Hello and welcome back to my travels. The last 10 days, for lack of a better word, have been lousy. It started off at a meeting of our writers for the Eagles game. They were supposed to win, nobody told them. We were outside playing corn hole and tossing the pig skin around, listening to Merril Reese.
While we were chatting, I had to sit in a car to cool off and get my wits about me on a few occasions. I really wasn’t sure what was going on. I was still having dizzy spells until Tuesday. My wife took me to the ER with dizzy spells and chest pains that felt like squeezing on the left side.
I was in hospital a couple days so they could poke and prod me as much as possible. Turns out my heart is okay but the Effexor that I take to keep me out of the dark places causes chest pain. I looked it up, it was hard to find but it was there. I must have missed it. My Cardiologist told me to talk to whoever prescribed them to see if there was another drug to switch to.
As the week progressed I seemed to be losing my memory. People I see everyday. I couldn’t find their name in my brains files. I also seemed to be having a tough time finding my way around our little to rowhome for a while. This brought a wicked case of apathy followed by major depression. I am still trying to find out who invited the BIG D to the party but haven’t figured it out yet. Apathy has to be the worst symptom ever. I just don’t care about anything. I am actually trying to use this article to snap out of the funk. It ain’t working. My wife says I have been having more periods of absence, which seems right. Hopefully this ends soon as the depression is back along with different hallucinations which are bigger and more scary tham the others that I have had.
I will be back in a week to 10 days.
Have a great night.
Enjoy my story
