Hi everyone. I only got 4 comments on my last entry so I guess nobody loves me anymore . Well for the few of you who are interested in what goes on in my life, I have decided to give u an update...
Midterms were great. I made As in all 6 of my classes. Fall break, however wasen't so great. Sitting at home with nothing to do for 2 days reminded me of how depressed I was in high school and made me realize how greatful I am that I am in college away from that hell hole (my room) and I have so many friends to hang out with here who accept me for who I am. I also found out one of my good friends here can not see on her left side so she isn't allowed to drive neither but she didn't even have a stroke. She was just born that way. She did get a license though and she assured me that I will most likely get mine too in time. As for other school news, I am now president of the Individuals with Disabilities club, I will be speaking on the show airing on the community channel, and I WILL be riding in the Homecoming parade on Saturday as Miss Individuals with Disabilities! I am so excited about that.
In other news, I had an appointment with my pain management doctor yesterday. I discussed with him the concerns I had about the baclofen and he lowered my dosage. He assured me that the baclofen won't cause me to have seizure unless I abruptly stopped taking it and he lowered my dosage. Starting tonight, I will take half of the pill (5 mg) 3 nights in a row. Then I will take half in the morning and at night for 3 days. If I continue to not experience any problems I will start taking the half 3 times a day and in 3 weeks, I will move up to the regular dosage of 10 mg 3 times a day. I sure hope this works. Because of the cold weather I have been having pains in my arm and shoulder and just recently the back of my ankle feels like its pulling each time I walk. I also want to meet with the doctor who makes my brace because I just got it this summer but have not worn it ever since I started college because it hurts my foot so bad. but I do believe it helps me walk better so hopefully I can meet with him soon about fixing it for the 3rd time.
Well I have to go start on a 3 page paper which is due tomorrow as well as some other work so bye.
