I've been to a neurologist for my migraines finally. It was a disappointment. I didn't particularly like the man, but then I didn't think I would considering there isn't any headache certified neurologists in the Treasure Valley area. I did get the medication research showed would help the type of migraines I think I have, so that's at least a plus. My migraines are on the decline.
On a related note, the medication I'm on is an appetite suppressant. My regular doctor had originally suggested this medication simply on the basis that I need to lose weight. Poor reasons, but it was as good a reason as anything else given his knowledge of migraines (my regular doctor is an internal doctor, and migraines aren't exactly his specialty either). I figured if anything, I could at least take advantage of this feature of the medication to take control of my eating habits to start eating healthier.
Which I have. In the last 4 weeks since I started taking my medication I've lost 10 pounds. I've got a follow up with my new neurologist next week, then my regular doctor two weeks again after that. Hopefully I can lose even more by then.
On a different note, my mother and I are making plans to move across the other side of the country. She's retired now, and wants to live closer to our family. It's going to a nightmare to do that, and planning the logistics of it all is going to be a nightmare. In the meantime, we're going through the process of noting down what needs to be fixed in our current house so we can get it ready for sale.
I'm not looking forward to it. Mostly because I don't really want to live in the south. But I really want to live closer to my family, and I think it will be a good think in the long run for us. It will just be a hard thing to go through.
And so it goes
Other things are going well. A few financial things lingering on from my divorce have finally fallen off, which is only of the good. I've been thinking of taking some online classes to get some programming certifications later on, so that will make things easier. Writing has been much easier for me these days too, both fan fiction and original. Maybe some day something of it will be published. I've actually got about five fan fiction stories on the go right now that I've not put online yet, and another six book ideas that are on the back burner for the future.
I'm going on vacation mid June to see my sister for a bit. Hope all is going well with y'all.
