 may i ramble a bit?!
 i'm having a bad day. it's been afew weeks since i've been woken up by a seizure and a day of crapola to follow! so- well, just feelin like hell at the moment!
the irony...i'd gone to my GP to get a refferal to a new neuro since mine preffers to be a housewife than respond to her patients needs. well- i got the reffereal couple days ago- and i get a call day before last saying my semi anual appointment is due w my reg neuro! HA little late, but whatever!
i took the apointment, spoke to her bout the change, reason i was in hospital in june and why on earth i haven't heard anything since! anyhoo- i was doing alright for afew weeks there, started to breathe easy a an idiot i thought i'd get away with a span of goodness for a while! no such luck.
anyhoo- i'm back on epival ( i was unmedicated for about a year aside from the atypical NEED for ativan here and there) i start tonight to work my way back up on it. she figures it'll get a better picture depending on my results or lack there of for the new neuro come appointment time w him.
she's also thinking she may have an answer....parasomnia induced epilepsy (i'm currently undiagnosed...or a generalised rhyme or reason)
so i look forward *sarcasm noted* to having blood tests to make sure my liver doesn't start to fail (epival and me...we're not friends) and a stint at a sleep clinic, a phone marathon to get all my papers in order sent to new doc, and an adjustment period to the meds while climbing the dosage ladder.....this as i prepare to go back to school for the first time in 10 years! lol oooh good times!
let the violins play! roflmfao!!!
okay- pity party over! i'm half stoked to possibly have an answer...(though something in my gut tells me it's not parasomnia) half peeved that it's such a pain to get anything done to help myself and definetly completely annoyed at the timing of the re-bad-ness of brain fart action!

gracias! meh- bad day over and done with. i've registered for my next 2 semesters at of course, advisor puts me right into math and chem straight away eyes   lol murphy's law! (side note if it's not apparent...i loathe and detest math!)
anyhoo- i'm a wee bit worried come start o school that i might have some issues with getting there and back a la public transport. but we'll just see! if i have to run up and down the train 4 times daily to keep anxiety in place, than so be it! i'll get to class come hell or high water!
so- yup. lil badness today, but i was with a friends mum and brother so it helped to calm me knowing they were there. the real test will come when i'm on my own. well...i managed to take the pup for a walk for about an hour w minor nonsense. i'll be okay. lol i even carried the wee thing (35lbs pit bull!) for about half a click...she got stung by a bee on her paw =( sooo yeah...i'm contented to say i can definetly talk myself into handling whatever comes at me. lol i just have to buy what i'm selling most of the time!
plus- a rant here knowing you guys know exactly what i'm going through....that alone is comforting!
