Well, I tried cutting back my Primidone by a half pill, and I couldn’t even get through one whole day without it. By evening my whole face was twitching all over the place, and it was getting really painful. My poor facial muscles were just worn plum out. So I took a whole pill extra an hour before bed and put the hot pad on my face, hoping it would calm down in time for me to get some sleep. That worked fairly well, but my face still ached for the next couple of days. So I guess I won’t be trying to cut the Primidone again. Such a tiny pill, but it packs a wallop, for sure.
Now I am gradually adding back my supplements to my pill box. I’m in no hurry, because I’m afraid something I was taking was responsible for this last bought of ulcerated stomach it took me so long to get over. So far so good with that experiment. I’m also going to try cutting back my Triavil by one less pill a day. That was the other medicine besides the Primidone that my Neurologist said could be responsible for my poor short term memory. It’s worth a try, anyway. I would like to feel like my brain was sharp again. It’s felt dull now so long that I have forgotten what it was like to really be on top of things.
I am pleased with how much I’ve been able to learn about the new WordPress site for our Lost Toys Search Service. We hired a programmer to do the bulk of the work, but I was able to do a good bit of the cosmetic work myself, while he worked on all the behind the scenes code that makes the site work. I could never have done this by myself, as it requires knowing another programming language. But I was able to study the code and get the gist of how it works, anyway. All and all I’m proud of how much I was able to learn. It meant putting in lots of hours, but I have the time and enjoy the challenge. Now he’s working on redoing our Plush Catalog, so that will be another learning curve to master.
And it’s time I started working on our income taxes, too. I do that on the computer, so at least I don’t have to do the math. So my brain is going to be getting quite a workout for the next few months. I need every alert brain cell I can muster!
