Home from the Hospital


I am home now from the Hospital, and apparently
had a Tonic Clonic, with possibilities I may have broken
my arm/elbow, but it's severely bruised. However, I do
have head injury and I'm scheduled to see my neurologist's Office
this upcoming Friday so everything will be sent to his office.

I really hadn't been in sync since being slammed hard
on with 11 auras on Sept 26th, then next day slammed
with complex partial, then boom (prolly a tonic clonic) with Todd's Paralysis,
which my neurologist knows about that one which took several
days to recover from that one. To which my son and the
tenant had to help me on that one.

And then the following week - come this one; with no one
here; boom - get slammed, and apparently a tonic clonic. And I am
not a happy camper about this at all!

I'm sorry if I've screwed up everything, I just hadn't
really been in sync ~ I've tried to, and it's been up and
down like a yo-yo.

For some weird reason - Fall/Autumn hates me!



My mom had to remind me of that for I had forgotten
about that and didn't need that reminder (the weather out-
side is nowhere or anywhere near Fall/Autumn down here).


I'm trying very hard to keep in sync and it's hard.

Oh no Brain,sorry to hear that you have had so much trouble with your epilepsy.
Do you know why you have so many seizures in the Autumn/fall? Is it because it's starting to get colder over there?
I hope your neurologist will be able to sort these seizures out for you.

Sharon, I am so sorry to hear you are having these episodes. I hope you haven't broken anything. Here's hoping that you and your doctor can figure something out. I can't even imagine what it must be like to deal with this on your own.
Can't imagine what you mean by screwing anything up? Stay healthy and take care.

Thanks everyone, kind of hard to type with
one arm.

ER Doctor couldn't find anything on the
X-Ray, but the Radiologist might, however,
they did find Head Injury - which meant, I had
indeed had a T/C (Tonic Clonic), and they could
see where I was banged up on the right side.

I hate T/C's! No auras - No Warnings - No
nothing! Just El Whammo - You're floored!
All I remember was cleaning (getting ready for
the holidays) and was scrubbing with a pad
with some bleach with my left hand and I don't
even remember what room I was in, but pretty
much my son and tenant believes I was in the
Kitchen as it's the only place where we don't
have carpet in the house.

But right now - I hadn't had much sleep at all
for 4 days, and I was up all night last night due
to idiots hanging around over here as my son is
out of town for awhile.

I see my neurologist tomorrow @ 2:30 PM
