Unnecessary Discomfort

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,

So, so sorry! May you find relief soon.

Because I have Crohn's, my gut is really sensitive so I can really empathize with you.

I hope your intestines are happier soon and you have some relief from the cramping!!

So sorry, and so unnecessary. I can understand you. This is like a double patch.
