I’ve been AWOL for a couple of months, because I’ve had a lot going on.  Hopefully I’ll be able to update here more now.

The good news is that the doctor’s FINALLY found a painkiller regimen which actually means I can *walk* again, and *do things*.  I’ve even got some paid employment as a groom; I don’t know if my health’s going to hold up for it, because it’s only been a week and I’m already struggling, but I’m really hoping it will.  There are a lot of negative side effects to the regimen, both healthwise and in terms of impact on my other medication, but I’m just so relieved to have some mobility back after so long.
