Yesterday I said I felt like I was at low tide and today I feel like I have sunk to the murky depths. I worked on the painting all day yesterday and my pain level ended up getting so bad I had to stop. It has been escalating for a couple of days and I am sure it is from increasing the meds again. I had a horrible night last tight and my anxiety level is also at an all time high (which has also happed when I have increased the meds before). So for now I need to stop working and rest my body until this Herxheimer reaction from increasing the meds calms down a bit.
Today I am going to do my mediation practice and some gentle yoga stretches to see if that helps settle things a bit. If things don’t calm down in a few days I will decrease the medications again.
I will post a photo of the face since that is all I really worked on yesterday.
