Goodbye January – Hello February

Goodbye January - Hello February

Wow what a long month that was. Finally it is time to say Goodbye January – Hello February, where we are nearing the Spring and warmer weather.

January and C

As always I will start with C, she has been ill for 4 years now, you may have read my living with ME 4 years on post, where I spoke about our 4 year battle.  January has been quite a tough month. In December we finally had her Neurologist appointment, which went really well. He sat and listened asked questions, and more importantly told her he will treat the problem.

She has been living with 24/7 migraines constantly for 4 years now. Up until now the only release she had was from her first lumbar puncture.  I was told a letter would be sent to our GP of the new medication and increase times.  Christmas came and went and I phoned the hospital the beginning of January. To be told it was waiting authorisation to go out.  Rang beginning of the following week, and was told the truth, that the letter had been missed and not sent.  Lots of phone calls later, our GP finally had it. Then after a little breakdown from me got to pick the prescription up that day.

The New Medication

I knew the main side effects, drowsiness and loss of appetite before we started them.  C hated them you could see how wiped out they were making her feel, and then after a few days her appetite went.  Which has resulted in me walking down the road and back numerous times getting her something she fancies to eat.  Two weeks later we did the next increase which she is still on (next increase is next week).

I was starting to lose hope that these were not the tablets for her, as I ask each day if there is any improvement on her head.  Then on Tuesday, she told me her head felt a little better.  On Wednesday her tutor popped in to say hello, which is the first time since before Christmas as she has been too ill. Yesterday, I had to pop out and asked if she would like to come with me, and she said yes.  We only went to Tesco, but I was ecstatic and could not stop smiling.

Today she is wiped out and in a lot of pain, but happy she went out yesterday, so am hoping next month I can share some more positive news as well.

I have struggled this month, with my emotions and the sadness and frustration I have been feeling. You may have read my post Why I am Struggling, where I opened up to you all. It is hard and despite my cheery self I do struggle daily, but hoping now we are seeing results this will change.
