Hi everyone! I think it’s long past time for an update.
Life has been pretty busy for me lately. I’m almost done with my first term back in college and it’s going well! I’m very much enjoying being back and having something to occupy my brain. I definitely needed it. I’m already registered for summer classes and that’s when i’ll start diving in to social work classes. I can’t wait!
Health wise, things have been holding fairly steady. Unfortunatly that means daily pain but it hasn’t been getting worse. I just had a nerve block done Monday, so hopefully that will keep my pain levels lower than normal for awile. This spring I will be talking to my neurologist about more permenent options to help with the Occipital Neuralgia. I have been responding well to blocks, so that means I should respond well to surgery or an ablation. Would definitley be nice to not have to deal with that pain anymore! I also am going to start looking into surgical options for the Trigeminal Neuralgia again. Something to get me more consistent and lasting relief.
I am very thankful to have been able to get my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine last weekend. The vaccine I recieved was the Moderna one. The only side effects I had were the sore arm and some fatigue. I don’t get my second one until the end of March. If you’re eligable and get the chance to get it, please do…. herd immunity is the only way we’ll be able to get back to a normal life and end the pandemic.
