Doctors Update

So yesterday I went to see both my primary doctor and nuro since last weekend I had 3 seizures and the last couple of weeks I am been pretty out of control with my body. Being tired and mentally drained.

I meet with my doctor and reviewed everything and that seemed ok with my meds I take. I than saw my nuro and after discussing my recent seizures it was decided that I will be taken off my Topamax and be put on Divalproex. But for the next 30 days I will be taking both since I just can't stop taking the ones I have been on.

It's obvious that the ones I have been on just aren't working as we need them to be and they also are causing my headaches I found out. My new meds will also allow me to sleep better as I can only take them at night per my doctor. They are alot stronger and make me drowsy. Last night was my first night taking them and boy did they make me relax. I woke up this morning and felt so refreshed. I am curious to see how they do tonight as well since today I have been go go go since I haven't felt tired at all.

So it's back to the drawing board basically, to start a new medication and see how this new one does. I know it it's all trial an error with these things as everyone is different, but all I can do is wait and see, and take one day at a time.


So back to work tomorrow and than it's the weekend. I spent a good couple of hours today on the computer going over my open enrollment packet and getting things registered and signed up. I hate that crap! Some of the plans are just so confusing. But at least for the most part I got everything signed up and just have to review a couple things and than submit it all tomorrow.

That's about all going on here. I still feel energized and didn't even get a nap in today. LOL. Crazy. Hope all is well.
