Feeling better

I' m doing better I turned down the thermostat got a personal fan.  I had seen my pain doctor on the day I asked for suggestions.  He was actually a little concerned that I was overdosed and that was what some of the symptoms were from.  He gave me some non-sedating sleeping pills- ones that work with my bodies melatonin.  The suggestions given from my last post however got me to thinking about doctors I've seen in the past who thought out of the box.  The last time Atlanta had heat indexes like we do now; one of my doctors sent me to stay with my brother in Buffalo NY.  He called me every day to check on me because I had been spending so much time in the ER and he figured sending me up to NY where it was cooler and had less pollution would be helpful at least he was hoping so.  When I got back he told me that the real reason he sent me up there was that he felt like he was watching me die and he couldn't handle it.  He felt like he had to think out of the box in order to save my life and was certainly glad that it worked. Now that I remembered how badly I reacted to the heat before I did my best to stay inside and keep myself cool.  I babied myself with what I ate, kept it light; and used the sleeping pills and changed around the pain killers like the pain doctor suggested and am feeling better.  Not great but better.  I now have hope that progress will be made and little by little things will  get better

Glad to hear that things are improving! A personal fan is a great idea in the heat. Spritzing your face with water and then cooling it with the fan works well too.
