Saturday… Despite the Drama of Friday…Saturday was a pretty good day. I continued my taper of the Neurontin.  I’m at about half the dose, I can tell because my foot and calf are somewhat tingly and that’s unpleasant, but it does tell me that there is still a problem, which is important. I took the …
