The other bad side effects I've been experiencing are headaches, trouble sleeping and night sweats. I had a really bad headache last night that turned into a migraine and caused me to be late to work. I would have loved to call in sick but I had way to much that needed to be done. Luckily my darling doctor husband loaded me up with drugs and I was able to drag myself to work.
Tomorrow is the couples shower for my friend J that is pregnant with twins. I visited with J on Monday and when I mentioned that one of the kitties nibbled off the corner of her gift she said are you really coming to the shower because I would totally understand if you couldn't handle it. I told her I was planning to come and she burst into tears and told me that it meant so much to her because she knew how hard this would be. I'm so glad that she understands and it makes me really want to do this for her. Maybe the acupuncturist can work a little magic on me to keep my emotions under control. At least my hubby will be there with me (and my friend Sarah).
The 1/2 marathon is less than one month away. (The one I'm walking). Sarah & I had a practice walk on Saturday and we did quite well. We walked 11 1/2 miles in 3 hours. It was fun but I got a huge blister on my heel. Unbelievable. I ran a marathon and didn't get a blister like the one I just got. It seems to be much better and I put some different insoles in my shoes so hopefully I will have better luck this week. I walked 5 miles last night and my feet felt fine.
Thanks to all those who have served or are currently serving our country in the armed forces. I have 2 nephews that are in the Army and I'm so very proud of them.
