So sometimes the Gabapentin + Pregabalin – the medication I’m on for my TMD & Trigeminal Neuralgia (and what a lovely couple they make!) – knocks me sideways. I’ve been very proactive in reducing and adjusting my medications – with my GP’s consent – to the minimum, to maximise my ability to function, even where that means I live with a level of discomfort; but sometimes, all the same, the meds just come whooshing in from the side and take me with them.
Yesterday was such a day; and amongst other things on those days, my body shuts my brain out of the loop and becomes a hound in pursuit of sweet things, I suspect because my poor body is looking for a stimulant to drag me above the muddy waters of medication-induced-confusion.
Happily the day was saved by a batch of Nutprococo I’d made earlier in the freezer; and I’m soooo glad I did, because today I don’t have a food hangover and I dare step on the scales.
