Quick Update

First, I want to thank everyone for their emails. I had no idea that there were so many of you who read my blog. It was very sweet. I'm sorry that I haven't been writing much lately, but that will hopefully pass. I'm going through a combination of things right now, so I'll jsut give you a quick update today and hopefully I can break through this horrible writer's block by writing at least something, today. lol

I am doing better in alot of ways and in other ways things are the same. The Duragesic patch is working miracles for me. Am I completely healed? Not by a long shot, but I do get relief about 40% of the time. My daily pain level has dropped from 7-9 to 5-7. IT makes those really bad days easier to bear, knowing that they won't last forever, and there will be some kind of an end in sight.

The cool thing is that I've been able to get out of the house occasionally which has done wonders for my psyche. It's so bizarre to go out to lunch with my mom and a couple of her friends and find it hyper-stimulating! lol And, to have such an appreciation for being able to do that that it almost brings tears to my eyes to think of it. I mean, that sounds so pathetic, but it's sort of like being released from solitary imprisonment.

The Adderall, which is the medication that my doctor put me on to keep me awake and counter the drowsy side-effects of the duragesic patch, is working great. It's also an ADD medication and, since I have ADD, that's the perfect med for me to be on. I am going to talk to him about upping the dosage today, though. I'm having a very hard time hanging onto a complete thought, which is also giving me problems with my writing, and we just can't have that, can we? I think if we tweak the dosage, we'll get to the point where I can form a complete thought and carry it through from beginning to end. lol I know that sounds silly probably, but it's a typical ADD symptom. I just can't keep my attention on any one thing for very long and get bored extremely quickly with EVERYTHING. lol It's so frustrating. But, I'm beginning to feel like my "old self" again. The person I was before that quack put me on Lamictal, the bi-polar drug that I was on for over a year. I'm so much happier, now. That medication was so depressing. Ugh!

ok, well, that's it for now. I'll try to write again, soon, but if I don't write for a couple more weeks, don't worry, it's just because my brain isn't cooperating with me. Thanks for hanging in there with me, guys.

Thanks for the update Jess- I've missed you and been worried about you.

Better living through chemistry, as always, so refine that dose as well as you can.

We'll be here.

So glad for the update; unfortunately, no news translates as mostly bad news! Happy to hear it's not. Sometimes we're so grateful for the little things, like being able to enjoy our families. It's great that you're able to do that again. Happy holidays--
