Unhappy MAJOR Setback!

Hi Fellow Seizure-Sufferers,
I just returned from a four-day hospital stay for a prolonged seizure. The day after my birthday (7/8) I was having lunch out with a friend. I began having an aura, and told her we needed to leave the restaurant. I don't know anything else, until I woke up in the hospital surrounded by my hubby and kids. Now getting my license back is off for another six months, and I have to go through a bunch more medical tests. I'm hurting friends, and need your support. Hugs to all, Kathy

Hi Hon,

Sorry to hear this has happened I have never had my license never got my seizures under control. Just know that this is for your own good and health that you cannot get your license for what I call a short time considering I have never had one LOL. I do know what setbacks can to to self esteem please don't allow it to hurt your thought on other goals you want acheive. I had a seizure last night which brought me down to a major low today. Thanks to mom and dad bringing out of it this evening. If you need to talk please please don't hide and just let it out. We are all here to help hon...

Hugs

Hi Friends,
Thank you all for your kind words and support. The biggest problem I'm going through is the fact that I was in "stasis" for a few hours. Fortunately it began when I was in a restaurant, and when I was with a friend. She knew things weren't right and called an ambulance. Now I'm a bit worried about being alone when I have another seizure. My Docs found some bleeding in two different spots on my brain, and want me to be watched until I can be seen by the specialist. Thank you all for the great support! Kathy

Hi Kathy, too bad you live so far away. I'd take you out for soup and rolls at the St. Louis Bread Co. Always brings me up a little. Thinking of you!

Hi Kathy,
I am just a newbie but want to let you know that I understand how you must be feeling. I had a set back a few months ago after being grand mal free for 4 years. It sucks, but hang in there things will get better. Take care

Hi All,
Thank you for all your kind words of support. I went to my Doc today, and they're all still baffled about the severity of my seizures. I was in statis. Now I have to have a medic alert bracelet, lifeline etc. I am 48 years old! I'm trying to remain somewhat positive, but it's really hard, considering that I have to have constant babysitters etc. Thanks for all the words of cheer....you guys and gals are great. Also, thanks for thoughts of soup etc! Kathy

Hi All,
Thank you for the many boosts! My Birthday was fine, considering the drama! It really did help me to be able to share my fears, anger and frustration with all of you. Now, I guess the only choice I have is to pick up the pieces and move on. I am fortunate to have you all in my corner! Thank you. Kathy
