Hi Michelle,
You didn't mention if your seizures are under control. If they aren't, you may want to get to know (and hopefully trust) a neighbor. If you ever need him/her to help you during a seizure, or to let emergency workers inside, it would be good to be acquainted with someone you can trust. Good luck...it sounds like a very exciting time in your life. Kathy

Hi Michelle:
I hope the move goes well for you.
I agree with Krazycio since your seizures
are not under control, I would make sure you have
somebody close to you , in case you need help.
Take care of yourself
Peace

Hi,
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you....I've been real busy. I think, since your seizures aren't under control, you really should consider having someone you can check in with. If your sister isn't always available, or if you don't have a neighbor to call if you need help, you may want to invest in one of those services that give you a buzzer to press if you are having problems, or feel a seizure coming on. Help can be dispatched right away, and you will probably feel much safer. Good luck, Kathy
