I just have to answer this one for myself, before I drive myself crazy. I didn’t take my last PD med last night, and I haven’t had any this morning. It will take awhile for the meds to flush out of my system, but I need to know what I look like without them. It’s just like most of the meds you see advertised on TV. Take this pill to stop twitching, but oh, by the way, this pill can cause twitching!!! So, if I didn’t need them, they would give me the same symptoms as someone who did need them. Like I said, my brain is going around in circles over this, so I may not be making good sense right now.
I’m going to be in the house all day today, and I wanted to settle my mind on this before it was Christmas. It wouldn’t do me any good to try to wait until after the New Year to experiment, because I start physical therapy for my neck on Jan. 2, and I sure wouldn’t want to be playing around with my dosages then.
Of course I am still on all the other meds I take, for my digestive system, allergies, and bone density, plus the vitamins and herbs for general health and anti-oxidant benefits. Who knows, maybe that’s all I need to be on, anyway. I hope to find out with this little experiment.
We will be spending time with our older daughter and son-in-law here in town Christmas Eve, and then we’ll drive to our younger daughter’s home to spend with our grandchildren and her hubby. Then, a few days later, we’ll be driving back for our grandson’s birthday.
I don’t want this nagging doubt hanging over me. I want to enjoy this family time, and the celebration of the birth of Jesus, without obsessing over this, the way I have the last few days. So, it’s do without today, and maybe tomorrow, too, or wait until February or so. And I just emotionally can’t wait that long. Did I say that patience is not one of my virtues?
