Metformin Day 13 May 1, 2008

Happy Month of May everyone. The sun is out, the birds are chirping, the skies are blue.... but I can't seem to get off the couch. I started the 1500 mgs two days ago, and even blogging has seemed like a huge task. I have been so TIRED! I know it takes a few days to get used to each dose and that I'll probably bounce back, but I am just exhausted. The act of thinking, by itself, is hard for me lately. I guess I am just "spacey".. reminds me of my nickname as a kid: "Spacey Stacey" but it fits. I have been in mid conversations and forgotten what we are talking about. I've yelled at the dog and called my daughter's name instead of the dog's name. I've gone in the kitchen and just stood there trying to remember why I walked in, and worst of all, I have just stopped and stared off in the distance while my husband has been talking to me. He says I'm freaking him out, which I can understand. I told him that this should pass but I am so scared that it won't. I am taking 500 mgs in the am and 1000 mgs in the late evening and I have to figure something out. I feel like it is all too close together, like maybe I should take the 500 mgs later in the day since I only get a few hours of sleep at night. I'm just not motivated to do anything right now except lay on the couch and watch episodes of Big Brother on YouTube.

I have decided that I won't be driving until this brain fog dissipates. Italy is not the place to be driving if you're head isn't 100% focused. I'm really surprised I got this far in the blog, lol considering, but I haven't taken my pill yet this morning.

Let's hope this minor setback resolves itself or I may have to dye my hair bleach bottle blonde and get breast implants. I'll check in soon, if I can remember how to use the computer. :)

Have you asked the doctor if this is normal?? This worries me Stacey. I've been wondering where you were.
