I needed that job like a hole in my head(ache)

I've survived a week at my new job and two things standout:

1) I don't want to quit yet (I wanted to quit the first week at my old job)
2) My head hasn't bothered me in days

Now that's probably not 100% accurate. I do have episodes now and again. I went for a run on Sunday and I was fine for the first 15 minutes but when I had to turn around and run back and I could kind of feel it in my head. I thought about walking back but decided to run anyway. And then I sat in the car and drank my recovery drink until my legs started working again and drove home and completely forgot about it.

Two weeks ago, if I went for a run, it would take me a day or two to recover enough that I was ready to exercise again. But this time it was just a little twitch.

I supposed it could be a coincidence. Or maybe I have just turned the corner finally after 2.5 years. Or the 75 mg of Topamax is enough now when 50 mg wasn't.

But I can't help but think that having a job that doesn't give me death in my soul is the key.
