This brings me to the real reason of this blog post MEDICATION.
Yep I need my medication to try and enjoy and if not enjoy, to endure my day to day life. I take antidepressants to keep me from sinking into depression and they are the two most important tablets I take each day. Depression is a bitch! it will rob you of the joy of life and leave you under that black cloud unable to understand why you feel so sh*te. Depression is like a fog that never clears and everything looks murky and distant. But I found that owning up to the fact you are feeling dismal or even suicidal and seeking help is like a weight has been lifted and then a sliver of sunshine entered my gray world and eventually my days went from mono tone to full on colour. Don't get me wrong I still get bad days but they are the exception not the norm. Other tablets I take are painkillers, and one bad side effect to any pain relief is it can cause tummy problems. Constipation or diarrhea are two extremes and all manner of aspects in between. I recently changed pain relief and the first thing it did was yes stop the pain but it upset my tummy. Now as I mentioned I can barely walk and have a wheelchair and a trough floor lift, the lift was a result of falling whilst trying to get on the stairlift.
Speed is of the essence when you get the desire that you really need the toilet and I just aint speedy anymore, so after five days of trying the new tablets I had to admit defeat and go back to my old painkillers. So the moral of this story is this, if for any reason you change or start new tablets BEWARE you could end up with unintended consequences, if you become constipated take some form of laxative and if it is the opposite stay close to the loo.
