Well, somehow I got off schedule with my meds for about a week. Also, I have not been able to sleep much lately. I'm hoping that is what is causing all of the seizures. I have been on schedule for about a week now. Had another seizure tuesday morning. My neuro raised my dosage that afternoon. Now, I am taking 300mg's in the morning, and afternoon. I was taking 300mg's at night. Now I am taking 600mg's at night. Haven't had another seizure since then. Crossing my fingers. The only down side is that i'm feeling rather out of it and slightly off balance. But, that's just a side effect of the meds. We're trying to reduce the amount of stress in the house. It's been hard lately. My wife is feeling more and more stress from having to take care of the 3 boys, the house, and me 24/7. We only know one family here. we moved here about a year ago and because of my epilepsy...we haven't been able to socialize. The people we do know had a party about 4 months ago. I had a seizure at the party, and we are just now hearing back from them last week. We haven't heard much from them since then. What we did hear from them was pettiness and fear. They didn't really mention my seizure...but they used the situation and the fact that we need so much help due to my seizures, frequent neuro appts, and fairly frequent trips to the ER, and my not being able to work since June. The problem is....she and my wife have been friends for about 20 years. So, neither my wife or I want for her to just throw their friendship away over stupid stuff. But, some of what was said hurt. She said I was "limiting my wife's potential". So, I guess long story short....We don't have anyone here we can depend on. Which means my wife doesn't get a break and *I* don't get a break either. We both need our alone time and we just can't have it right now. I can't be left alone. Which means my wife can't leave me at home with the kids while she goes out and de-stresses. I can't drive...of course. I've pretty much made up my mind that I'll never drive again. Even once I'm seizure free. Don't want to have a reoccurance while I'm driving suddenly.
WOW!! I only meant to leave a short reply. I guess I just needed to vent a bit. Didn't mean to write a short novel. lol
No one left behind!
