Overcoming Problems With God's Never Ending Love

Never-ending problems occur when you have chronic illnesses.  I seem to have an ongoing issue with my medicines.  Seizure medicines are trial and error with many patients.  Zonegran side-effects have been rough on me, and the medicine hasn't completely stopped my seizures.  It did stop  the seizure from finishing, but not all the seizure.

The Zonegran also made me depressed.  I really didn't think I could deal with this level of depression, so I called the neurologist and left a message for his nurse.  She called back to get the details.  While I was traveling she called back again.  After getting the instructions from my neurologist, I now know what I'll be doing with my seizure medicines.

Since I'm traveling, I had to get my new prescription transferred to a pharmacy where I'm staying, away from home.  When I get back home, I'll need to move the prescription back to my home pharmacy.  But, the neurologist felt that it was important for me to begin the medication change right away.

My instructions are to gradually decrease the Zonegran and gradually begin taking the Topamax.  I really don't want to take the Topamax again.  But, he reassured me that I will not go over the 150 mg level.  This is such a small dose, compared to what I took last time.  And, when I was on it before, there were no seizures.  Although it didn't stop all my migraines and headaches, it did work on the seizures.

So, here goes another medication trial.  Ugh!  I'm just praying that God will give me some good results.  If not good results, I'm asking God for the grace to handle another round of disappointment with a good attitude.  I've not been very thankful lately.  It's been a hard period of life lately, and these seasons of life can be tests that I don't want to fail.

I hope that your day is filled with God's love and peace.  I can do nothing on my own.  I will continue to seek His blessings each day.
