For once in the last two months I've actually been able to smile a few times, and work seems to go pretty well for the most part.  I have my ups and downs but so does everyone, but all in all its not NEGATIVE all day anymore.  I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel here.  My hands still shake a little and the headache isn't as much pressure anymore, it's more of a tingling sensation now.  I dont know if thats good or bad, but I'm assuming better then pressure.
One thing that gets me crazy still though is my forgetfulness.  I forget things I've done as recent as a night ago, last night I made a phone call and txtd a few people and I have no recollection of even doing so at all.  Things like that blow my mind and get me mad at myself.  But all in all I guess things are looking up though.

HI mike i dont know if you take any anti-depressants or anything but i know memory loss can be a side effect of many AD's or SRI's. When i took the medication cymbalta i had a great deal of memory loss. I noticed when i discontinued taking it,i got better. So if you are taking any meds you might want to research the side effects because it could very well be that.
