Been busy the past few weeks and really haven’t had much to blog about. Â I’ve found that Twitter fills in my need to broadcast to the world more often than writing up a formal post. Â Half the time I get through writing a post I realize I’ve been babbling and end up deleting it.
The migraines have been pretty consistent lately. Â I get 1-2 attacks a week with most of them responding fairly quickly to over the counter medication. Â I talked briefly with my neurologist this week and he said if OTC is doing the job, then we don’t have to look at going back on to anti-seizure medications any time soon. Â I don’t take enough of the NSAIDs for them to be an issue with my liver at this point. Â I’d like to be on a prophylactic medication but the side effects from the ones I have been on aren’t really ideal for me. Â Topamax had such a positive effect on the migraines but making me turn into a stupid idiot was difficult to handle.
School has been going well over the summer. Â I’ve been making headway on my iPhone migraine diary and may even have something out there by the end of summer. Â I have to remember I’m not doing this to make money on the iTunes store, but rather get a good grade for my graduate Capstone project. Â Rushing to get it out to the market isn’t what I would consider a good idea. Â However, if I got real world users to help with the process along the way, that could make for a very good final presentation. Â On a good note, my neurologist is totally on board with helping me with the application!
Summer is FINALLY here in Wisconsin and we’re having our first 90+ degree day. Â Can’t say I’m thrilled for the heat and high humidity, but it’s nice to have the body clock reset after a really long winter.
