I read the news today, oh boy
After I posted my journal the night before last, I had yet another mild seizure, making a total of five for the day. That’s five too many. In the morning Jennifer gave me another dose of the new Chinese anti-seizure medication and I had a seizure before I even got out of bed. As we have no knowledge about the Chinese stuff as far as how long it takes to take effect we were forced to once again raise my Keppra dose to 2.5. This sucks, because it is likely to be a mere matter of time before it affects my feelings—and that’s on the assumption that it isn’t regardless of dosage these days. I had a fair few seizures throughout the day and one I had before dinner, while being no stronger than others, didn’t seem to want to go away entirely and I was exhausted by it and went to bed. After awhile I was hungry enough that I had to get back up again to eat dinner and was feeling somewhat better, but it’s a worry. Today I’ve only had two very mild seizures, but I’ve been in bed most of the day and haven’t left the house—let along gone to the beach for a swim—for two days. I’ve been very fragile emotionally and made the mistake of reading news today, which made me cry. I wouldn’t be too surprised if most of Australia could use a cry today.
