Sorry I have been MIA for a while.

I was doing okay for a while and then I found out my brother has lymphoma and it has spread through most of his body. he was in the hospital for almost a month. And I couldn't get home to him. Thankfully the chemo so far has helped and he is at home now and doing better. But it sent me into a depression for a few weeks. I went to see my pdoc on saturday though and she has upped my depakine from 500 mg. to 1000 mg. It seems to be helping some so far and I am getting some of my energy back and my mood is better.

I did overdo it today though when I went to the gym. I did a 15 minute workout and then went swimming for a little bit. but after the workout I was so weak I could barely swim. So I guess even though I am feeling better I need to take it easy on myself.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know how I was doing and why I hadn't been here in a while.
