Talking Re: Merry Christmas To Everyone!!

I wish that all of us would have great holidays. Yesterday, for Christmas, our extended family got together. One of my nieces, also an epileptic, is trying to get into nursing. She is doing very well, considering that she cannot drive. I know that we have all been prescribed medicine, but sometimes the best medicine is a good attitude and a good laugh!

Hoping that we all get such medicine!

Re: Merry Christmas To Everyone!!

Hi Vickie and Everyone,

Glad to hear that you had a Merry Christmas.I had a seizure
in Christmas Eve,but,felt great on Christmas Day and the 26th
went out with family for some after Christmas deals in wrapping
paper etc.then I had to stay at my parents until today because
I had seizures on the 27th and 28th and plenty of auras.Feeling
great now and will be celebrating the new year in with 2 close
friends.Happy New Year to everyone!! Take care,Sherri

Re: Merry Christmas To Everyone!!

sherri
could you tell me what auras. are? and what happens when we have one of them im still a bit confused about what that is .i had 2 seizures at my moms came home done fine went to my old dr since my other dr left the practice and i didnt really like the staff so went back to my old dr my b/p is great i pushed the wheelchair in didnt fall or nothing got home still did fine i had my last seizure so far on the 25th so thats good ,i tried the klonipins 1 mgs did great the first day i was so hyper and couldnt sit still was up doing everything but then the next day when i took 1 i couldnt calm down and i dont understand why it was 6 hrs later and i was still shaky and nervous so i had to take a xanax within mins i calmed down and this is the year 2008 i hope we all get better and that our seizures go away (wishfull thinking i know) i go to the neuro dr jan 10th and hes to maybe start me on seizure meds plus do a tilt test and possibly another MRI i really dont know but he may switch me xanax but i dont want to switch if they take forever to calm me down i mean i was freaking out so i took a xanax and was calm so i dont know why the klonipins didnt help but the first day i only took one pill and felt great ,but maybe later i can get them to work im hoping something will and guess what else im not depressed so far im even dressing up and wearing makeup and listening to music dancing i just have a good feeling that this is the year where im going to get better cause i so much want to go back to work and drive and walk into places without falling and having the time of my life and someday that will happen .
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE LETS MAKE 2008 OUR GOOD YEAR!!!!

Re: Merry Christmas To Everyone!!

Hi Vickie,

I am glad to hear that you have been up wearing make-up,
dancing etc.Maybe they can lower your dose on the klonopin
so you won't get so anxious.
Auras are a feeling that you have that you are about to have a
seizure,sometimes I have those but do not actually go into a full
blown seizure.I guess we all have different little warnings(feelings).
It is really hard to explain what that feeling is like,I kind of feel like
my head is about to explode.Maybe you can start a thread titled
auras and just ask everyone to try an explain what kind they get
and how they feel.I am sure there is many different types of warning
signs.But,an aura is mainly how you feel right before a seizure,sometimes
I do not even get an aura and just go right into a full blown seizure
without no feelings,that is when I may hurt myself,cause I don't have
no time to try and sit down etc.I have also heard that some
doctors say that they are actually a type of simple partial
seizure.
I hope you and everyone enjoys breaking in the new year tonight.
Take care,Sherri
