Depressed woman today – feel free to ignore.
Mel: So when’s this Botox supposed to start working
Neurologist: In about a week
Mel: And how will I know it’s working
Neurologist: You wont have any migraines
Well it’s been about a week and I still have a migraine. I woke last night due to the pain in my head being so bad and was awake most of the night. This is actually worse than normal 😦
Had a bad week for triggers. I went out a lot this week, I think I left the house three days and was in the yard at least once every other day and heard sounds (all people-induced – screaming, whistling, yelling, rave parties) that set off the migraines each day). Some days I had fresh migraines while still feeling the hangover after effects of the previous migraine.
Every time I get excited about taking a step forward I seem to follow it up with two steps backwards …
My short-term memory is getting worse and worse. I’m literally forgetting things from one moment to the next. Like microsleeping but with sections of my memory. I put the cereal away this morning then poured the milk into my bowl, went to put the milk away and discovered I had put the cereal in the fridge exactly where the milk goes.
When we were out driving yesterday, we were passing some road works and I wasn’t sure mum had the right of way to go onto the other side of the road to go past the workmen. She reminded me we had past the stop/go worker not 3 seconds ago. I had already forgotten.
These are things you laugh at old people for doing, or are part of a slapstick movie. This should not be part of my life that proves I am incapable of living on my own or driving a car.
