Got very sick today again... I think i need to go to a doctor and find out if i have any food allergies because all the time i am getting awful abdominal pain and gas that takes hours to pass and is incredibly painful. i took a combo of xanax, vicodin and seroquel today... not all at once mind you, i took the xanax in the morning and the vicodin after i got sick.. i took my seroquel two hours late and now i have insomnia. i talked to my boss today and he wants me to come in on the 29th and have a discussion with him, he wants to make sure i'm healthy enough to work... he knows about the bp. i really hope he will let me work. i'm all over the place today. i don't know why i keep taking all these pills. i just wish i could be consistently happy without all of them. :(

Yes, definitely see your Dr. Sounds miserable!

I know what you mean about wanting to be OK without pills. I guess I had to try, realize what it takes and that I can't maintain it. I'm OK with taking Lamictal. Now I get that feeling after I see my pdoc.

I think it's like HBill says - gradually coming to acceptance with the disease.

Is working good for you? Does it help your mood? Do you need time off or a change of schedule. If he's concerned about your health, it might help to have some suggestions. Are you legally disabled and eligible for "reasonable accomodations"?

Or if your digestion problem is the issue, tell him you are having physical health problems NOT related to bp and you are seeing/ have and appointment to see a Dr. about it.

Good luck with your boss!
