Finally Have a Date...

After about 2 1/2 weeks of waiting I finally have a proposal defense date! I will defend my proposal for my dissertation on April 11th. Shortly after that I will be heading to a conference in DC, hopefully as having successfully defended my proposal.

Dammit, Dammit Dammit!!

Well, they finally got my meds straightened out and now I have a cold or a sinus infection and feel like crap today!! How can I get more than 1 day in a row of feeling good? Is that really too much to ask? (But at least I'm not dizzy or numb!)

I Do Believe We Have a Solution!!

I stopped taking my one blood pressure medication and I haven't been dizzy or lightheaded at all. OK well, maybe just once, but I had a it was justified. I am so excited that this finally has stopped and I'm feeling like myself again. I was even able to take Soxy for a walk by myself today. The first time I've felt steady enough to to that since last May!!

Medical Update...

Well, last May I blacked out behind the wheel; I've been getting dizzy and light-headed with no explanation. I have had a ton of tests and bloodwork. I HATE needles!! So they finally came up with the conclusion that I am taking too much medication. That they have me on so many blood pressure medications that they have made it almost non-existent! Hopefully this round of "experiments" will work. I know I'm blonde, but I'm tired of walking around dizzy!
