Tried that. Its been under a year, I lost her June 14th of last year, I remember that date so vividly since it put me into a chain of 10 grand mal seizures. Maybe I will try beginning of next year. Maybe they will have forgotten by then. :?:

Wow, so it would seem your seizures are caused by stress... :?


Some are caused by stress. Others just happen. Hence I have Seizures-NOS (Not Otherwise Specified) as my diagnosis.

Yeah, that would pretty much explain it, anyway I know someone else that has CP and his seizures can be bad sometimes, and he's my co-worker too :)

What kind does he have. I have Myoclonic, Clonic, and Grand Mal. Which there's nothing grand about a grand mal. I don't get why they call it a grand mal when there's nothing grand about it.

Problem with mine is they can't be controlled by medication. However minimizing stress (not easy with a degenerative disease) does tend to help for certain seizures. but I still have at least one seizure a day usually while I am sleeping

Most of the time it does. Sometimes I am lucky and it does not. But most of the time I will wake up from it.

That stinks! I have very poor motor control in most of my body, so I'm kinda clumsy, and can't hold things right, but I can type really fast! :D

I cannot write at all. I had to get special permissions from my bank for when endorsing checks to use a special stamp or just endorse with my initials which take up the entire f#cking endorsement area.

Yeah, when I was in High School I had to get special permission to use my laptop in class, and one of my teachers even after seeing the paper that said I needed it in order to take notes, she still said, write it by hand. I told my counselor about it, and we had a little meeting with that particular teacher, and I got to use it, and everyone else asked why I couldn't write everything down by hand, we had a class discussion about it, and that was when everyone in that class found out I couldn't write very well.

Well I don't have my own charge yet. But I am sure that when I move out I might get a small one to make life a little easier and spread out payments. One with low interest and low limit.
