Thanks Nancy. I've been taking a pretty agressive combo of preventive meds that keeps the pain and severity of symptoms at bay (most of the time). I take 2000 mg of Keppra, 750 mg of Depakote and 20 mg of Timolol. That keeps me "functional". So I still can have tinnitus, vertigo, dizziness, blurry vision, numbness, headache, sensitivity to light and sound, difficulty understanding and concentrating but it takes a shorter time to recover and the severity of the symptoms are usually less. The exhaustion is killing me right now though. I've had my eyes checked and they are fine. And I still don't know exactly what my triggers are. Still learning I guess. My husband is extremely supportive and helps as much as he can, but he needs to go work gigs at night so sometimes I have no choice but to be alone and take care of the kids. I think I need to see a counselor, just don't know how to fit it in between not driving and having to leave work early or needing to work from home. I talked to my boss today and she said that in cases where it is medically necessary, the company might consider letting an employee work 32 hours. Before they had said no, period. I might have to talk to the neuro about it. It is less money, but I am feeling like I can't keep this pace and have any quality of life (I'm also on day 5 of a migraine, so maybe I'll think differently in one or two days. Who knows?) I also told her I need to let go of the stress and pressure I am putting on myself cause that can't contribute at all to me being healthy. Here's hoping you are feeling well and upbeat!
