I worked on weekly house maintenance today, then got something from the pharmacy. Then I went over and watched lots of YouTube clips from 'Glee' with YKWIA (no, I've never actually seen the series, but we watched lots of their versions of songs today). I took A to the grocery and then I came home and worked on the CV and on my LinkedIn profile, and Googled myself to find what is out there on the internet, and I found an old CV that had been archived that had some additional info on it that I may or may not incorporate, as it is very old, like from the GeoCities days. I've been listening to the radio since I got home, and I'm listening to a CD now, so there's been a great deal of music today. I just changed my phone font (I loved the other, but it only had lower case, and that was a problem when blogging, etc.) and did some updating. Now I've taken my meds and I'm ready for bed. There's no game tomorrow, so I didn't do the notes tonight and I can go over there later tomorrow than normal.
Yesterday they did a series of x-rays on my neck and back, so I should know more about what's going on soon. The doctor and ARNP put me on prednisone and I'll continue with ibuprofen and tizanidine as needed, but thankfully, I am feeling better. I didn't actually take any pain reliever today until just now, and it was two ibuprofen, not the three I was taking during the day with Pepcid, or the Percocet at night. I like to take the minimum needed-- even when I broke my ankle, I moved to Tylenol after about two weeks. One, I don't want to take the chance on getting addicted to the opiates, and even NSAIDS aren't good for you long-term. They're bad on the kidneys, for one. Ibuprofen works better than Tylenol for me, usually. I only took Tylenol with the ankle because it didn't inhibit bone growth like other pain relievers. Aleve does absolutely nothing for me.
Okay, I should put the phone down and sleep. My hands are hurting. Good night.
