MDJunction to me

tomboykimi"What MD Junction means to me is a place where i can feel like im not alone. As someone with something as rare as hydrocephalus, it feels like im the only one in the world with it. When i came to MD, its like everyone has it. It doesnt feel like im alone. And that people need to hold up a sign to say what i have, because people know. And they understand. I can get questions answered from people who have been through it rather than from doctors or people who only can tell you from a physical standpoint. THat is what MD junction means to me."

mamajo I want to start a diary to keep track of things...I forget too much of the day to day stuff and think this might help out. Besides I know that journaling is a very theraputic too. Anyone know how to change a Diary Name???

Birthday in Cleveland...

Apr 30 2012

it's out last week in Cleveland - yay!  D is doing so good tho and I think this program has done wonders for her.  We still have to get a plan on meds for the bad migraines, but for therest of it, she's working thru it.  She's so much stronger, more determined, getting back into life.  Not going back to school as she has the credits to graduate, so just going to get her graduated and moving on with life.  She wants to stay active, start our little garden and take care of it on her own, which is fine with me.  We're trying to think of all the stuff she can help with around the house.  She wants to go to the gym every day (with me); she is apprehensive about me going back to work, but I think if we get a routine going and get her driver's license that will help a lot.  

Saw family this weekend in Michigan.  Lots of driving, but it was all good.  D had a hard time Saturday, but still did really good.  Good to see her working thru the pain and figuring out how to deal with it without snapping at everyone.  

My b-day is today and she wants me to look for a movie that I want to see.  She's on outpatient this week, so it's drop her off in the a.m. and pick her up late afternoon.  Cleveland's traffic is the pits tho!  Not bad during the day, but rush hour is awful, they have construction on the way and it's terrible trying to get around that.  People are not considerate at all...will be soooo very glad to get home after this week :)
