For anyone who doesn’t know or can’t see the resemblance, that’s Ron Swanson from the show Parks and Rec. (he had a real thing for bacon, for anyone who doesn’t know the show) So I let myself get a little fun this morning and do a little doodle at breakfast. I’m not saying I’m any amazing artist but I was happy I actually tried. Moat times I would have though “you will just fuck it up because you can’t draw” and let it go because it was easier. I’ve been doing really well on the new medication though. I didn’t feel a wall of fear like I always do. I just did what I wanted. When I messed up I wasn’t harsh, I just kept going. I’m being so much gentler on myself. So much kinder. It’s nice. The only side-effect so far from the topiramate is numbness in the limbs. My toes have been having some serious issues. Keeps feeling like they are asleep. Socks help. Sort of distributes the pins and needles feeling but it’s such an odd sensation to have numbness you can’t get rid of. Tell you what, I’ll take it if I can stay this happy and balanced. It’s an amazing feeling. I don’t ever what it to go away!
