So I'm dwindling down on my medication as per the doctor's instructions. So instead of taking 3 predizones a day, I'm down to taking 2 for another two days, and then one for three days. I still have to take my anti-viral every 8 hours.
My issue is the pain medication I'm on. It's generic for Vicodin, which I wasn't expecting to be given. I can take it every 4-6 hours as needed, but I've only been taking it around every 8-10 hours instead to be on the safe side.
While on this pain med I am a total scatter brain. I was talking to a friend on Facebook, told her I would be back in just a few minutes, and instead was gone for an hour while I got distracted by painting (Something I hadn't even intended on doing until tomorrow). I left to say hello to my mom, but instead managed to paint for an hour.
I can't even concentrate. This post right here, has taken me a full half an hour to type out because I keep getting distracted.
Oh, and on top of the concentration issues, I also feel absolutely drained. I have no energy or concentration and I'm just taking a pain pill basically.
