Good morning, everyone — happy Saturday! Hopefully everyone’s weekend got off to a good start; here in muggy DC, I’m chillin’ with my numero-uno homie, Aleve, and some green tea.
As it turns out, my blissfully pain-free state on Wednesday morning was largely due to the narcotics they’d given me in post-op recovery. Blergh. That’s the bad news — the good news, though, is that now things are largely under control with NSAIDs, which is a huuuuuuuuge upgrade. Give me Aleve over Percocet any day, y’all. Narcotics, while effective, are SO not my friends. As I’ve learned recently, they give me weird, unwieldy side effects like hyperactivity, wanting to clean ALL THE THINGS, nightmares, and nausea. It’s no bueno! As it turns out, I’m an OTC and/or herbal remedy kind of gal.
Anyways, I’ve got more rest and recovery on tap for the weekend. I’m reading Dr. Lissa Rankin’s mind-bogglingly awesome book, Mind Over Medicine, and I’ve been devouring it like it’s a tray of really good GF brownies. I fully intend to park my tuchus on the sofa and read the crap out of it later today. I also want to see This is The End with Brandon, since we both laughed hysterically when watching the trailers — and laughter, really, is the best medicine.
With that, I hope everyone has a fabulous Saturday!
