I am at my witts end with this drug. I have been off for 4 months now and the post drug h*ll has finally raised its ugly head at work...
Two days ago I had problems with my ear and suddenly the hearing completely went out, and I fell to the floor, completely dizzy. I was alone in my classroom so I crawled to the phone for help. Finally someone came, and got me to a couch. But then every movement caused me to get so nauseous I was vommitting... in front of students!! Oh the humiliation!
I ended up at urgent care, where they told me that it was not an ear infection, but they did not know what it was (no surprise there... that's the only expected answer I get anymore). They drugged me up and sent me home. I'm somewhat better now, but feel like I am perpetually on a boat. I have been "benched" from going on our weeklong field trip next week with the students. I am too much of a liability.
I've made a lot of dumb mistakes in my life, but this mirena thing was by far the stupidest thing I have ever done...
Thanks for the pep talk. It makes me feel better to know that there is a light at the end of this very dark tunnel. I'm hoping that the 4 month period is the worst of it.
Today my heart totally sank when my husband said he wanted to go with me to the dr's this week because he wanted his wife back. All I could think was, "what if she doesnt come back?". I rarely leave the house on weekends anymore. I feel really bad, but after struggling all week to get to Friday, leaving the house just isn't in me anymore!
Thanks for the encouragement!
