As the Topamax is now gone, I’m seeing some improvement in many areas. My short-term memory is improving. I’m not stopping every five minutes, lost in my thoughts. This is a wonderful thing! My typing is much better and faster. The dyslexia in typing is almost gone.
After the bad Migraine Aura, I had another one that started on Thursday. I was outside in the bright sun, and had been having vision issues. The crescent-shaped aura appeared in my left-eye vision. I went inside quickly and closed my eyes. The aura stopped and I was so relieved! Those auras are not painful, but it’s what comes after that hurts. Thankfully, no migraine occurred.
While the withdrawal was fading away, I caught a terrible cold. My son came home from college with the cold and now I have it. Hubby is also starting to sneeze. It’s really hard to feel content when you feel lousy, isn’t it. I know that my illnesses are part of my life.
I’ll keep looking for God’s blessings even when I am suffering. There are many of them: blue sky, provision for my family, and love of family. Though I often fall into ungratefulness, I will continue to be content in the life I have.
Deuteronomy 6:5 – And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
