Insomnia; IVIG, Just Kidding!

I used to have insomnia issues all the time

Update (Attempt) – Relapse/Rebound

I still can’t see so this will be very basic. I had double vision for a while, oscillopsia (with nausea), all topped off with blurred vision. Vision is still very blurry and slightly doubled (maybe oscillopsia again but not as severe; no nausea) . I was so nauseous I could hardly eat or even move my head left or right. Weight loss, yay! My balance is horrible but I ditched the walker and am back on the cane. I feel like if my vision would get better everything else would follow. I rely on my vision so much for balance… I need to start working my legs out because that is where I can tell I have lost the most muscle mass; I really feel it when trying to get up from (lets say) sitting on the floor. But without vision I don’t have the balance to do things like squats, hell, I can barely get around some days. This mostly started with motor issues like the inability to produce rapidly repeating/alternating movements on my left side only. Now it’s either not as bad or masked by all my visual and balance symptoms. This is not nearly as bad as when I spent all that time in the hospital/physical rehab back in 2012 but this is definitely second place… Doesn’t help when insurance denies things and my doctor’s office doesn’t want to do anything. I should have stayed in Colorado, risked PML, and found a new neurologist out there because I would have avoided all of this. Oh well, if I can go to school and start an actual career I can move back with lots of money/stability and a reliable car so it will work out; I am just really impatient.

That’s it for now, my eyes hurt, even on this big screen I am using (see picture above).
