Getting there

It’s time, I have been holding off from writing as every time I say I feel good I have a bad day :sweat_smile:
I am 100% nearly all the time, I am still sensitive to fluorescent light but not all of them, I go to shop and supermarkets no problem (my office light less so). Thanks to the lockdown I have been working from home… a part from 2 days with minor symptoms I m feeling really well.
I must say that whenever I have low ferritin my brain can’t cope so I will get this checked on a regular basis.
I am currently on effexor 37.5 and trying to get off the nortriptyline; it was going great until I started to get restless legs so I went back to 35 mg, will try again to go down next week. For those of you who don’t know me I had VM since December 2016 and on meds from 2017.
I hope this post can help some of few feeling that there is hope to get back to a normal life.
