Although circular
colors imbue the struggle
troubles fade away.

The second day of IVIg went well.  The night before however, was not as smooth. The bright spot was being able to go to work and still help others.  I suppose the up side to the migraine that knocked me down was that it hit at 5 p.m. – timing is everything they say.

There is a part of me that cannot help but wonder, maybe this is a misdiagnosis as well.  After all there were two previous diagnoses to this one.  The nurse asked if I noticed any relief, “no, I did not.”  She reminded me that sometimes it takes months before people notice.  What I did notice, that I did not share with her – my symptoms were worse than they had been in a while.  I am going to contribute that to the stress of the day.  A definite trigger.  It is difficult to not be consumed mindfully by something that is so limiting on a daily basis, frequent reminders glaring from beneath a façade that tries to maintain positivity.
