So, exactly two weeks after I stopped taking digoxin, I had a really good day on Tuesday. Quite bizarrely, since on Monday, I still felt like crap.
It's something I've noticed occasionally over the past few years, typically when I've had a virus on top of my "usual." When I finally get over the hump of being sick on top of being sick, I get a miraculous day where I feel good. Better than good. Approaching great.
And then I slide back downhill to my "usual."
The good news is I am back to sleeping closer to 12 hours a day than the 16 to 20 I was needing with the digoxin. I've lost the nausea, and my pain levels are back to approaching tolerable. (Boy, if you'd told me five years ago, I'd think these pain levels were tolerable, I'd have laughed and told you that you were crazy. But c'est la vie.)
I can focus again to read -- which is good, because my library hold on an e-copy of A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire), book three in the series better known as the Game of Thrones just came up for me this week. :)
Meanwhile, my poor little Etsy store has been sitting virtually untouched for a month or so. Time to try to get busy, I guess. Just in time for the end-of-school craziness. (Ellie has a gymnastics mini Olympics next weekend, the following weekend is roller skating's Regional competition for both Scott & Ellie, three of Ellie's friends are having birthday parties in the next two weeks, end-of-year teacher gifts need time and attention, we have a grad party to go to ... and that doesn't even include school functions! Way too much on our plates.)
Extreme Fatigue - Exhaustion. Fatigue. Lethargy. Weariness. It's so much more than just being tired... And it hasn't been this bad in a very long time... it's so intens...
