I'm not planning on changing anything anytime soon. I don't know why, but regular therapy keeps me relatively stable unless my therapist is not stable himself. I get bored sometimes, but I know from experience that I'm less stable without the therapy. I've never quite understood it, but I'm not going to mess with it unless I have a fair amount of free time to risk falling apart.

But when my therapist is not stable himself, I'm far more unstable than if I had no therapy at all.

It's hard to think of it as being anything but magic. But then, I think of the fax machine as being magic too. I know there are many people who understand it, but to me it's magic.

I really wish for those of you with less happy therapy arrangements, that you could create a relationship like we have. Last session I lightly mentioned (since he had just come back from training) that I always figured his sexual addiction clients would be more interesting for him as a therapist. He smiled at me with obvious amusement and told me I always underestimated our relationship. But I don't. Not anymore anyway.

I suspect my migraines may be weather related right now. The air has been heavy and pregnant with thunderstorms. However, it has to be more than that since sometimes thunderstorms don't bother me at all, and other times I get migraines every day for weeks. Possibly some are rebound since I've been hitting the migraine meds a lot. And maybe the inner ear stuff that was giving me constant migraines earlier in the summer is still a bit of a contributor. The tinnitis is lingering for sure.

For me, the migraines don't come during stress so much as after stress. But I don't see any correlation right now to that. I have noticed a very strong correlation to driving and the migraines. I've been good about remembering to use my sunglasses, but it's still a problem.

If my neurologist was still in town, I'd see her and she'd probably tinker with my migraine prophylaxis, currently 50 mg Lamictal. Maybe I'll look around to see if who else is out there. Or maybe I'll drive six hours each way to see her. She's worth it.

I was looking up vascular rhinitis, and found out any number of interesting things - including a link to migraines. I wrote about it on the meds board.
