Thanks Ladies for your support. Jen, it's good to see you too! Yes, we are back home and caring for our son. We are also 15 weeks pg with our second. Ihave trouble makingit to chat dueto the time change and I forget. Oneof these days I'll make it.
My husband has said he's seen many people with VNS and it rarelyworks so we kind of ruled that out. We'll see.
One thing that upsets me is the new E drug that just came out pobably won't be available here for a long time and dh thinks it would be great for me. We can order it overseasbut it's way too expensive so that's not going to work unless we win lottery. LOL
Oh well, I'll try to post more often these days. I do read at least once a day if not more, but either find theanswer to my question from another post or just don't get time to do it.
Anyway thanks again ladies.
It's so good to know you're not alone...that's how I felt when I read your story. I went through a very similar lifestyle. For all of my life, from what I remember, I have had a few moments of a very intense deja vu, where I know what is going to happen. I know what people are going to say...it's a pretty intense altering of concious. I always told my mom "it's doing it again." We never really seeked out medical attention for it. After I graduated college in 1999, and went into the world alone, I got insurance and decided it was time to look into this a bit more. None of the doctor's I went to could give me any answers, except that it may be some sort of a seizure. All of my exams and tests came back as normal. The feelings continued. In Oct of 2003 I had my first GrandMal seizure, the first of 8 in a year and a half period. Of course, at this time I had no insurance, so I didn't pursue the doctor's on a very intense basis. A few appointments and I was finished...with no answers. I am now accepted into a program in my city that helps those with financial difficulties and no insurance get the medical attention they need. I was just given my first appointment with a neurologist on the 21st of February!!! Maybe now I can get some answers.
Stay positive, stay happy...I know it's a hard thing to do, but you can. Always remember, someone else is there with you. I too am blessed with finding my soul mate who is as anxious as I am to find the source of the problem and treat it as naturally as possible.
