Injury Count

Anyone else?

(I searched for a similar thread, but didn't find one. If there is, let me know and I'll delete this one.)

and you can read about the bad injury I sustained during my 1st tonic clonic seizure. I've had several accidents, since then, but not as bad as the first one.

Two new years eves in a row I fell out of the shower. The first time I knocked a leg off of place on the sink pertty good and the second time just hit it. Superisngly didn't do anything to myself. Afterward that my husband wouldn't let me in the shower on new years eve.

I think my cat knows when I have a seizure coming on and he does know when I've had one. He gets on me and won't budge until he knows I'm ok to be moving around. I think that keeps me pretty safe.

Other than that maybe a black and blue mark here and there but nothing worse than that. Hope I don't jinx myself by saying that!

Well, for whatever reason, the search feature isn't working for me. But that's OK. I was informed anyway.
