Re: Hope everyone is OK
Thank you for the update. I am going to see my neurologist tomorrow morning, I hope that he will allow me to up the albuterol dose, I am still only on 6mg and actually ran out of pills the other day and the pharmacist wouldn't refill because the Dr had written the RX wrong. I will talk to him about it tomorrow as I am still feeling significant increases in my strength. I have been able to walk down stairs with minimal help, and I have started going shopping on my own again only using a cane (My husband is not sure he likes it as I seem to have created a monster, but I do enjoy the little bit of added independence). If my neuro will not let me increase my dose I may just discontinue the experiment, and ask my psychiatrist for an increase in my adderall as that has shown to increase my strength just as much as the albuterol has. My PT has noticed significant changes in my strength and is very impressed!
My major complaints are as usual my depression issues, I was doing really well for a while, I felt strong both physically and mentally, but my mood has taken a huge hit again, and I am back to where I was about a year ago. It is really strange though as I know I will get through it, and my mood will get better, but it doesn't make it any easier. It really is an odd feeling to feel so down, be able to see light at the end of the tunnel, and yet feel as if it doesn't matter. My biggest fear right now is the day I will no longer be able to drive myself places, I drive a Jeep Liberty and love it. Last week I had two cars cut me off, and I had no trouble engaging the brakes etc My husband has promised to let me know when he no longer feels confident driving with me. I still teach two afternoons a week, I tutor a 12th grader in geometry at home at night, and I work out in the pool every morning.
Anyway, if the MI winter is to bad, come on down to FL, we have a spare room ;-)
