I had put the lack of attention to this blog down to a number of things.
End of term.
You know the kind of thing.
And then I was thinking about how I've been feeling. Miserable. Sick. Headaches like you wouldn't believe, where I can't move my head or even look at anything. I've put on almost a stone, because I'm always hungry, but eating rubbish. I did some digging.
Last time I went to the doc, about 4 weeks ago, give or take, I went to get my usual prescription of Marvelon, as my birth control of choice. The computer said to give me Gedarel instead. It's cheaper. So I obligingly got it, and took it, and all was well, but these are listed side effects from it. I phoned the nurse today to say "look, these are the things that are happening, what's going on?" and I was given a prescription for Marvelon quicker than I could blink!
We'll see what happens, and I'm starting the Marvelon tomorrow, but after 5 days off of it, I have to say, it's good to feel almost like my own self again!
You and I, we have a lot to catch up on!
