Hi friends! I hope all is well with you. In between the July celebrations of Emerson's Golden Birthday (he turned 20 on the 20th) and Madeleine becoming an adult on the last day of July, I finished my August Joyful World SAL.
I asked the nurse to ask the neurologist if he could increase the dosage of my beta blocker so that I can get outside when it is hot and not be trapped indoors. If I
stay in the AC and do nothing, and never use the oven, the beta blocker
keeps my headache at a 1. That is not how I can live.I am hopeful with an increased dose I can go
outside when it is above 75º and not suffer. The nurse frustrates me. She says how wonderful this is to be at a 1. Yes. It is. BUT I WANT TO LEAVE THE HOUSE.
I decided I needed to "test" the beta blocker since I am staying
inside and being extra careful to not expose myself to heat. I would
like to be able to get out and do things again. I went for a walk in 78º, then used the oven upon returning home. That did it. And now I suffer. For four days straight. Imitrex and Indomethacin are not getting rid of it yet.I called the nurse
and asked for the increased dose. It actually took several calls. I am now on an increased dose. It takes TWO WEEKS for the dose to peak. So, here we go again.
Behold, God is my salvation,
I will trust and not be afraid;
‘For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song;
He also has become my salvation.’”
I am so glad to call you friend! Thank you for stopping in today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
