First of all, I start by saying that as a general rule, I am not a drinker. On the one or two times a year, maybe, that I do drink, one drink and I'm feeling fine and there's typically not a 2nd drink.
My brother is a bouncer for a local bar. One of the perks is being able to get a nice discount on liquor. Him and sis have been making me a variety of different drinks that have become some of their faves. Today my brother filled my water bottle for me while I was dressing for a day out in St. Augustine. Before leaving, I took all of my pain meds. I drove the entire trip down and my arms have been paying for it ever since. I grabbed my water bottle from my brother and headed out.
That was NOT water in the bottle! ROTFL! about 1/3 of the way through my drink, coupled with the Percocet...lets just say that mama had a very enjoyable day! My son was cracking up at my mellowness...again, I was enjoying the lack of pain. I'm sure it was a sight!
The Prozac seems to be a positive thing. I do have more energy and while I did nap today, I haven't felt the need for a nap the previous two days. For months all I have wanted to do was nap. That is a huge improvement!
Thanks for all of the input. I had to get away from home. I couldn't ever put it that way to my husband, because his feelings would get hurt and all that jazz. But, it is the truth: I needed to just get away from home for a few days. NOW I am in a mind set where when I return, I can function as the wife and mother that I need to function as.
