Re: Useful tools and How to Them.... what's handy in memory loss
The neuro journal as asked by my neuro years ago should include more specific information if possible like; Times of every attack, who saw u, how they describe them, not skipping a single spell or else the timing might be off. What You were feeling/doing before, during and after every attack to the best of ur knowledge.
It also includes ur everyday experiences and how the spells are aftecting ur everyday, but not to concrete remembering that this is a seizure journal and that u can/should also have a second journal/diary to include these extra things. Any changes in your AEMs dozes, its affect, ur sleepind patterns, ur diets and more...
Keeping a stick notebook on ur fridge, desk and purse also help u if u write on it everyday what bills, appointments, exams, meetings, and erronds u need to do and by when. Looking at it everyday will become a hobby and it will help ur brain to start storing information. If ur not the writting type, they have a new recorder called "my lil reminder" which u carry around in ur key chain, one home and u leave urself notes or others without writting things down (it might cut down time too..lol) For 20 years these have been a few of my helpers and I know they will help many others.
keep ur personal dairy/notes with all the most important events, of ur life so u can aways go back and remember them, but also most important keep ur neuro journal seperate with all the info i mention above which will help ur neuro with all the info he/she will need to track ur improvement/changes in ur epilepsy seperate as well (this is very important!!)
