Three years seizure free!!! This third year is just a little bit sweeter than last year was just because there were a few moment which I thought would ruin it. Throughout both hurricanes and afterwards I was so terrified and nervous of having another seizure because I was worried about so many things. I was … Continue reading Three years!!!!!!!!!!
This week, being the week before Easter, I thought I would be able to rest and relax. I was hoping to go to the beach, the movies and maybe even have a lazy day just staying home all day. The week didn't turn out this way. Begging with having to go get blood drawn on … Continue reading Easter break
I just realized today that I have an appointment with my neurologist in two weeks. My first thought was "this is great, I'm still seizure free", but then I remembered that last time I saw my neurologist he asked me why I wasn't driving yet and seemed disappointed in me. That was back in August … Continue reading Reminders
My electroencephalogram was removed today. This process, just like gluing it to my head yesterday, didn't hurt one bit but it was a lot faster. I'm not sure what the technician put on my hair to make it all come out, but my head was really sticky, like I had way too much hair gel. … Continue reading After the EEG
Like I said yesterday, today I was getting an EEG. I had 24 electrodes glued and taped to my head. These are all connected to a recorder that I'm have to carry around like a purse, except it's not really that cute. Each of the cables from the electrodes is a different color and that's … Continue reading Electroencephalogram
Tomorrow I will have electrodes placed on my scalp to read electrical signals in my brain. It sounds weird and it is, but it's for a good cause. It's an EEG to find out if those weird episodes I had when I couldn't find the right word are seizures. I had this done before in … Continue reading Another EEG
I was reading a little bit about different kinds of seizures, trying to see if those episodes I have had could have been a seizure. It's just for my curiosity because I will know after I get the results from my EEG on the 24th. I thought it might have been an Absence Seizure, also … Continue reading Trying to understand those episodes
I know I have not been as loyal to my blog as I usually am, I don't want to make any excuses because I do miss writing and updating my blog, there just isn't enough time in a day. But there is something that's been on my mind, it's happened twice and I'm really not … Continue reading Some weird episodes
My first good news of today, one of my doctors told me he saw the lab results I sent him and he said they're great. I don't want to get ahead of myself because he really didn't say much more, but from his reaction I don't think there was anything wrong. Yay! Second, after I … Continue reading Good News Monday!
As I said this morning, my appointment with my neurologist was this afternoon. After sitting in the crowded waiting room, and waiting, quickly writing and posting another blog post, and waiting a little bit more, they called my name to go see him. When my doctor came in, after saying all the hellos, I quickly … Continue reading And my neurologist said…
Today I have an appointment with my neurologist, and I've been thinking all day how happy he's gonna be when I tell him that next week I'll be 12 months seizure free. Of course, by all day I mean since I woke up less than an hour ago. I know that after he asks how … Continue reading Big news for my neurologist
I have been conscious during my last two seizures and since then I've wanted to explain what I feel during the seizures, I just didn't know how to explain this or if my descriptions would make sense to anybody. But today I found an article, which describes what happens and what people may feel during … Continue reading If I can’t speak, I’m tired, everything hurts and I don’t understand why; it means I had a seizure
