And just like that, another month of the year is gone! This month went extra quick since it’s such a short one, AND Victoria – the state I live in – was put in another lockdown briefly due to some ongoing COVID outbreaks.
The lockdown was only for five days, but my work closed down for a little bit longer, and then I didn’t have work for a few more days after that because of the weekend, so I was stuck at home for what felt like forever and yet also made the month go by really fast – now here we are.
It’s really weird to think that earlier this month there were rules forbidding me to even leave my house, now we can have up to 30 people in our house if we want to (not that our tiny unit could fit that many, it can barely fit us! 😂). It sure has been a strange month. We’re already two months into 2021; I’m only seven months away from turning 25, which is just insane to me.
This month wasn’t as great as I had hoped it would be, to be honest, but it wasn’t awful either. We had some things change – that I’ll go onto explain soon – in our day to day life that we are still adjusting to, that got changed again, and will be changed yet AGAIN in the future, but that’s just life. I’ll stop rambling now and get onto this month’s tidbits!
TIDBITS FROM THE MONTH:
♡ Daniel started this new, full-time job on the first of this month, which was very exciting. It was quite a change adapting to a 6am-10pm sleeping schedule (for the both of us) instead of our usual 12am bedtime, then awake whenever we need to. Due to him starting so early, I get dropped off at my work sometimes a couple of hours early, so I’ve been getting a lot of reading done. That is, until he switched to working at home until further notice due to COVID and other reasons, so now we still get up early, but I don’t need to leave for work so early, so it’s even stranger being awake and at home without having anything to do 😅 but Daniel is enjoying his job, which is good. He does miss actually going into work, but he won’t be working from home forever, so that’s good.
♡ This month’s seizure tally is really good! I only had 7. I was actually just about to write how over the moon I was because I thought that was the lowest it has been in years, but it turns out I had seven back in November.. 😕 But, it’s still five less than last month, so that’s something.
♡ On the topic of seizures, my neurologist and some other people at one of the hospitals I go to have asked me if I want to sign up for a trial as it’s been almost three years now of trying medications and having no luck, and I have been on the waiting list to get the ball rolling for brain surgery and still haven’t even BEGUN to see if that is a possibility, so a trial is another option. I always said I’d be up for it, but now that I’ve been asked and they’ve told me more about it, sent me the information and a consent form, I’m not so sure about it.
