I have been generally slacking and behaving irresponsibly these last several days and I don’t know when that will change. Possibly today. Possibly a week from now. Who knows? I just really don’t feel like updating Charley right now, though god knows the updates are piling up again.
So far the Topamax has given me acne and made soda pop taste bad. I’m really, really hoping the latter is a temporary thing, because pop was my main beverage and I know of no other that is so cheap, tasty and easily obtainable. Grape juice, which is very good and healthy, is $5 a gallon. Milk is cheap, but it’s so filling that I can’t really drink enough to keep myself hydrated.
Yesterday I had a really, really bad headache starting around ten o’clock or so. I went home from school at noon, missing two classes, then lay around moaning till six-thirty, then asked Dad to take me to the urgent care clinic. They gave me a shot of Nubain, which was effective. Today I called Dr. Easley’s office and asked for another script for MS Contin. I’ll pick it up on the way home. Hopefully by the time I run out of that again, the Topamax will be kicking in.
I have a math test this afternoon. I made up my mind that if the headache returned I would ask the professor to let me take the test early, so I could just get out of here. But it hasn’t come back, thank goodness.
