    My party is up LOL!

    Last night I had a complex partial, I dreamed I was being strangled and I couldn't breathe. I was yelling for my husband in the dream, then I woke up.

    The seizures mess up the signals for my breathing and I couldn't breath, even laying on my back. I was so scared poopless when I woke up that I didn't get up for 20 minutes to use the bathroom.

    Nooooo :Bawling:

    Oh well, back to my supplements and all.

    What is the longest you've not had a seizure, for those epileptics here?

    I've been seizure free for 13 years. I ocassionally get what feels like the beginning of an aura, but it goes away and I'm fine. I know it can come back any time, so I'm loving it while I can. :)

    I'm hoping it will go away again lol!

    I had the memory fog for a couple of days, the mood swings and general grump after the seizure. I keep having nightmares too and it's getting awfully tiring. Hubby will shake me awake if I am flailing about too much though, it's nice to have him around :)

    DW told me that even with the meds he is on DS has had 6 seizures they were not as bad as before and he has a lot less but the other day she was cooking pancakes and he fell from the dining room chair to the floor. I think he may need brain surgery or something the nurologist told her that if he still had them in 6 months they may reccomend that. It seems his brain on the left side is really small acording to him.

    Thanks that was interesting, I will have to investigate that further. In my sons case he eats mackeral atleast once or twice a week and they have found his brain to be way to small on the left side so that is part of the problem I guess. When i get back I will talk to the doctors in person and get a better idea of what is going on.
