As of yesterday, April 8, 2022, I am officially seven years seizure free! I didn’t have time to write a celebratory blog post like I do every year but that doesn’t mean I was not happy of telling everyone I could about it.
I almost thought I didn’t make it earlier this week when because I fainted earlier this week and for a moment I was afraid it had been a seizure. It wasn’t, I just hadn’t eaten anything. I don’t know if it’s just me, but “I had a seizure” is always my first thought after anything out of the ordinary happens to me. Then I think back and remember I wasn’t feeling very well, hadn’t eaten anything yet, had no aura and didn’t feel like I do after a seizure.
I feel very proud to have been able to keep following all my neurologist’s instructions and always track of my medications, when to take them and when I need a refill.
I hope I can keep celebrating my seizure free anniversary for many years!
