Scary weekend ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜”

Monday 5th March

Well what can I say about this weekend… it all began Friday afternoon when the absence seizures started ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Nothing really out the normal for me to be having them because I have them a few days each week.. often multiple times during the day, just like this Friday! The thing about Friday that was a bit different an that doesnโ€™t happen every week because of the amount of medication I take is, I donโ€™t have a Gran Mal seizure.. or blackout.

Me an Fay had been home about ย ten minutes because Iโ€™d spent the day at my mums …Neil was out for tea so we ate there… I was knackered after having the fits so decided to go a bit earlier an Fay came too with me being unwell.

Weโ€™d literally been dropped off gone upstairs an I was in the bathroom an hit the floor, no warning nothing… thank god for Fay she caught me going down so I didnโ€™t fall flat on my face but dropped to my knees first so although Iโ€™ve got bruises an Iโ€™m aching an sore itโ€™s nothing to what could of happened!!

I constantly have the absence seizures an they get me down but itโ€™s when these ones raise their ugly heads that I realise how lucky I actually am that Iโ€™m not having these on a daily/weekly basis which could very well be the case. It can be a pain taking upto 20 tablets a day but itโ€™s definitely worth it if it means keeping these at bay๐Ÿ˜ณ. It was this time last yr I had my last ones of these ..I had three coz my meds were messed up!!

Sometimes we moan about daft things donโ€™t we like having to take tablets but itโ€™s not until the really horrible things come up an bite you the bum that you think… maybe I havenโ€™t got it so bad. My epilepsy is by no means controlled but thankfully in the main itโ€™s the absence seizures I have.. hopefully itโ€™ll stay that way.

Thanks for reading everyone. Iโ€™ve popped a pic up of my bruises๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Shirley โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’œ
