Month since writing

Well, it's been a crazy month. I started on my fourth anti-depressant last night! They all give me headaches so bad, and the last one, Wellbutrin gave me the first Migraine I've had in almost ten years!
So, I'm on the fourth one, which I hope helps, sans headaches.

My work has also moved twice since the day before Thanksgiving, so that's been crazy, and now we have the holidays.
I can't believe it's already December 3! There's no time, no time!!! UGH!!

I saw my new Neurologist and she's wonderful!! I'm very optimistic and I finally have a true diagnosis. "Classic relapsing/remitting." She also said that I'm doing great and that Copaxone is obviously a great fit for me!!

I also told her how I feel guilty that I don't take the time to research and she looked at me quizzically and said, "Why would you need to research? That's my job. Your job is to take care of you and your family." Wow!! She also has a great staff of nurses that I can call pretty much anytime! That is wonderful!! So I'm very happy that I switched docs.

Another thing she told me was that I need to get 8 hours of sleep a night and a one hour nap during the day. HA!! That's funny!! Instead the anti-depressants have been waking me up at 5am. Ick! And my Dad said, "You just keep going and going." I do have more energy, but I feel tired. Weird. We'll see how this works out.

I hope you're all well. Happy Holidays!
