Another day, another relapse

I am having another relapse. It's glorious. I called my neuro today, and have requested to try another course of steroids. I'm waiting to hear back on that. I'm also wondering if I'm having relapses because of the medication I'm on, or what. To be fair, I've had minor relapses on all the medications I've been on, so I don't know that changing it up would do any good.

As far as the MRI results, my brain hasn't gotten any worse, but it hasn't gotten any better. So it's the same old lesions, giving my the same old problems. Fun times.

Meanwhile, spring break is over, the kids have returned to school. There's only a few more weeks of school left, then it's summer vacation. I am not ready for summer vacation, especially if my health issues continue to persist. I foresee a lot a days spent in bed.

Also, I'm having a really hard time eating these days. My jaw is killing me, and my head aches so badly, that the food I do manage to eat usually comes right back up. It's not an entirely pleasant state to be in. Sometimes the smell alone is enough to send me to the bathroom. It makes feeding the family rather difficult.

The up shot to all of this is that I've been able to get some good reading in. And I've been able to stay on top of my homework pretty good. It's just annoying that I can go from feeling so danged good to barely being able to stand up, over night.
