Sick again and another ER visit.


Every time I eat I get sick from both ends. Trying to eat the least upsetting food for my stomach. I was dehydrated and had to go to ER. They couldn’t tell if it was from the new meds (started right after) or a bug. Either way it has been over a week now and I still am sick after eating.

Mentally I am sick as well. Between the two I am in bed all the time and sleeping.  I sleep at least 16 hours every day. Went to psyche nurse today and she is adding an older anti-depressant to my cocktail. Though I have to wait since what she ordered doesn’t come in that size and they have to order it anyhow.

I am so sick and tired of this. I am suffering physically and mentally and still having trouble with my cognizance. Typing is a real trial and can’t spell anymore.

Please excuse my ins and outs. I will be here when I can tolerate it.

Rough time between Bipolar and Fibromyalgia and Diabetes


I am having reactions to diabetes meds and last one landed me in the hospital ER for dehydration, low magnesium and diarrhea and vomiting. Having a rough time lately.

All I do is sleep now that I stopped the antidepressant Paxil. It wouldn’t let me sleep.

Sugars are high again. Back to my old medicine and trying to clean this weekly injection out of my system. It sent me to the ER. I had 2 bottles of liquid and a bottle of magnesium.

Almost threw up in the ER 3 times. Holding it down was unpleasant, but throwing up is even nastier.

Fasting level was a little high due to last night’s party for my grandson.


It was 160 this morning. Kept it fairly low carb today. Omelette with ham, bacon and sausage in it. Dinner was a huge salad of lettuce and then tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and a large scoop of tuna. All water to drink, no soda. Did have some diet soda last night so none today.

Psych nurse is raising my anti-psychotic. Not sleeping and not really tired. Kind of on the manic side of life due to the anti-depressant being higher dosage.
