I just returned from a trip to Rome! (Hence the lack of posts.) Yay! It was my first time out of the country, except for a day trip I took to Tijuana when I was seven. But that doesn’t count.
And like any responsible person with a significant medical condition who will be traveling out of the country, I notified my doctors in advance.
Since Rome is nine hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time I was especially concerned about my anti-epileptic medication dosing schedule. Normally I take my meds when I wake up and when I go to sleep.
Super Badass Neurologist told me to get a countdown timer and take my pills every 12 hours, regardless of local time. In my case, I ended up taking pills at 4 p.m. and 4 a.m. Arg.
But you know what they say, “When in Rome…”
