Janow leaves today
Janow leaves for Knightsen today. Maureen is taking him. I was hoping the trailer would be done before the winter rains set in, but they have set in. The rains I was originally concerned with were the rains of winter '09. He is going here for a month. It is about an hour and 20 minutes by car.
I have begun taking a new medication to prevent migraine headaches. I was very hopefully. Twenty five mg for 7 days,
50 mg for 7 days,
75 mg for 7 days,
finally 100 mg is the lowest effective dose and you have to take that for 2 months or so before it becomes effective.
By the time I got up to 100 mgs per day, I was in so much pain because all my joints became inflamed, and I was so tired I could hardly move, but my thought processes were so adversely effected that I was not really able to say "Hay, this medication is bad." Now I am going back down in the dose. I can't stop cold turkey without risking seizures. I may be a normal person again soon.
