I wanted to take a few minutes and deliver a general update on my personal wellbeing. There’s two things that are going on and I’m seeing my doctor in the morning for both.
First and foremost, I’m meeting with my doctor to discuss withdrawaling from Paxil and Wellbutrin. I want to do so in a slow deliberate manner in order to give my body time to adjust.
Secondly, I need her to look at my back. This is gross but I mentioned last week that the cyst on my back had burst, which is normal. I’ve never dealt with anything like that before so it had me pretty freaked out. Lizze has done an amazing job of helping me care for it. I can’t reach the middle of my back and I’ve been completely reliant on her.
The cyst itself is healed but a secondary infection has developed right below it and it’s been unbelievably painful. I have no idea what caused it but Lizze has been helping with that as well and it’s been really gross. If I hadn’t already made this clear, I’d be lost without her. ☺
We cleaned it out really well last night and the pain is beginning to go away. I’m pretty sure it’s on the mend but I want my doctor to check it out and make sure I don’t need to go on any antibiotics. I have a feeling I need a round of antibiotics for this but it is doing better.
For the last couple of weeks, I’ve had a hard time sleeping, sitting, lying down and pretty much doing anything that caused stress to the area of my back impacted. It’s dab smack in the center of my back, right on my spine. It’s pretty hard to avoid making contact.
Anyway, even if I was already going to discuss my depression, I’d be going to get this checked out. The cyst itself is going away and looks infinitely better than it did before. I just need to get rid of this secondary infection, so I can get back to working out, sitting and sleeping.
