Grandmama told me I should study chemistry and medical things.
The reason? I’m finding chemistry has a lot to do with medications and allergens.
I replied, “I don’t like chemistry,” or something along those lines.
I was given Clindamycin 150mg to help prevent getting an infection after my wisdom teeth removal. The pharmacist told Grandmama it didn’t contain nuts, lactose, milk, eggs or yeast. The chemical name is Methyl 7-chloro-6,7,8-trideoxy-6-(1-methyl-trans-4-propyl-L-2-pyrrolidinecarboxamido)-1-thio-L-threo-α-D-galacto-octopyranoside monohydrochloride, and lactose is an inactive ingredient. Inactive or not, when allergies and intolerances come into play, everything in the ingredients matters. I haven’t taken any since 1am, but I took one for yesterday’s [and today's] dose and from Thursday evening to Monday after midnight, I was taking two every twelve hours. To spare you the details, I get all the symptoms of a lactose intolerance.
I’m clumsy on a regular basis, but yesterday it was taken to a new extreme. I’m still half here and half gone, so if this post doesn’t make sense, then it’s definitely clumsy itself.
I was given the yucky-tasting Halcion to ‘relax and attempt sleep’. I think it’s annoying that they told me to do such, as I honestly don’t understand how one can “try” — and I’m almost certain she was referring to me relaxing moving-wise, which wasn’t something I could control considering they were tics without some kind of muscle relaxer. I don’t remember falling asleep, or receiving the IV sedation, or being moved to the other room, or asking, “Who are we visiting?” and Grandmama replying, “We’re home.” I also don’t remember changing my shirt, or laying down, but I remember that I had a bit of my smoothie.
I’m getting my wisdom teeth removed tomorrow, the bone fragment from my previous tooth extraction removed, and a cap over a broken tooth damaged by an impacted wisdom tooth.
I decided I’m wearing pajamas to the dentist tomorrow so I can be comfortable. I should actually be fully asleep this time. Because of my allergies, it wasn’t easy to find antibiotics or pain medications they could prescribe me. …why will they prescribe hydrocodone1 but not 800mg ibuprofen? Instead I get to ‘double up’ on the over-the-counter dosage. Just as long as I can’t feel anything…
I’m not looking forward to it.
Today, I had glucose testing. Not eating made me irritable, and I also got sick after the three blood draws, starting with the second one.
I really like handmade things. I also adore giveaways with handmade items.
The only allergy-free way I can enjoy Sunbutter is by eating it alone. I can also make plain granola bars, or something else, with Sunbutter, but I can’t eat a Sunbutter & jelly sandwich because I’m allergic to bread. And jelly/jam with preservatives.
I don’t really get along with feminists. The main reason is because I believe in human rights, not rights for certain groups of people, and this usually starts an argument (or twenty) about how I should care about [blah blah blah]…
I really miss S.
I suck at replying to snail mail. I still have two different people’s letters on my desk to reply to — two are from Christine.
