IF YOU AIN`T GOT RELIGION IN YOUR FEET, YOU CAN DO THIS PRANCE AND DO IT NEAT.

I have not written about this yet...but I am trying a new medicine...Lamictal. So, I am not (supposed to be) taking my Prozac any more...

I have been in a really bad mood this week...really tired, really anxious and really (really) grumpy...and this morning I figured out why. All this week, when I thought that I was taking my previcid pills (for acid reflux) I was taking Prozac. The previcid is brown and pink and the Prozac is brown and green. I grabbed the bottle this morning to refill (what I thought was) the previcid and I was holding the Prozac. I feel like SUCH an idiot!

I read the side effects and sure enough...all of the side effects I have been having have are mentioned with the combination of these two meds.

A (small) part of me is somewhat relieved b/c I thought the Lamictal was making me like this and I was upset b/c my therapist really thought the Lamictal would be great for me.

On to bigger and better things...

I skipped the rubber chicken dinner on Tuesday night (in fear I might growl at someone) and went to the BX and did the elliptical. Since then I have been getting cramps in my right calf and tibialis muscle. Took it easy yesterday and I really worked on it this morning b/c the cramping kept me up last night. Hoping that it will work itself out soon.


Scott and I are heading to watch the Mocs in the Southern Conference tournament this weekend. There is no telling what our team will do...they have been very inconsistent and unpredictable this season. They have also been through a lot of injuries and adversities that I hope will help them to be a stronger tournament team. To win the conference we have to make it through Davidson, and Stephen Curry, who are ranked 25 in the country in the latest poll! Our girls are undefeated and I hope that they don't fall to the same curse the Pat's did. They SHOULD win it all.

I am really looking forward to the trip because I LOVE Charleston!

Take Care

Good luck to the team! I hope they do well. And I hope you are in better spirits now that you worked out the pill mix up!

Be careful with those meds...I've heard lots of bad things from mixing things up, taking things late (a friend is on effexor and found if she takes it at the wrong time with something else she takes and then has a drink...uh oh...). I think I've found my BC that I take, a generic, wish I could afford the real version of this one, makes me more emotional...I hate that. I knew it was a potential side effect but I really, really like the way it's packaged and want to stay on it, but it's not worth feeling like crying all the time (although I'm too lazy to complain and get it changed which I doubt my pharamcy, online, would do anyway since I had had the script written for a specific form of generic and they didn't fill with that)

brown and pink, brown and green. they simply SHOULD make them easier to tell apart, if you ask me.
