The Botox is finally beginning to wear off a bit. The good news is that now my neck muscles can hold up my head long enough for me to wash my face. The bad news is that my neck muscles can now spasm. All in all this round has been terrible and I can't imagine putting myself through it again.

I won't see my migraine doc next until August 1st so I have some respite time here as the Botox continues to work it's way out of my body. No doubt the doc will want to increase my SNRI dose when I do see him but I'm already feeling quite overloaded in the med department so I'm not looking forward to doing that. I feel like there should be a better way than just giving me more and more medication. Often the temptation is to just stop taking all these pills. Have you ever?

What I'd like to do with these next 3 months is see if I can find a place to get acupuncture and continue to work on my "road to wellness" stuff. I just wish there was an answer. I wish I didn't have to do this. I wish my life was normal. I wish I could work.

Okay, enough feeling sorry for myself. This is my lot to deal with and I need to focus on moving forward and doing the best I can. Onward.

  1. I don't see the new neurologist until end of July so I know how hard it is to wait. I am not sure what new meds she may want me on. I only have prescription part D from disability so i can't afford a lot.

    I hope you find the acupuncture person soon so it will help with the migraines.
