Thanks for all of the well wishes and offers of dinners and help - I love you guys! One of the things that is very hard for me is asking for and accepting help - even if I need it. I'm just so used to being self-reliant that it's really frustrating to admit that I can't do something. It's all the little things that I can't do that are driving me mad - emptying the trash, making the bed, opening cans and bottles, taking stuff out of the oven (microwave too), changing the pool filter, clipping the dogs' toenails, putting my hair in a pony tail...silly stuff that I always have taken for granted. I can't drive on the meds and I can't see straight off the meds - took the bus to a work lunch yesterday - I had forgotten why I don't take the bus! Weird people and it takes forever to get anywhere - but the curry was excellent at the Tiny Thai (as always of course) and it got me out of the house - which was good.

Went to the fair to work today - didn't take meds so I could drive was ok until about 12 hours after the last dose and then I was one hurtin' cowgirl!! I'm back on track now though.
