Dizzy and not feeling well

I got dizzy the night of the DLI, called the station 94 at Mayo, they asked all the pertinent questions, then recommended going to the ER, which we didn’t.  Didn’t want to be accused of not drinking enough when I had and then being hooked up to more liquid.  Well, the same thing is happening tonight, getting dizzy when I have drank plenty of fluids.  Might be my blood pressure med working too good.  But it is definitely not quantity of liquids consumed.  Strange feeling getting dizzy when you are kicked back in bed.


I wrote a strongly worded email to Big Daddy’s BBQ complaining about the lack of baby back ribs and the pooooooooor service.  I don’t know why I expected a response, but I did/do.  There was no excuse for how bad things went and missing food.  I expect an I am sorry message from someone there.  I know I said I will never go back there in the email, but one upset customer can spread a lot of bad reputation and they ticked off my whole family.  The simple sorry would make things all good with me.


I slept till noon today, but I slept for crap last night.  And no, I haven’t napped today.  I got to get to a chiropractor and get my back cracked and in line like it’s supposed to be.  I have to sleep on my sides cuz of sleep apnea, and it really hurts my back to lay on my side.  Not good.  So Monday, I will call Jodie and see if she can get me in.  Jodie is the chiropractor who is about 2 blocks away from our house.  She is really nice and does a good job, I have used her once before when my back was bad and walked out a new man.


Jennifer from Mayo faxed the orders for the Cortisol check on Thursday to Dr. Wehbe’s office.  Cool deal.  After a Wednesday at Mayo, I have to be awake at 8 to go get this stupid blood test.  I think its totally unnecessary as I did not have an adrenalin problem when I went on the hydrocortisone, why would I have one when I came off?  I may be sleeping more than usual but when I am awake I am full of energy.  Bah, what do I care, it’s just another blood test.


I want to spend Thanksgiving with my family, but Teresa won’t be able to get time off.  And I won’t be in the shape to drive or even fly.  That also means I am going to miss Thanksgivingfest again too.  Boo to missing both.  I hate what my life has become again.


Funny, the difference between CBCs from MOHA (Dr. Wehbe’s office) and Mayo.  MOHA includes WBC White Blood Cells as their own category, easy to read.  Mayo breaks the White Blood Cells up into all the little types that they are, virtually impossible to read if you aren’t medically trained to read them.  I’ll let MOHA take my blood every week and not worry about trying to decipher Mayo’s gobbely gook.


Well, dinner is almost done.  Teresa’s sweet and sour chicken.  My personal favorite dish that she makes.  So, I am gonna cut this blog entry a little short.
