Well, sometimes it seems like not much changes. But I suppose that's life with a chronic illness.
Here are the updates:
Disability: I have a lawyer. The first claim she put through was denied. So we're appealing that one right now.
Symptoms: My headache doesn't go away...ever. I do have good days and bad days, with continuing fatigue, nausea, and body aches.
Functionality: I need extra rest each day, but I'm still going to school pretty successfully. I still cannot drive alone. So I'm relying on my incredible family for all transportation. I'm also exercising as much as I can. I go to yoga with my mom once a week, and I do home workout videos and exercise when possible.
Doctors: I saw Dr. Grubb a few weeks ago. He thinks I should work on getting around without the wheelchair more often, which I am starting to do. It's just very exhausting. We still haven't decided if we should make another appointment in New York.
