It has been a good day for visitors. My Aunt Michelle came over to see me and to pick up some packages. I had 2 lessons. Rachel and Isaac are doing very well. I am thankful that I can teach a bit. It gives me something to look forward to each day. That one hour or one and a half hour where the students are here really makes my day better.
My head was a bit more sore than usual today just like yesterday. I have noticed that the dry mouth I was having has stopped. I think it is because I dropped down the dosage of the headache medicine. I am also not having the visions that I was before so it is better all around. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever be able to do more than what I can do right now. I am not sure, I don't focus on this, I just wonder every so often. I am trying to manage the symptoms better with vitamins and healthier food instead of just medicine. I take so many that it feels like I take a pharmacy of pills. I know that they help, but I would rather not take so much. At this point, I cannot stop taking any of them. I had thought about not taking the anxiety medicine, but then I realized that my anxiety is not as bad since I do take the medicine twice a day so it would not be in my best interest to not take it. I guess that is the same with a lot of people who take medicine. They think they are doing well and won't need the medicine. I have started taking vitamin D, a different dosage of iron (since the old one was not doing it's job enough), a vitamin just for eyes (I have macular degeneration), and calcium. I am looking at more natural supplements that may make it easier for me to take less medicine. I also am working on losing all this excess weight. I need to work on balance too since my balance is not so good. I get good giggles when I think how I used to dance everywhere. I was a very serious dancer when I was in my late teens and early to mid 20s. I loved dance so much. I was headed to Broadway until I got sidetracked with Fibro. Fortunately, my dance teacher started me teaching. Without that, it would have been worse. When we lost the music store, I wasn't sure I would ever be able to work again. I was a train wreck. I had stopped teaching for a while because I just couldn't do it. I know I will never be able to work retail again. However, as time passes it no longer bothers me. I am happy with what I do.
Well, time to read a bit, have a tea and then head for bed.
