Boy Do I Feel Dumb

I was taking the Vicodin I was prescribed at the hospital Thursday but it was making me vomit. Not fun. I called my doctor's office Thursday afternoon and told them and they said they would phone something else in. Hubby picked it up for me and I started taking it.

If anything I've been in worse pain than before. Hard to imagine because this is the worst pain I've ever had. Ever.

A little while ago I was practically screaming out in pain and very definitely not being able to sleep. Hubby woke up and we discussed me going back to the hospital, something I'm still resisting. As a last ditch attempt to ride this out at home, I asked hubby to call the Walgreen's pharmacy we use to see if I could add Tylenol to help cut the pain.

He found out the new prescription I'd gotten was not for pain at all. It was to help with the nausea the Vicodin was causing. So, yeah. I've been dealing with this pain without any pain medication. I've taken one now and am waiting for it to kick in so I can finally get some restful sleep.

Boy, do I feel dumb.
