___________________________

it's been another rough week.
i had a bad episode at 6am thursday morning.

an ER visit took place.

upon waking 
my bp was 153 over 98.

 when the EMT arrived
it was 158 over 112
pulse was 112 bpm.

my doctor told me the day b4
"to take valium for the muscle spasms; i didn't need my
klonopin
(that i take for anxiety to sleep, due to pain)
because
it was basically the same thing"
(similar, but NOT the same - valium is a muscle relaxer - klonopin is for anxiety)

i told her "i thought i should take them together
(like i was told to do by another doc over a month ago, and worked well)
because i've been taking it 4 so long
i can't just stop!"
but she said 
"No
you don't need both."
so i went against what i new to be right.

after 5 hours in the 
ER
a good dose of 
morphine & liq valium
i finally came home.
with
ANOTHER 
script
for vicodin.

i decided 
after 4 different answers
from 1 doctor & 3 nurses in the ER
and the one from
my doctor
about these meds
i will do 
what
my instincts 
told me to do to begin-with.

take what i know!

the vicodin will be kept around in-case
of an emergency
but 
will most likely
get tossed
in the end.

holds breath until april 8th for the spine institutes visit...

PS ~ 
Jamie went out and purchased a huge ~ stiff foam wedge slant pillow thingy
for me to lay back on
(which works great for my back)
&
an 
oh-so-soft
(but perfectly firm enough)
neck pillow
that can hold heat or ice.
They work perfectly together.

Love the earrings and so sorry to hear about your back!!! Glad to hear that you are figuring out what works for you though, sometimes we need to take the dr.s orders with a grain of salt.
