The drug is working.
Friday and Saturday I had two stressful events of the type I’ve been avoiding for years due to the probable necessity of being forced to cancel: making popcorn during play intermission as a fundraiser for our theatre group, and participating in the Holiday Parade with the library. I was able to do both and both went well. I am sleeping and not depressed. I have missed two work shifts but there were other considerations besides migraine (mainly Zo being sick).
Three weeks in, I’m happy.
