From the Desk Of...

Tax season is over. What a rush. I totally lose/ignore the other part of my life but it is a true adrenaline rush. And when it's all over... it's sad. Almost depressing. Coming down off a rush always is. Good news, I took Thursday the 16th off. All accountants do. Then I only worked Friday morning and headed out. So I've had a few days off and came to work ready to really get this office back under control. Might as well start off blogging right?

Update on the tumor. I met with a neurologist a couple weeks ago who also suggested the medicinal route. He was pretty eccentric and I have to say had a huge bulging forehead. I couldn't stop staring at it! I kept thinking no wonder he is a brain surgeon he has a HUGE brain crammed into that head. So I started taking Bromocriptine (bro-mo-krip-teen). Check it out:



I know, right? Did they dust all the cobwebs off before they gave it to me? Did they retreive it out of the dungeon? Sheesh. It worked great. Stopped all my unusual symptoms and gave me peace of mind. Then it gave me a peice of it's mind and I was living in Puke City. Sick everynight 1 hour and 45 minutes after I took the pills. But I figured it was a small price to pay to get rid of my tumor. When I finished those I started taking Cabergoline. (cab-ur-go-lean). I'm not as sold on this. Some symptoms are coming back and I only take it twice a week. Which is how it is prescribed but I feel like it's not as strong or something. It's gotta be in my head. (Literally... hahaha)


All in all I'm doing great. Kicking @$$ and taking names. Next week I get bloodwork to test the productivity of my meds. To see if my prolactin level is down. I love having something to look forward to.

I really hope there's a third kind of medicine that will take away the symptoms without making you nauseated. Is that so much to ask? :) And thanks for my birthday lunch. Soooo yummy. I felt bad that I couldn't eat much at my birthday dinner. :) Missed you at church yesterday. Sadie hash been barfing now for... 36 hours. Big, big fun. I'm taking the day off from work.

Patty, I sure hope that the meds are working. You are an awesome young lady and very upbeat. I admire your attitude. I'm glad you are back to blogging. We have missed you. Enjoy the beautiful weather and get out of the office a few days now that tax season is over.

I hope the meds are working!! I would probably feel the same way about the medicine. Taking it every night would make me feel more relaxed! Glad tax season is over! Hope you can get everything back in order:)
