I haven't posted in awhile. Where have I been? Well, we went on vacation, we had house guests, we've both been working extra hard for extra hours... etc, etc. It's been fun, but stressful too.
I feel like I'm just starting to appreciate (if that's the right word) just how hard this fight is going to be. For the first time, I couldn't do everything I wanted to on my vacation, at least not without some reservations. I couldn't stay up with everyone and drink and play cards or dominoes all night long. I didn't have as much enthusiasm about decorating the table or arranging games or making fancy desserts or starting a singalong as I usually do; I was just too exhausted. My neurologist called my cell phone (on a Sunday, can you believe it?) and helped me work out a medication schedule that was a little better, and I had a lot of fun anyway. It would take an awful lot to ruin my good time when I'm with my family, that's for sure!
I just have to learn new coping skills, and I'd better hurry up, because Bob and I are going to Disneyland for our 26th wedding anniversary in September!
