unreliable where that is concerned. Those poor kids will be placed in another class for another Sunday.
Also, last week I arranged to talk with the Bishop this week. I needed to talk with him and now I am unable to. He will probably think I dodging him on purpose. I don't him to think that at all :'( Gosh I feel like I am always letting others down. I hate it.

Back to the new medication, I will NOT be taking another dose tonight. I am not going to put up with that horrible stomach pain again. Mark suggested I phone the surgery and speak to the practice nurse tomorrow and see what she says. It is probably a really good idea. I just want to be pain free.

Video: What A Talented Little Girl

This little girl is just adorable! 
The judges said that America will fall in love with her. Personally, I think the whole world will.
Heavenly Joy is just super cute! I think she will definitely have a future in music or musical theatre.

I Bought A New Pattern With Dinosaurs

You know how I said I wouldn't be making a blanket for a while. I think I might just have to. My favourite blanket designer, Teri Heathcote, from Knot Your Nana's Crochet has made up this cute dinosaur blanket.
Of course I just had to purchase the patterns for the appliques.
I mean look how cute this is!!

Guess what's on my To Do list ...

Thankful Thursday

Here's what I am thankful for this week:
  • sunny days
  • crocheting

  • a very talkative Trippy cat. He miaows non-stop if you talk to him and has such a lovely special purr when he is content
  • online shopping ... you can find so many bargains
  • surviving - both the boys are home .. enough said there I think

What are you thankful for this week?
