Medical Update.

1. Cutting down on the Lexapro (escitalopram). Saw my shrink today and mentioned anorgasmia. Not such a problem when you're single, more of a drag when you're not.

(Actually, it's still a nuisance when you're single, but spending an hour working on it, alone, is more of a problem when you want to spend that time with someone else, working on it together).

2. Down to 8mgs prednisolone this week but alas, stomach is playing up again. I initially thought it was a bug or dodgy food, but irregardless, I now appear to be flaring a bit. Salofalk will be employed first, then pred goes up if things don't improve.

3. In recent times I've noticed that I'm more embarrassed talking to health care providers about the ins and outs of bowel health than the ins and outs of sexual health. Funny that.

4. Reckon I'll need the next lot of antibiotics for bacterial sinus infection within the week. Oi vey.

5. Am about to do some more streamlining and thinking about food, go me. It's odd to be told, by a couple of different carers, that if nothing else I eat healthy. Of course, they don't see how much goes into the worm farm. OTOH, I assume it's because that while I might not eat all the fruit and veg that I buy, it's not like I'm purchasing soft drink, chips or confectionary. Presumably some of their other clients do. Most of my shortcuts are the healthier of the convenience options. However, I know I can improve it with a bit more forward planning and no loss to comfort.

Yup. Lexapro is notorious for squashing sexual enthusiasm.

Chips. They seem to be the only thing that settles the nausea I'm having on the newest ABX in my mix. Its really odd. Not heping the waistline much either. Oh well.

I"m giggling about you being more comfortable talking about sex than your bowel and its shenanigans. That is awesome.

You realise that this post isn't locked at all?

That's cool, because I haven't really talked about my bowel habits. ;)
