Happenings: Like I just mentioned, everyone around here has been sick. I also got the heart/blood test results back on Tuesday. Apparently I have a great heart (which is great, but I don't understand because its still acting all wonky), but I am anemic, pre diabetic, and depressed. I was prescribed Zoloft for the depression, prenatal vitamins for the anemia (and prenatals are nasty, I hated taking them when I was pregnant), and to lose weight to stop the diabetes from coming. Sounds all well and good, except I had a really bad reaction to the Zoloft. The side effects of Zoloft alone are nasty, but I accidentally took another medication I was prescribed (one for migraines) while taking it, and the side effects got worse. So I spent a grand total of three days on Zoloft before I went back to the doctor telling him I think I have serotonin syndrome because of that (I have most of the symptoms). He blew me off, they're getting worse, and I have an appointment with an urgent care center for later tonight. Serotonin syndrome is serious stuff, and can be fatal if left untreated. I think I would already be getting better if my doctor had listened to me on Friday. I am hoping this trip to urgent care can get me fixed, because all of this has been really scary.
King of the Nerds! I am super disappointed that two of my picks have been sent home so far (Nicole last week, Katie this week). And I will let you in on a secret, I had Zachary listed on my original post as one of my picks for winner after the first episode, but took him off it before I published it because his actions in the second show were very off-putting to me. His actions since have still been very off-putting, but to be fair, I think he has a real shot at winning this season. He is a very strong competitor, he just lacks people skills. And did anyone else think that hug between Katie and Brian went on for a little long when she was saying goodbye? Is there some chemistry there? I think they'd be cute together....just throwing that out there.
Read: Not gonna lie, I haven't been reading much lately. I haven't even had time to read magazines, how sad is that?
