I think that, as each of us goes through this list, we find something we can personally be grateful for, and our hearts break for many of our fellow seizure sufferers. That is what I love about this board. We are lucky to have each other.
Your predicament is similar to mine, in that I live pretty far from my Doc and the hospital. But, it just so happens that my son has been very active in our local volunteer ambulance corps., and the attendants couldn't be kinder or more professionally trained when I have been forced to call them. In fact, one time I was "in-stat", seizing away while in the ambulance. My husband was out of town, but, lucky for me the crew that was transporting me knew my son's work #. They called him for medical information on me, which helped with my treatment. My insurance has never questioned me calling either, so I feel pretty lucky. I feel so bad for you....to have to drive yourself to the hospital...and SO FAR!!! You going through all this, but my sense was that you were more concerned about what some of the "board friends" are facing. I guess it just goes to show you that we really are all in it together. I feel so blessed by the members on this board. Be well friend....we're here for each other. Kathy
