Had two seizures in one day (three or so for the week total). Got feeling pretty weak after the two-seizure-day bout, Dr. started me on Trileptal/Tegretol combination. Been in a groggy haze, lethargic (so, yes, it's probably WORKING, moreso than the Tegretol alone). MY concern is: While all of my friends and co-workers are recommending that I apply for disability, WHO will KEEP me while the Social Security Administration goes through its usual 5+ years of denial and court?
Maybe if I could find someone to pluck my eyes out
, then the disability might appear a little more obvious! I mean, think about it: The neuro sits on one lone EEG report, 1/2 hour in duration, that didn't have a seizure occur at the same time! Disability?? Yea, right!
Not without a few years of legal battles!
Wish me luck with the new meds! Definately making me more irritable and cranky, when I AM awake!
