I think I am really on the mend! My fever broke last night. I woke in the middle of the night covered in sweat and my hair was dripping. If I hadn’t already been through that joy of menopause, I might have put it up to night sweats! So, I had to get up and change my nightshirt; small price to pay for knowing that soon the snare timpani drum will vacate my head!

Selene called to ask a question yesterday (Do I think 17 month old Lennon would like   – certainly, in a year or so.) and put Lennon on. He was so verbal! He just chatted along and said ‘Nana’ twice! Then he said ‘Bye’ and it was all over. Such a cutie!

I am waiting for my prescriptions to arrive. The doctor ordered the increased trazadone and more lorazapam for the anxiety. It has been about 10 days since my last Lexapro; but I am going to start taking them again. I have been having at least two to three anxiety attacks everyday. Scott told me I am waking him up with all my starts, shivers, and talking in my sleep. Guess I am not ready to stop medicating.

I was really hoping to get the pharmaceutical bill down. My scripts cost us $85 a month. Scott’s are $40. Then, there’s the Prilosec, antihistamines, Zantac, and vitamins which end up about $45. Altogether, about $170 per month or $2040 a year. Thank goodness for health insurance!

Today’s Goals:
  • Litter pans, yuck but has to be done. This includes mopping the floor under them with vinegar (mildly disinfecting and helps to kill the ammonia smell.
  • Kitchen, there’s always something to do.
  • Laundry, again, never-ending. How do two people produce so much laundry?
  • Bathrooms.

  1. Prescriptions and vitamins can be so expensive for sure. Like you I have insurance (and it covers 80%) but somehow it seems they always find a way to make it less. Even so I am glad for the coverage as otherwise the bill would be a lot more.
