Does your Chronic Pain Interfere With Your Social Life?
Current mood: lonely
Category: Blogging

My doctor recently increased my medications this past Saturday and
Last night I was up all night, My medications are:
Multivitamin Cap, Calcium Carb 1.5 mg 2 times a day, Alendronate 70mg
once a week, Gabapentin 300 mg 2 in the morning and 3 at nite,
Venlafaxine HCL 150 mg 1 a day, Cyclobenzaprine HCL 10 mg 1/2 tablet
as needed, Divalproex 500 mg 1 at night, Trazodone HCL 50 mg as needed
for sleep, Omeprazole 20 mg 2 a day for stomach acid, Methadone 45mg a
day 3 times a day for pain, Percocet 5mg 325 mg aceacillion 2 every 4
hrs for pain as needed. The Methadone was just changed due to
increased pain and the current levels were not working.

This is the complete list of my medications and I have been crying a
lot very emotional I don't know why I have a roommate she is dating
and has been gone more than usual but I don't think that was It I was
online talking on chat and I just started crying it was a good thing
that I had my speakers on some nice lady there who remembered me told
me it would be OK, But No matter what I plan or do I cant seem to get
around these medical issues and I am very depressed over the no
progress on my social life at all, I am tired of staying at home alone
with no Girlfriend and being depressed So I did my home work and I
looked up all the things that I could do and even had a diner party to
go to on Friday it was a meditation class and then after a diner party
Well my Primary care doctor called and told me to increase my
medications and also to go back on the Cyclobenzaprine HCL 10 mg 1/2
tablet 3 X a day, After I made the changes in my med box He also told
me no driving for 2 weeks until my body gets used to the dosage
increase I thought that he was kidding until yesterday when I slept
all day I could keep my eyes open So I have some phone calls to make
this morning and after that i will try to take a short nap this after
noon. That's its for now I almost called the crisis center because I
had a panic attack I didn't know what to do about all of this not
drinking thing I dont know when or if My roommate is going to a AA
recovery meeting she works 3pm to 11pm Wednesday Thur Friday and then
10:30- 6:00 Saturday and Sunday and that dont leave a lot of time for
meetings she is Off Monday and Tuesday that is why she is over at her
boyfriends He is having a tooth pulled so she is going with him today,
and then I don't know when she will be back maybe Monday today or
Tuesday I don't know I would care except she still owes me for Feb
Rent and she is going to buy 50.00 worth of Groceries there is nothing
here almost to eat. So I have to have my Case Manager go through my
meds to check if I did the increase correctly? And I didn't get to meet
with her last week just a phone conversation so if she could come
over then I could get a few things at the grocery store to hold me over.  I don't really feel like getting out today at all because i know I will spend it all at the grocery store I am waiting for my roommate to go to the store when she gets home she knows I cant drive to any meetings and to the store, I just got up and Im dizzy and my balance is way off I think I need to sleep but if my case manager comes over I will go to the store and get something I would rather go to the salvation army food canteen there they give you enough for 2 people there and they give you bread and pastries good stuff there are other places I'm sure but they have a  card on me there I just have to call and see when they are open today. Tomorrow is VA Group I will needaride their and a ride home if I am not supposed to drive. I'm locked down this morning., So if any of you reading this are near Gainesville, Fl let me know and I will get in touch with you I am come here a lot due to my Brain Injury  I get a lot of time logged on here at the computer So even if your not from here PM mem and we can talk ladies only sorry guys I only date women and I don't PM with  men.Now that my roommate Melissa moved out I dont have anyone to help me I need a nice female roomate to haelp me and whi wants to be a friend  to.
