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.

A chronically ill writer, I am a unique person letting my quirks come though in my creations. Not just a writer but a crafter, I love making something someone can enjoy. I'm a guard girl at heart trapped in a body that rejects her passion. Once struggling to see that the path may wind and twist, I now take each turn in stride. I ultimately want to become a Certified Child Life Specialist, helping kids overcome their fear of the hospital. Writing, as always, on the side. I try to look for the beauty in things and remeber that something good will come from the pain I have endured. As an 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." View all posts by thechronictypist
