I had an entirely different post planned for this evening! I will, I hope, post it tomorrow morning. It is just a short, but positive, post about a change in my focus. It will have to wait.
Right now, I want to complain.
I am having stomach cramps and I am upset, because they were completely avoidable.
I ran out of Tykerb, because I could not renew my prescription, because my approval had expired, and my health fund would not even ORDER the drugs until my approval was renewed, so I had to wait even longer, and I ran out of pills. (you can read about this outrageous incident here)
So, for several days, I did not take Tykerb.
Well, my stomach must have liked the "rest," because it is really objecting to the fact that I resumed taking this medication.
I started taking Tykerb again on Tuesday, and my stomach has been wreaking havoc on me, ever since!
The Imodium/Stop-it helps with diarrhea, but it has not alleviated the terrible cramping.
I would not have been experiencing this if I had not stopped and restarted treatment.
I had stomach problems from the Tykerb before, but not like this.
I know it will go away.
My body will reach a balance, like before, tenuous as it seemed.
Meanwhile, I just need to breathe and relax and wait.
This, too, shall pass.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
