Thanks, Jokat. :) I will keep my chin up and remain hopeful that I can find a treatment that helps.
Work has been rough, until I talked with my boss yesterday. She is unbelievably understanding and was the person who encouraged me to find a doctor in Boston, where they would be more familiar with the latest available treatments. I am quite blessed, as far as that goes.
I decided that, today, I am going to do everything I can to keep a positive attitude and focus on what I am still able to do well. I'm going to try to forget about
the overwhelm and discouragment I've been plagued with over the last few weeks and try to make a fresh start once again. Today on my way to work, I said to myself "It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it." So, I'm going to break down everything on my desk into very small, workable tasks. I think I just need to have a couple of productive days and I will feel a little better. My ego needs a little boost.
Oh, different subject - what do you do (or anyone else here) for exercise? Do you run/jog?
