It's been 2 weeks since I finished my drug trial, and I have felt a noticeable improvement in my general wellbeing since then.
Don't get me wrong ; ALS is still taking its toll on me.
While on the drug trial I found it impossible to function without lengthy naps in the morning and afternoon. I simply felt like I needed to crash.
In retrospect, that also left me less alert.
In the past 2 weeks, my energy levels seem to have rebounded very well. I do feel the need to have a nap, but it's much more of a short maintenance nap than a pair of epic recovery naps.
It would be easy to assume that the drug I was testing is responsible for the contrast, but I thought I was on a placebo! Still, the trial did modify my regular medication
I couldn't tell you what is truly behind the uptick in my condition, or how long the change might last. But I'm not complaining!
