I love fall weather, totally not a fan of all the germs around here. Since I started back in school I have been sick every other week. Bring on my plastic bubble please :) Currently I think I have an ear infection. Not sure I want to go to the doctor yet, may see if goes away in a couple of days. The next time I go to my new doctor I am going to talk her about how to boost my immune system, other than just taking supplements, cause I do that now. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.
So I never reported about my new doctor. Her name is Dr. Ene. She is a doctor and professor and deals with adults with CP. She seemed really nice and had a lot of ideas. One being counseling. She says that she can see I am having a difficult time with my disability and that it might help if I had someone to talk to. She asked me if I thought I would ever find someone to love me even though I have a disability...I told her no and she said I was wrong. Sometimes I don't tell people I date that I have CP, I just pray that they don't notice I walk funny or always have my hands in fists. Makes me sound really pathetic doesn't it.
The doctor increased my dose of Baclofen. She says that it will take about six weeks to take effect. So far I see no difference, its been 3 weeks. Baclofen also makes me sleepy, so I am not a fan. She also mentioned a surgical procedure that would but a Baclofen pump into me that would allow me to inject the medicine directly into my spine. This is suppose to make it work faster and keep it from going into my brain, which makes the side effect of sleepiness go away. The idea of surgery scares me, so she said there are a few other medications I can try before then. Opinions on this are welcome.
I can't wait until I have a break from school. Its not until December, but I am counting down the days.
Love and Hugs,
