I had a good day at work today. Saw some really cool stuff.
The new hospitals I work at are really new (still under construction) and really big, so I had to do a lot of exploring, getting lost, walking…
What I’ve really noticed is the difference going to the gym regularly makes. I’m definitely starting to […]

Left my heart…

Sunday, August 29th, 2004

….in San Francisco. Wow, that feels like such a long time ago. It’s been 4 months since the trip. Feels like a different lifetime.
My head is feeling mostly better now. One day of weekend today, and it’s off again to work tomorrow and another weekend call coming up. Went to the Presbyterian church today. I […]

Oh look, I just rated this morning’s migraine as “hurt so bad, I couldn’t go to work”. Could barely get out of bed this morning. Was in hospital working last night until 3am. Got called again this morning 8:30am. My head kills.
Guess what, I gotta go back to work. My head sucks.

Sick of being stupid

Tuesday, August 24th, 2004

I stopped taking topiramate yesterday night. I hate feeling so stupid anymore, and knowing I’m not supposed to be like this. I hate feeling down. I can’t stand all the headaches, and then now being stupid. I want my brain back.

Day off

Monday, August 23rd, 2004

I had today off because I worked the last statutory holiday, so I got to take a random “stat day”. It was nice to be off on a work day, because I could get a bunch of errands run. It was nice being on long weekend. Really nice. And it was a good one, too.
Don’t […]

So last night was FlowerGirl’s wedding reception. Since I met her at a program we went to together many years ago and we haven’t kept in touch with most of the other people in that program, I ended up seated with her law school friends. Which turned out to be fine, since they seem to […]

Personal Long Weekend

Saturday, August 21st, 2004

Happily, last night on call was quiet, so I got a good night’s sleep. I did have to stay around late to finish off some work, but then I got to stay home, which is always nice. Earlier start to my personal long weekend. Why? Because I was working the last statutory holiday, so I […]

Dinner lecture

Thursday, August 19th, 2004

Just got home from a dinner lecture on Parkinson’s disease. The talk was pretty good and useful for me, and the dinner was absolutely superb. It was at a fancy restaurant uptown, and OMG it was so good. The company (fellow residents) was a hoot, too. It was educational, fun, and fulfilling. Which is just […]

Different pain

Wednesday, August 18th, 2004

I’m happy to report that I’m still migraine-free. Unfortunately, I’ve had this nasty belly-pain this past week. Dunno why. It REALLY hurts.
