This morning I had an appointment with my neurologist over the phone. I was anxiously waiting for this appointment because today he would give me the results of the EEG I had in December.

He didn’t mention anything at first, which I was sure was a good sign, but I still wanted to know so I went ahead and asked. I’m very happy to say that the results were good. He told me that I haven’t had any seizures, which is great, but there are still some discharges on the left side of my brain. Because of that he can not take away or make any changes to me medication but if I keep taking my medication I should not have any more seizures.

That is exactly what I wanted to hear. I mean, it would have been perfect if he told me there are no discharges, I didn’t have epilepsy anymore and I could stop taking the medication, but I knew that wasn’t going to happen. I had said I was going to be happy if he told me with exactly what he told me today, that it had not gotten worse.

He also told me that my last seizure was five years ago. I wasn’t sure how long it had been but I thought it was less. That made me so happy, I think I should celebrate tomorrow.

Also, this morning I stayed home to be able to talk to him without any distractions so I was able to exercise in the morning, before work. I spent 30 minutes on the bicycle and did today’s video. After worker stayed and ran in the parking lot. It felt really good to not having to do anything else after I got home.
