So here I am. Taking the next big step to making it all worth while: today I am decreasing my medication, as discussed with the doctor, to see if I can really cash this one in. Today I am taking 1500mg of Diamox, instead of 2000mg (I skipped my afternoon dose) and I am continuing this for three months. My doctor asked me to document my progress, so that is what this blog is for - to force me to document (otherwise I'll forget about it!).
Today has gone fine, so far. It is three hours past when I normally take my afternoon dose and, typically, I would be freaking out without it. However, I made a declaration last night, which I will repeat again here:
THIS IS GOING TO WORK.
In three months, I will be down to two pills, and maybe, a year from now I can start talking about having a baby.
That is the path to wellness, along with continuing to eat right, staying stress-free (or as close as any human can manage that), and enjoying life. This is my blog to wellness, to help me document the journey.
