While I have still been dealing with depression and anxiety, my physical health is a much bigger issue. I have a migraine that has been going on for over a month and while it has improved with treatment, it never goes away completely and the pain always goes back to excruciating after 3 or 4 hours. My neurologist has tried different infusion therapies with the same results. When I go in for these treatments they can't get an IV and I'm covered in bruises. I am taking a medication to prevent migraines but this one is not going away. On a related note, I convinced my neurologist to do an MRI with contrast and it showed a small spot on the back left of my brain. I’m not sure if it’s related, but I have static in my vision that never goes away, along with random white flashes. The recommendation is to just repeat the MRI in six months, though with everything that is going on (and since the original MRI was before the migraine started) I am not sure what the course of treatment will be.
I will wait until my next entry to write about how I’m settling into my very solitary life. I will leave you with an apology for complaining.
