So I realized this morning while slowly waking up, that since the hospital in January, I've gone from taking 9 meds a day plus regular chemo, to now taking only 6, (and one of those is birth control, which if not sick I might be on anyway, and the other is Calcium/D3 so it doesn't "count" as it's a vitamin. ; ). I'm also taking the new maintenance drug, Rituximab and from now on, it's only one infusion every 5 1/2 months. Yummmm.
Two of the above turfed meds were for blood pressure and I'm so glad to have gotten those outta the loop. I quite hated being on THREE different kinds of BP meds after a life of never having high blood pressure--aside from just before the crash.
Liking too that even though I was prescribed some interesting pain killers called Acupan, (can't take codeine nor NSAIDS), I haven't taken any in months, preferring now to manage the joint pain with heating pads or massage and/or simply lying down, (as it's often the back), all sans more drugs.
That and just takin' it easy when it's simply the most prudent thing to do. That's a hard one to get the noodle around, this constant re-realizing that the things I was once did without a second thought, I now must break up into chunks and spread out over days.
Yup, things, bit by bit are a-changing and I'm so glad for it all. Nice how it's all starting to feel a lil better right around birthday time too. Helluva gift, I say 'n thanks!
On that note, on with the rest of the day here.
Be well, All +++vibes,
