Following 11 years of being labeled (“oft-contested”), 2 years of titration & withdrawal, & 4 of concerted self-care & self-rehab…my brain is firing on all twelve cylinders with what feels like a turbo-boost as if making up for lost time. I am relieved, delighted, & amazed. Were it not for the ‘pesky’ 19 seizures that littered the path to this moment…it would have been a perfect recovery. Apparently my price for a ticket out. Paid in full.
