feste_sylvain had been concerned about my change from Lyrica to Gabitril; he remembers what I've said about the horrible changes I usually go through when I change anti-seizure meds - double vision, trouble walking... I lost the ability to read for a while on one med! And I've been on Lyrica the whole time he's known me. His fear, he said, was that "you wouldn't be you anymore."
But he is delighted. "You're still you," he says, "but more so!" He also says he can tell that my brain is working faster. :)
And - I'm loving watching him watch me, because he gets this wonderful "you're so much more you!" grin on his face.
