Ganesha Rocks

(no subject)

Last night, Jessica's headache finally broke. 3+ months of unbroken migraine Hell finally eased off. The Prednisone did the trick, apparently. Of course, we're dealing with the fact now that it makes her sick, but tomorrow starts the weaning-off process, so, light at the end of the tunnel and all. Earlier today, she paused and mentioned that she'd been in so much pain for so long this time, it actually felt odd to not hurt. Hopefully, the Depakote will help to prevent this from happening again, but that remains to be seen. In the meantime, though, it's just nice to know she's more free, less in pain.

In trying to look for possible triggers, we're trying out a couple things. We already have so little caffeine that it made little sense to cut it out, and we already quit drinking. Two days now, she's had no cigs, and apart form one twitchy nic-fit, she's doing very well with it. Also, she's going back to doing the vegetarian/vegan thing...which, in the immortal words of Samuel L. Jackson, pretty much makes me a vegetarian. I'm not gonna be as hardcore about it as she, but i could stand to lose a few pounds, anyway.

Meanwhile, i still need to fix a downspout form the gutters that came loose in the hurricane, and the damn lawnmower is refusing th start again. It's always something, huh?
