I am a druggie!
Slow down, you move too fast
You gotta make the morning last
Just kickin' down the cobblestones
Got no deeds to do No promises to keep
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morningtime drop all its petals on me...Life, I love you,All is groovy (Feelin’ groovy –S & G)
It’s Sunday and the effects of steroid withdrawal are way worse than I had expected. Last night was plagued with bad dreams; I’m really tired and losing appetite. Lethargy is an understatement and all my muscles ache, like I’ve run a marathon. This small article on the net suggests there may also be a component of psychological dependence to the withdrawal. Odd, but it’s funny to think of my self as a druggie, fighting to rid my self of a drug that helped me get better. Too much of a good thing…….
Tripti is currently making an elaborate Anatomy quiz for her medical students. She’s pushing PowerPoint to its limits to make an impressive quiz! Hope they enjoy it. That’s the thing in CMC, and many other places too I’m sure. So much investment into the students – it’s how the student responds that makes the exercise worth it!
Will make a short walk today, and hopefully make it to Chapel for the evening service. Just hope this lethargy settles, I have a patient for anal physiology testing to do tomorrow in hospital and Anne needs to have Koby checked for routine follow up. It just won’t do if I’m not up to the trip!
Its great to know what ever the challenge or problem - a druggie or whatever - God's there to sort it out! Just need to keep my speedlimits within his regulation books!
