Web cam, while under the influence of Tylenol PM and Benadryl. Do I look as exhausted as I felt?


{July 12, 2007}   Migraines

I’m gonna be switching pills at the end of this pack. I’m going fromOTC-lo to Ortho-Cyclen. From a triphasic to a monophasic. The reason issimple: migraines during the first few days on the “sugar” pills andthe first week on the active pills. With monophasic, I’m guaranteed tobe able to skip my periods (I’ve done it repeatedly with Alesse).Hopefully this’ll help. The nurse at the health department was a bitnervous on giving me pills period (any type of hormonal treatment),because of the migraines, but she gave me a month supply. Not lookingforward to going back in a month, but it’ll be worth it. She wasworried because migraines with the pills can be a possible pre-cursorto strokes. Since I’ve had all that testing (part and parcel to havingbeen on the meds I was on when I was younger and the suicide attempt), the migraines are a big part of the stress that my brain and body can’t handle (stress migraines SUCK).

Speaking of that time of the month, I cannot wait until we get theofficial paperwork filled out for common law. The insurance Josh isgetting is amazing. It covers all that we need it to cover: my TMJsurgery to fix my jaw and the braces that’ll be neededafterwards (wisdom teeth removal, and possible removal of a fewmolars), and it doesn’t count “pre-existing conditions”. There’s aco-pay with it, but DAMN, for not counting “pre-existing”, I’m all forit, XD .
