I'm so sorry Carla. Not a very merry Christmas for you then...
It's a drag to have to be so vigilant, isn't it? I forgot to take my meds a little over a week ago and didn't realize until I went to refill my pill box that night. By that time, I felt horrible but I didn't have a seizure. It made me realize how vulnerable I am though.
I keep a few extra pills in a pill-box in my purse just in case I realize I've forgotten a dose and am out of the house. I hadn't thought about it, but I guess that would also help me in a situation like yours.
Here's hoping this next holiday is a happier one!
