So nice to meet you Lyn, but under such awful circumstances!
I feel your pain too. No one knows what to do for it really, if you can find someone who even knows what it is. I’ve read thru the site, it seems like everyone does something different.
I had an allergic reaction to elavil, had to go off. Though I do think its a good drug. Took it many years ago for chronic migraines and it changed my life. They were hormonal so eventually menopause and a hysterectomy ended them. But bodies do change.
And like Eve, I hate gabapentin, though it did help the fire, I’m going to stop, not sleeping and very sad/weepy and confused. Was hoping it would pass but I know it won’t. It destroyed my ability to think when I took it many years ago for my back.
About Florida, my reservation was for
January 7, but due to airline chaos, the pandemic, which is worse here in NJ than Florida now, and my feet, I’ve postponed until February 8th.
I went thru a year when the nursing home was entirely shut down to visitors, I saw her this past March and the rules are the same now. You have to be tested, they do it there in reception, and then take your temperature before entering. And of course masks are mandatory. I know Florida is ridiculously lax in prevention, thank that ignorant governor!
Saw dermatologist yesterday because of a sore on my toe. She said it’s not a chilblain, but an infection and gave me a topical antibiotic. I’m not sure she’s right about infection, years ago during my worst flare I had sores on all my toes, so I wanted to prevent that from repeating. Who knows maybe antibiotic will help.
Thanks for your concern and advice about Florida. Mom is 92, and I don’t really think I have much of a choice. Covid will not be over anytime soon. I’m vaccinated and boostered…
Be careful, stay out of indoor settings etc.
I’m sure you know what to do.
Be as well as possible- both of you.
