As I was recently pondering “do I really need to take my seizure medication. Surely I am better now.” As it turns out I am not better and once again another seizure from forgotten medication. Fortunately I made it to church safely with my children and my wife noticed me acting weird just before the seizure. Stemming to my early days she asked me a simple addition question and I think I immediately seized. Because she was next to me she able to “gently” lay me on the floor. Unfortunately like always I bit my tongue, and I think this was the worst time ever and I am still in the midst of recovering a week out. At least I was around good friends that helped me get back to the house. Eriksgirl says I respond well to her stern tone at this point when I do not no who she is nor who I am and I guess they were able to boss me to the car. The seizure took a huge mental toll on me and I forgot common items (passwords) that I had to work to dig them back up. Regardless, I simply returned back to my medicine and “get” the privilege of taking 6 months off from driving with Eriksgirl as my valet.

I realized writing about this seizure that I never wrote about the last seizure. The previous one was the worst for everybody else, for me they are all the same I do not remember anything but I bite my tongue and I suffer a loss of time. This time though, once again caused by missed medication, I seized while I was driving with the entire family in the van. Fortunately I curled up and Eriksgirl gently drove the van off the road. From this point on I do not drive if Eriksgirl is in the car. This was also the seizure that got dosage upped so I could withstand more missed doses before seizing because I only missed 2 before seizing this time.

With the last seizure it is fully my fault but I had grown complaisant and moved away from the pill box. I am now back on the pill box where Eriksgirl can second verify, if she likes, that I have taken them. On the plus side at the end of the 6m Eriksgirl should be a better driver from all the driving suggestions I’ll offer along the way. 😉

  One Response to “Another Seizure”

  1. I recently published my article on newly researched natural medicinal plants and their potential for reversing the progression of ALS, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis and other neurodegenerative diseases. It can be found at:

    It is the culmination of several years work, having studied ethnobotanical medicine and the field of neurodisease, making connections between the two in the search for something viable in terms of alternative treatment options. Hopefully, you will find reading it worthwhile. It is currently being discussed on several online forums related to the subject matter.
