Yesterday we also saw dr. barry. Our apt went well. Dr. Barry was sick with a cold, she’s always getting sick with coughs or colds. She said she blames her kids for that lol. Anyway, we talked about respite and I filled her in on how my week went there. I told her about the independent living skills course and that I’d applied to do it. I told her my mom wasnt too enthusiastic about it but that she hadnt given a reason. After talking about that we talked a little about therapy this week. And about Eileen’s upcoming holiday. Dr. Barry said we could get extra support from her while eileen was away. I was so thankful of that. Then I told her I had something to tell her. I keep getting dizzy every time I go from sitting to standing, or when I get out of bed, or bed over and stand back up. I get light headed and feel like I’m about to fall over. I havent actually fallen over but I’ve come very close. And with me living alone I’m very worried about it. Dr. Barry said its called posteral hypertention. She said its probably my lyrica thats causing my blood pressure to drop. She said she’d reduce my morning dose from 150 mg to 75 mg to see if that makes a difference. She also wants to refer me for a 24 hour blood pressure monitor. She’s going to talk to my gp about it. I love that dr. Barry is a general doctor too, because it means I can talk to her about medical stuff thats going on with me. It was a good appointment though and I go back next wednesday to see her again.
