After my Neurology appointment last week my doctor and I decided to keep on doing what we have been doing. We think instead of only keeping me on the Lyrica, it would be best to still keep me on both the Lyrica and the Zonisamide even though they are both anticonvulsants and do pretty much the exact same thing. This high dose combination of both drugs seems to stave of my migraines the best and decreases the intensity of my everyday headaches quite a bit. My new blood pressure medication seems to be doing something…though I’m not sure if it’s enough to keep me on it or if we just need to increase the dose to achieve better results. I have one more appointment with my pediatric cardiologist then I have to switch to an adult provider who may or may not be open to other treatment options that my current doctor already ruled out. My online classes are nearing the finish line and my homebound classes may even finish a few weeks early so that has me more excited for summer and my Cali vacay than ever. I’m stoked that I’m back on track school wise and am feeling better and can’t wait to see my cousins in a few months. That’s all for now, I’ll fill y’all in some more next Monday.

As I am disabled and chronically ill, I have a unique perspective on the world and I try to let that come through in my writing. I am optomistically realistic, a outlook that has helped me deal both emotionally and mentally with my rollarcoaster of a life. As a wise old man once said "Look for the light and you will often find it, look for the dark and it is all you will ever see.". In terms of the future I hope to earn a degree in Psychology with a minor in Communications. I know that it will be a long and difficult journey, but ultimatly I beleive it will be worthwhile. Striving always to better myself and gain more insight and knowledge, I am open to constructive criticisim via email or private message. View all posts by thechronictypist
