#myfavoritemeds // Lately I’ve been seeing a wave of mental health posts on social media. Why? I’d like to think it’s because 1) Everyone has mental health to some degree & 2) it’s important & needs to be accepted. Today was the first day in a while that I had an ‘off’ day from the time I woke up. It’s hard to put into words for those who don’t understand what depression feels like & even if you do, it’s still hard because we all experience it differently. Right after I turned 21 in 2012 I found myself in a dark place where I didn’t feel like myself. Skipping all the details, I started taking Celexa & by the end of 2 weeks the feeling I had ‘lifted’ & I felt like myself again. For the last 6 years since then I’ve taken medication, & with ups & downs, I can say that I feel like myself most days. But then there are the days that I don’t. The days that I cry for no reason, am irritable towards those I care about most & feel disconnected. Sad but worse. This is mental health. It’s acceptance, taking the good with the bad & living life in spite of difficult circumstances. I am fortunate that I knew to get help & have had support all along, but I know there are so many others struggling with & without the same resources.
I am NOT a happy camper. 😡
I have been waiting 1 HOUR so far for my sleep medication prescription that her incompetent staff can't be bothered to fill. CVS has faxed them 3 times, which is the maximum times they try. I've sent 3 emails, and left 2 voicemails. Nothing. I ran out of medication Tuesday, so had none for last night. Predictably, I didn't sleep. This infuriates me! They can't even do the basics. Last time I came, they gave me the wrong prescription! Since it was a controlled substance, I had to come back in person and waited 45 minutes to get the correct one. I've had a financial institution contact them for my Medical Records. Their first contact was November 1st, and they continually assured him they were nearly complete. Until he called last week and was told the person handling the file went on maternity leave, and he'd have to start over. The *only* reason I stay is that some of my prescriptions are only handled by a few physicians, so it will be very difficult changing doctors. But I have to at this point. When you can't even get a prescription refill unless you go sit in the doctor's office, it's time to throw her under the bus after 25 years. #pissed#meds#medication#HorribleService#incompetence#CantSleep

I can't believe there are people that can't grasp the fact that not everyone is using fake pretenses about their illness. It's strange that people see me struggle and then turn around and tell people I'm milking it. You can't exactly fake #seizures, or intentionally impede blood flow, oh and those 20 #medication bottle in my purse... Skittles, come on.
Meet Bob, he's a lesion I've had since I was 12. Bob says fuck off.
Is taking medication making your pain worse?
In relation to my blog yesterday about anti-inflammatories, and my previous thoughts on the overuse of NSAIDS, few people realise how devastating long-term use of medication can be.
Pain medication (mainly anti-inflammatories) are used to treat the beginnings of pain with injury – to literally stop inflammation. However, as we know, there isn’t a magic pill to take away pain, and therefore meds are only scratching the surface of your suffering. The pain might subside but the issue is still there (treating the symptom and not the cause).
Researchers at the University of New England and the Center for Molecular Medicine at the Maine Medical Center Research Institute, published a report in the journal Arthritis and rheumatology that proved that NSAID’s had a negative impact on patient’s pain. Doctors suggested that the “reason a joint replacement is recommended and performed, is because NSAIDs do not work and, in fact, cause the pain that leads to joint replacement recommendations. And as far back as 1995, in a classic study from the University of North Carolina, School of Medicine, Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, Sports Medicine section found how detrimental NSAIDs use was in healing soft tissue.”
In conclusion – NSAID’s help take away the pain but have no place in healing injuries. Therefore, you might feel great but you’d be doing the affected area more damage.
Something about yesterday’s powerful portal 12/12 is allowing us to be inspired, creative, and enthusiastic about what is possible. There is support for movement around projects, ideas, intentions and bringing clarity around issues. Good time for making major life decisions, even if they don’t manifest for a while. You have the tools, you’re just distracted.
PSA: TMM // 💊 It’s a love/hate relationship- can’t live with it, can’t live without it. I’ve struggled with taking my medication since first being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. The reality for me is that it doesn’t get easier, but I have accepted that I can’t function without them. Grateful to have found the perfect cocktail of anti-psychotics and mood stabilizers to help get me through this thing we call life #myfavoritemeds

Nitroglycerin is a nitrate that acts as a potent vasodilator. Nitroglycerin is most commonly used in the treatment pathway for patients presenting with unstable angina (UA), non-ST-segment-elevated myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), and ST-elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI). These conditions are collectively referred to as acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Nitroglycerin is also used off-label for treating acute pulmonary edema, often secondary to congestive heart failure. For all intended purposes, this discussion will focus primarily on the use of IV nitroglycerin (not sublingual nitroglycerin).
Nitroglycerin works by increasing coronary blood flow through dilation of coronary arteries, and by improving collateral flow to ischemic regions of the myocardium. It decreases left-ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP) and left-ventricular end-diastolic volume (preload). Reduces myocardial O2 consumption. Produces vasodilation (venous greater than arterial).
Nitroglycerin IV is a very effective and rapid vasodilator that can be titrated to achieve varying, and often predictable decreases in both cardiac preload and afterload. Reduction of both preload (low doses) and afterload (high doses) in patients with acutely decompensated heart failure (ADHF) directly correlates to an increase in cardiac index and a subsequent decrease in pulmonary artery wedge pressure (PAWP) and pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR). However, the effect of nitroglycerin is largely dependent on titration and avoiding the development of tolerance and hypotension. Furthermore, nitroglycerin reduces myocardial ischemia by means of its nitric oxide-mediating vasodilatory action on large coronary vessels. This effect is essential for both improving coronary artery perfusion and reducing cardiac oxygen demands in patients presenting with ACS.
The use of nitroglycerin is contraindicated in patients presenting with RV infarction and in patients who have used a phosphodiesterase inhibitor for erectile dysfunction within 24 hours.
