Well I know it’s been a long time since I have written. I apologize to you all. I was in a depression for a long time because of many issues. Mostly involving freedom. On Monday, I was considered officially seizure-free for six months. So now I am able to drive on my own. I do not need to be driven around anymore. Sometimes this is a freedom that people take for granted. I don’t. I am very grateful to be able to drive by myself. Next week I am going down to visit one of my best friends and I am so excited. Life is looking up for me in certain areas. All though in the weight loss area I am still having trouble. I am looking forward and trying to keep positive. I’m happy and this is the happiest I have been for a while. I will update soon.
Well technically Mabon was yesterday, but it can be on either the 22 or 23. Mabon is the first day of Fall and to Wiccans or Pagans we celebrate it as one of our many Sabbats. Sorry I didn’t get to wish you a Happy Mabon yesterday. I hope you have a wonderful Fall your way!
Well today was my first Botox treatment. It was an early appointment and I was glad I got it out of the way this morning. The Botox treatment for migraines is where you get 31 shots in your shoulders, neck, back of the head, and face. The lady I see brought in three needles and stuck in different spots. She started in the shoulders. It was very painful, especially in the face. I have smallish bruises where she had to pinch in my forehead. So I am hoping that this will work with me. I’m very optimistic. My next treatment will be in three months and so I’ve got some waiting time ahead. Well, I will update you soon. Have a good night.
Merry Lammas everyone! Lammas is a Wiccan/Pagan holiday aka Sabbat celebrating the turning of the wheel where the corn is reaped along with the wheat. It is opposite from Imbolc on the wheel. So now Lammas is here we still are not officially into Fall, but it’s not long. Merry Lammas to you all!
I usually don’t stay away from my blogs this long, however, I have had a serious bout of depression and I just haven’t had interested in updating. Over the past month I have gained weight and my headaches have returned. I have had to use ice packs again. However, my depression is keeping me weighed down and I just don’t seem to want to do anything that I have wanted to do in the past. On the upside, I saw my headache specialist and she got me approved for botox shots. So I am calling tomorrow for an appointment for the botox shots for my migraines.
Today, I visited both a psychiatrist and a social therapist. The psychiatrist has upped my dose on my depression medicine to help with energy. I am seeing the social therapist again within two weeks. Hopefully, something will come of it. Lately, I just can’t help but feel sad and depressed. I’m just trying to deal with it everyday and it is very hard to do.
I’m sorry for the long update. I will talk soon.
Happy 4th of July! I hope everyone got the chance to celebrate this day with their family and to think of it as the day of our independence. Thank you to our forefathers, for without them we wouldn’t have our freedom! Have a good day!
Merry Summer Solstice (aka Litha or Midsummer)! The Wheel of the Year is turning and I can’t believe it is already halfway through the year. Today’s the longest day of the year and pretty soon Autumn will be upon us. I will be glad for that. I hope you have a good day.
