I know I haven’t portrayed life as butterflies and rainbows lately.  Things have been rough, and I’m not going to lie about that.  But there are some positive things going on too.  

I’m learning to take better charge of my health, to make the calls to the doctors when things don’t seem quite right, and make sure that my thoughts are heard.  Recently this week I was confronted with the decision of continuing to take a medication that had side effects of suicidal thoughts and depression, or try something different.  While the medication had been working fairly well at abating my migraines, I wanted to go a different route.  I didn’t come to this decision while in the doctor’s appointment however, because things always seem like a whirl wind.  But when I called back to the office later, I actually got to speak with my neurologist on the phone and came up with a better plan.  I was pretty happy about that.
I’ve also been receiving cards and e-mails from friends with messages of support.  I greatly appreciate it, because I really need people behind me through all of this.
I meet my new counselor tomorrow, I hope things go well.  It would be an understatement to say that I am very very nervous.  I never now how to figure out if  I need a referral, or how to get one if I do.  I know for sure I need a referral after my 4th visit, but not sure how to go about doing that.
I’m really beginning to like yoga.  I do yoga on the Wii Fit as well as from a DVD my mom bought me for people with Fibromyalgia.  I want to take a couple classes, so I can start doing my own routine, depending on how I feel a certain day.  I need a yoga mat, looking for donations.
I suppose that is all that fits into this category.
