I remember having my daughter playing let's be Mommy's shadow today. I hope you can get some relief, Dan.
How are you doing, Coquitlam? I saw in another area that you had a pretty rough few days there! I remember days like that. The times when I didn't even want to swallow because even that made the migraine escalate. I had a continuous migraine for over 3 months back in 1998. I will never forget it. The neurologist kept giving me new medicines that were preventives. He told me at every visit that I must be depressed. Because I usually cried. Well, I told him, you would cry too, if you had a migraine every day, all day, and you couldn't get any relief. I begged him to give me something, anything, to make the migraine stop. He finally had me bring in my husband at my next visit so the doctor could give me a shot and my husband could drive me home.
I asked why he didn't do that sooner. He said he was waiting to see which drug he prescribed would be the one that worked best. I switched doctors.
I'm still having migraines, but not too many really bad ones. The ones I'm getting are milder and I'm acting quickly with Advil Liquid gel capsules. It's amazing that I'm getting relief within an hour or two as long as I lie down and rest. I have had a couple of days when I get a second migraine, but again, if I treat it quickly, I can sometimes get quick relief. What a difference.
My blood sugar is still not really under control, but it's so much lower than it was before. Part of the trouble is that sometimes it gets TOO low. They explained that my blood was keeping just about all of the glucose that our organs need. Now that my diet and the medication is helping the sugars get to where it's supposed to be going, my body is being much happier with me. Now it's a matter of getting the proper balance so the blood sugar is at the right level. The news was definetly a shock, but I'm glad to know now. It's only been a couple of weeks and I still need for info. I'm heading for the library today. There are plenty of web sites about diabetes but I need something I can hold in my hand.
