Eye Doctor Day

I'm off work today to go to the eye doctor again. This is the appointment they made for me last time after my emergency appointment to make sure I didn't have MS or something. I still don't know what IS wrong with my eye since I did see the pictures. I think today they are doing a regular eye exam (hopefully NOT dilating my eyes again) and then in a week or so I go back for a follow up where we talk about it (I think).

Last week I got a bladder infection. I went to the doctor and got a prescription (Bactrim) and after 3 days it was making my legs twitch. I had the same thing happen when I took some antibiotics a few years ago (Cipro). I called the office on Friday morning and told the nurse I was having a reaction to the meds and asked for a different prescription. She told me "that's not normally a side effect". I was like well it's listed on their page for side effects? Sheesh make me out like I'm a weirdo. So no one ever called me back Friday. Saturday I called during their clinic hours and left a message. Monday afternoon I get a call from the pharmacy that I have a prescription to pick up. Nice! So glad they spend the time to communicate with their patients.

So I've been taking this new antibiotic (Macrobid) for a couple days and I my legs are feeling tight and a bit twitchy again. WTF. I'm starting to wonder if I really do have something wrong with me and my body can't handle being on antibiotics now or something.  Hoping it stays to a minimum so I can at least finish off these meds and be done with them. Kind of freaking me out!


So since I am not going to work today I took Trevor to the bus and came back. When I went to drive back in there is a dead cat. It must have been dead under my car and I didn't notice when I backed out. Poor thing. I called the neighbor since he feeds all the stray cats around here and he said that she was old. I hope that is all it was. She looked really skinny.  He said the other neighbor had got her fixed about five years ago.  He said he'll take care of her (TG wasn't quite sure wtf to do with her). We live out in the country so yeah I can call animal control but seems silly for an old mostly feral cat.  The neighbor will bury her somewhere. TG for neighbors!


After my eye appointment today my mom and I are going to hang out and then later go to the movies to go see the new Book Club movie. Looks like it will be funny. Hopefully they didn't show all the funny parts in the previews!Pin It
