Hey friends! How was your weekend? Whether working or not, I hope it was a good one!
I spent today in a fog. Last night I had roughly 10 seizures throughout the night, and somehow I managed to get my Ativan to hopefully stop the seizures. My body was basically as though someone had left a switch on- and not in a good way. Do you ever have seizures and you are finally starting to slowly recover, and then another and another happens? That was basically was what it was like for me. It is a vague image in my mind, but I remember the shaking, the stiffening, and the confusion. By early morning of this Sunday I knew that I had to call off my plans with my friend because who knows? I could seize while going to the mall, in the mall or leaving the mall. I just could not take that chance, as much as I wanted to see my friend. She understood though which I was grateful for.
My boyfriend also came over this evening which was so so awesome. He is still learning about Epilepsy, so I forgot that he didn’t know that I can’t take in too much stimulation after a bunch of seizures, and that they effect my moods. He is doing a great job of learning, and all it takes is time. Do you have a new partner who is still adjusting to what living with Epilepsy is like?
Otherwise my brain feels quiet and can’t take in too much excitement. I am so lucky that the pup JoJo slept close to me all day. What would we do without our dogs (and cats!)
Love you lots!
