You can get through this. I watched my Dad come back from a very serious illness this past summer. It was scary to see what the drugs did to him and it took a lot of courage and work on his part but you can do this too. Your husband needs you. You have always been there for everyone and now it's your turn to be taken care of. Take one day at a time, each day will be better than the next. The medications you were on will take a while to get out of your system.

In the meantime I'm sending healing thoughts.

Nana, Nancy said it just right. It will take time and determination to get through these next weeks, but you ARE a strong and determined woman, and you can do this.

You know, when I came on and saw your posting this morning?

I felt useful.

I feel the same way about the Board that you do, Nana.

I'm glad you posted.

Holding you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hang in there Pat. You are on a lot of medicine different medicine. Hopefully it will clear your system. Try to make sure you aren't alone and don't drive.

Nana...You were put on a lot of medications that can effect you in weird ways. The cortisone could cause you to feel like you were manicky. The cymbalta while they say it will help with pain and depression can be hard in the beginning. Amitriptoline will make you feel sedated. The xanax and haldol they gave you certainly dont help. You will feel a bit out of your body.

Hang in there. Things will get better. If you continue to feel badly please tell someone to call your doctor. Side effects shouldnt last for long.

Janet is right cortisone can make you manic. I'm sure the other medications are making everthing a bit weird, too.

Hang in there. We're all here for you. It's time for you to get some TLC. Be good to yourself, and spoil yourself.

You are in my prayers. Sending warm ((((((hugs))))))
