Happy Anniversary πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Well with things that have happened lately … some stuff which has made the light of day and other things which have not, we opted for a quiet 35th anniversary. We ate a late breakfast at Denny’s followed by watching the movie IT and then grocery shopping. Since we missed lunch, we opted for a very early dinner at Pappadeaux followed by Baskin and Robbins ice cream of course.

Now I’m paying the price. I haven’t recently blogged about my medical meat market woes but things have not gone away. In fact, they’re worse. On 8/20, I was prescribed an RX that I’m afraid to take until today. Now I’m throwing caution to the wind. Happy Anniversary πŸŽ‰

An unlikely source, our Pony Boy convinced me. He says “mom unless you have a gaping wound or something really bad doctors can’t diagnose you first try. Take the damn medicine and if it doesn’t work tell her and she’ll give you something else”.

Hmm πŸ€” and here I wanted a diagnosis first then a prescription (not a could be … sounds like). My response was “if I get kidney cancer, I’m blaming you”. That was on the insert as a side effect. No joking. Plus I’m prone to kidney cysts. Every CT or MRI I’ve had shows them. I’m told they’re nothing and shouldn’t hurt. But something hurts. Regardless I wouldn’t blame anyone least of all my boy.

Now you all know the origin of my moniker: J for Jill, Dub for last initial, and “Grin and Bear 🐻 It” for story of my life.

As always more to come.

  1. Interesting note – up here in good old Canada – when we pick up a prescription- it comes with a page or so of things to watch out for – or β€˜side effects’. Nothing too alarming.
    Years ago on a road trip (not my first) through your country I caught a nasty cold and a wretched cough. I’m not joking when I say that every damn thing I bought – be it a cough drop or cough syrup or whatever – came with such a long list of dire warnings I was too afraid to take it. Came back across the border two weeks later with near a suitcase full of cold meds that ended up in the trash. Your son is right – take the stuff! Don’t bother reading the paperwork unless you wake up one morning and realize you’re growing extra toes or something πŸ˜‚.

  2. Sounds like a fun day and outing, but not the aftereffects. Wishing you a happy Anniversary, though.
    Like you, I delay taking any new meds because the side effects sound worse than whatever it is you’re taking it for. I eventually give in and take the stuff, though. Best of luck with yours. πŸ™‚

  3. Hope you get a proper diagnosis and resolution soon. Happy Anniversary. (My mind read ET as the movie you saw and I said β€œhow sweet”! @@ Eye-roll!)

      1. I have a hard copy that is not bad to read. And I have it on my Kindle. Somehow it felt longer on my kindle. I started the Doctor Sleep book. Didn’t realize a movie was out.
