weird mental states. @ 08:40 pm

Mood: cheerful cheerful
Music: Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

So, yesterday Dave njbigbear and I finally figured out what was causing my weird and quickly varying mental states. One minute I was OK, next minute angry about something that we couldn't put our fingers on, next minute balling my eyes out and then back to angry, etc... It's been going on for a week or so.

For the infected insect bites on my leg, I've been on 2000mg Augmentin-XR twice a day, tomorrow will be day#10 and the last day. The Augmentin-XR course followed doxycycline, 7 day course.

Yesterday I experienced two sets of swings, one set in the afternoon while I was packing for camp and the second one started about 1 1/2 hours after I took my evening meds, with the jitters and a fit of crying, then I started getting snippy, then more crying. You get the picture. Think really bad PMS without the cramps and womyn-parts. Later in the day we figured out that it was the Augmentin-XR.

Fortunately I only have two sets of the pills left and I was OK this morning because we ate a big breakfast at the FlyingJ outside of Hillside.

The meds are working but the side effects are rather annoying.
