The other day I finally got my new glasses and wow, it’s amazing how fast you can grow to think that the way you see the world is normal because when I put them on everything is so much more clear! After I first received them and put them on I was walking to the car and I felt like I was going to fall into (through) everything I was looking at; it was like when all the HD TV’s first came out and you would see them on display in the store and everyone thought “wow, it looks like I am looking out a window”. So it took my eyes a couple days to adjust but they seem “stable” now except not really… See, the more fatigued I feel the crazier my vision gets and this last week the “Lemtrada fatigue” has been so horrible so my vision has been all over the place.
OK, I may have been a little premature in celebrating the fact that I got a new prescription for Ritalin. Yes, I felt pretty decent the first day though I felt nothing like I did when I was on it a couple years ago. “Maybe I have just built a tolerance and need a higher dose?” I thought. So after I wrote that post the other day I doubled the dose, 10 mg and then, a few hours later, I took a third dose of 10 mg. It just did not seem to be doing what it should have; what it did the last time I was on it. The next day (yesterday) I started at 10 mg in the morning and then 15 mg at noon. Despite all that I was still crazy tired like any other day and decided there was no point in taking a third dose.
I am so happy, I got a new prescription for Ritalin the other day, picked up my medication from the pharmacy last night and started taking it this morning. Last time I was on it my brain was going at light speed. After a while, it stopped working for me and I did not want to up the dose at the time, I thought I would be fine on my own. Well, my fatigue has been so bad lately! I wake up at 6:00 am and am out of energy by noon despite doing nothing! I needed some sort of medical intervention for sure!
Yes! It has been a while! The longest break from blogging I have taken since I started blogging in 2010 right after my diagnosis! Well, I took a break for many reasons but let’s start with the most obvious; my new blog! I wanted a “fresh start” and since I started out on blogger, a free blogging website, I thought I would try the more “professional” blogging platform WordPress. You probably won’t notice many differences at first because I tried to make this blog look like what my old blog looked like which was surprisingly more difficult than I thought it would be – who would have thought? Maybe this is just too new for me but I don’t know, it’s up. So let’s do some catching up.
