Meds re-acquired, though I won't actually get them until tomorrow.

Back on Wellbutrin, on a regular anxiety med (as opposed to the as-needed, "shut this panic attack down now" kind) for the first time ever (buspirone, if anyone has any experience with that they'd like to share), and atenolol to mitigate the probably POTS-related symptoms.

The physician assistant who was seeing me really did not want to put me back on atenolol without talking to a cardiologist first, and I was seriously about to start crying because without the atenolol I have the worst brainfog and struggle to do literally anything... aaand then they did an EKG and apparently that was just concerning enough that she gave in on that. Viiictory? Sort of?

I have an order for bloodtests and am working on a referral to a cardiologist, and hopefully I'll manage to get some kind of diagnosis out of someone some time this year. That would be amazing.

I also got my new glasses in the mail. Including sunglasses! (Which is great, because Wellbutrin in particular has a tendency to turn me into Georgia Mason. Worth it, but annoying as hell.) They keep sliding down my nose and focusing at any kind of distance is... interesting right now, but they are new and they don't have any scratches on them at all! It's very exciting.

Good luck with all the meds stuff! Wellbutrin was one of the best ones I was ever on (minimal side effects with good payoff).

New glasses are always fun!
