I Graduated!!! #CheckInWithMe
Sorry I’ve been so MIA for the past week but I had my eye surgery and then a week later was able to walk as the Salutatorian at my high school graduation yesterday! I arrived late and left right after I walked due to fatigue but I’m so grateful and so proud of myself for doing it at all. And for, you know, graduating.
In other news, I get to try to come down on the diamox (slowly) and see how I do!
Boy do I love the symptoms of csf buildup, don’t you? 🙄
I actually have some good news for once! #CheckInWithMe
So last Thursday was my first appointment with a new doctor who I see again this Thursday, and the appointment was really emotional.
With almost perfect timing, my college planning counselor calls to let me know I’m graduating as salutatorian of my high school class! It came as a complete shock to me, because I just considered myself lucky that they were letting me graduate at all, due to me missing the majority of the fourth quarter of my senior year.
I feel really proud of myself and the hard work that I did put in, and to top it all off, my best friend is valedictorian! 👩🎓

This was me after my second CT scan!
Hello darkness my old friend, I stood up to fast again (oops)
First Neurophthalmologist appointment next week... any advice?
So I have my first appointment with a neuropthemolegist (still can’t spell sorry) next Thursday and I’m not sure what to expect. I’m quite nervous and would love to hear about other’s experiences to quell some of my anxiety. The one thing I have heard about this particular doctor is that she is very thorough and the appointment will probably take like 3 hours so... any advice is greatly appreciated!
