I have started taking the new medicine that the doctor prescribed for me. It has some interesting side effects, which are exacerbated by lack of sleep and dehydration. Apparently, I was suffering from lack of sleep or lack of water or both because this morning when I woke up, I was incredibly dizzy, like unable to stand up. I looked online for information and suggestions from other people who had used the same medicine. That's where I found the mantra "More sleep, more water". I did that and went into work late. For a day that started so oddly, it ended well. When I got to work, I had so many people coming to see if I was okay and how I was feeling. I had a few students come by just to tell me that they missed me and were worried about me. I had one person tell me that I looked like I had had a burden lifted off of me and that I looked better than I had in a long time. I also had one of the military recruiters tell me that he talks to a ton of students and they all tell him that I help them, even if I am not their counselor, and I usually help them even more than their own counselor. That is a little double edged in that I am glad that the students feel that I help them, but it concerns me that they don't feel that they are getting the help that they need from their own counselor. Considering everything else, I will go with being flattered right now. I'll deal with the rest of it later.
