A lovely long conversation with BWGA, on matters literary and much else and she interuppts to express her delight that I'm capable of talking about this stuff.

Because I couldn't two years ago.

I really couldn't.

My brain's firing on all cylinders at the moment. It does that much more often these days. I love it, it's awesome.

Now I can take over the world.

You have your brain back? I am so envious.

Enjoy!

I intend to be benevolent. Which is of course, the worst kind.

Gabapentin.

Antibiotics for recurring sinusitis.

A bit more detail:

gabapentin is an anti-epileptic. When I first read about it years ago, it was still a patented drug and so, on private prescription, was about $10 per capsule. It is now off-patent, so it's much cheaper. It's PBS use, for which it is subsidised, is epilepsy.

I get it off-label because I have Restless Legs Syndrome, for which it also works very well. I had forgotten about the earlier reading I had done, but when I started did notice a big improvement in CFS symptoms. Many people don't, though.

Unfortunately, I have also had sinus infection after sinus infection since moving north of Melbourne and away from the coast. They are bacterial infections. It seems I'm hopelessly allergic to something around here and I only seem to manage brief spells in between bouts of worsening symptoms and the obvious signs of infection. Once I'm back on antibiotics for a couple of days, I feel substantially better. I'm seeing an allergy specialist this week and I am hoping he has some terrific other option for me.

I can't even begin to describe the happiness I felt reading this post.
Seriously!
