The past two weeks have been very violent, weather-wise. I’m sure most of you have heard about the weather systems pouring through Wisconsin. Tazz and I were at a waterpark in the Wisconsin Dells area when the first system of the week+ period of tornados and rain came through. We ended up getting home okay that night but saw many funnel clouds and dodged lots of lightning and rain. The area is flooded but luckily our house has been spared, for now, and the basement is dry.
The weather systems have been playing hell with my migraines, too. I’ve been using abortive drugs more than normal and I think it’s been killing my stomach too. Sigh, woe is me. I’m not to a point where I even want to consider going back onto antiseizure medications, but if my stomach is getting nailed, I bet my liver isn’t liking it. My doctor is finally getting me off of beta blockers by decreasing the dose. I forgot to refill the lower dose and today I’m going through, for a lack of a better term, withdrawal. My heart rate is usually pretty low, around 60bpm, with the beta blocker and with it being higher I feel weird. Stupid me for forgetting to get the pills earlier.
In any case, school will be over in a little over a month. Tazz and I are going to be driving out to Niagara Falls in August and camping in July and September. I’m hoping the mosquitos aren’t horrible in July!!
