That’s how the doctor’s edict is feeling these days. I am running from the morning until the evening just trying to live a normal life. I am job hunting, working, cleaning, reading, mending, parenting, seeing doctors, and eating like a normal person. So far it appears that I can live a moderately normal life, even if I am really excited when bedtime arrives at ten.
In one week I start the new medication to handle the nerve pain. Until then it’s reset my circadian rhythms to see if it helps make the headaches go away.
I have to say I am at least distracted from them by doing. I managed law school with migraines and I always thought it was because my brain just compartmentalized the pain into a tiny corner and focused on Evidence. I think the past few years there has been less of an ability to compartmentalize. My hope is a regular schedule and a non-coma inducing treatment will result in me once again being able to kick ass.
