    >Meds and Such Like

    >I think it’s safe to say that at the very least I need to go and chat to my GP about my depression.  I’m much better than I was when my antidepressant was changed to Sertraline but I’m still struggling a lot at times.  That said I don’t necessarily think I need it tweaking again but I’m not sure and I need to keep an eye on these things. And when I went to the physio she was talking about the possibility of changing my muscle relaxants.  Either an increase of my baclofen or taking something else (which said could be instead of or in addition to the baclofen).  I’m…

    >Ask Me Anything

    >Haven’t done one of these in a while so I figured it might be fun to do one now. Plus I just thought of a question I’d love to ask another blogger but for the fact it’s off topic to their blog and irrelevant.  That got me thinking that maybe people had things they wanted to ask me but never had… Ask me whatever you want and I’ll answer in an upcoming blog entry (so long as I’m comfortable doing so, although I don’t expect that to be a problem). And seeing as one of my last entries was about going to see the neuro physio I’ll save myself from…

    >…getting a date for a hospital appointment through is a very good thing! Yes, after a three month wait I am going to Outpatients to see the Neuro Physio next week.  As much as my spasticity levels have dropped since switching from Fluoxetine to Sertraline I still need them sorting out as they aren’t good, still.  I’m quite looking forward to seeing the physio and hearing what they have to say.  I just hope it isn’t disappointing!

    >Updates

    >Recent happenings and not so recent things I’ve forgotten to mention but occur to me now: I’ve made some baby steps on the way to starting to lose weight again so I’m hoping the scales will start moving downwards again very soon!  Specifically I’ve given up coke and chocolate again. My leg is still nasty but is improving very slowly.  I’m really glad they gave me more antibiotics after all because clearly they are doing something.  Being on this level of antibiotics and having been on antibiotics for so long is making me feel a bit rubbish though!  I’ve been resting a lot these last two days and trying to…

    >Progress

    >Down 4lb this week. Progress at last. Looks like something is finally working again. Just need to get the exercise back in now. That’s a job for tomorrow me thinks. I have been doing my physio/stretches more however and the difference it’s made in my ankles in just a few days is astounding. Am pretty wiped out now and still feeling a bit off from whatever it was that I had at the weekend. I don’t think it can have been Norovirus, that’s supposed to be incredibly nasty and what I had wasn’t nice but wasn’t up there in the incredibly nasty category. I just felt sick and felt sick…
