Cardiologist Visit 06-10-10

I saw the cardiologist today. It was rather anticlimactic. I didn’t really hear anything I didn’t expect. I’ve got 3 choices for dealing with the PSVT: do nothing, continue with the meds, cardiac ablation. I can do nothing & just live with it. It’s not “life threatening” – I won’t die from the PSVT episodes, […]

My ER Visit Update

Since everyone is wanting an update on exactly what happened with me yesterday, I figure a blog post is in order. Many of you now know that I had to have JR take me to the ER yesterday. The whole thing actually started very early in the morning yesterday – around a quarter to 1. […]

April Fool's Day – And I'm Not Even Dressed Yet

Well, I’ve definitely had an interesting start to my April Fool’s Day. I woke up to the “reminder alarm” I have set on my iPod to start looking for Brianna’s bus – instead of my regular morning alarm – I had problems getting to sleep last night … I guess my body was making up […]

Adderall Day 1 End of Day

Well, it’s about a quarter til 10 at night and around 4:30 or 5:00 I started feeling tired and yawning a lot (I took my Adderall at about 9:30 – so about 7 hours). If I had taken it earlier in the day (around 6:30 when I normally get up), then taken my 2nd dose […]

Day 1 – 2 hours after – Adderall Update

Well, I took my first dose of Adderall this morning at around 9:30 (after I got back from picking it up at the pharmacy). It’s been about 2 hours and I am noticing I’m able to focus on what I’m doing more and not feeling that nagging feeling to “check on this” and “check on […]
