In the past month I made some big med changes. Long story short, I feel like myself again! I can read and remember books!!! I've finished The Scarlet Letter, now onto Brave New World, and have a whole stack of books waiting. The library is my friend again :) My vocabulary has mostly returned as well, which is awesome.
I have so much more energy, though so far that's tempered by side effects as my body recalibrates itself. I've started taking a self-paced college Algebra class online, and am hoping to brush up on my very rusty German. EdX has some amazing courses, too, which I hope to take advantage of at some point.
The social prospects are the most exciting. And I may even begin sewing again. I definitely want to design, knit and publish at least one of the lace knitting patterns in my design notebook!
