Journal: Zero to miserable in less than 10 doses
I canned my second try with Cymbalta after about a week. Maybe I'd forgotten why I quit the first time around, but I think my second try was worse than the first. After a couple days, I was either getting up to pee or to put a dry pad on the bed three times a night. By last Wednesday, I was feeling sleep-deprived and achey, which was a bad thing because we were hosting a small crowd for Thanksgiving.
After a draining day of housecleaning, Thanksgiving dinner (and a generous dousing of white wine) left me feeling completely deflated, several helpings of turkey notwithstanding. On Friday, I stayed home and did nothing. Nothing at all. That morning, I quit taking Cymbalta. Again.
I've been sleeping better and better since then. I'm also trying to get back into swimming a couple of times a week. I'll be seeing the nurse practitioner at the pain clinic in a week or two, and I'm hoping she'll have a new angle for me.
