Just out of sorts
When mama wasn't up to par, she would say “I'm Out of sorts” or as I mentioned before another of her statements was “I feel so unnecessary!”
At the end of my session in the Emergency Room the Dr. asked if I wanted something for pain, for the first time I can recall I said YES! He prescribed about 3 days’ worth and I tried to stretch them out, that doesn’t work too well. I waited until the pain came back to take another pill. Yeah, I ain’t too smart, it takes more time for it to take effect. OUCH.
I used to could say I didn’t need medication. LOL But in my life starting about 35 yrs old there was a Vasectomy, Then my 70s, Cochlear implants, then 80’s skin cancer. I guess I should be glad that so far the only over nights in the hospital was as a visitor or caregiver.
I have always said you are your best doctor most of the time, so far I have been lucky (or fortunate) it has always worked. My feelings are your body will tell you when you are out of your paygrade and you need to talk to someone.
Once this pain med takes over I ‘think’ I am fine. But let it lapse a couple times and I know there must be more to this than I think. My next appointment with a Dr. I know is the 24th. When Sherry made the appointment she was told If I needed to see someone sooner to do a walk in. I just might have to do that.
Thanks for letting me dump here on the blog. My problem is I’m “Just out of sorts!” (whatever that means, it seems to fit my feelings. LOL)
