Today I went to my lunchtime circuit training during lunchtime. When I was done I took my Fitbit off for my shower. I got dressed and went back to work and realized I left my Fitbit in my locker at the gym. Back to the gym I go. I get back to work and go to lock up my fitbit as I am not allowed to wear it due to electronics rules and I find that I left my key to my electronics lock up still in the lock. $200.00 tablet and a $100.00 heart rate monitor sitting there unlocked free for the taking. I've done that at least two other times. The other times I had probably closer to $400.00 worth of electronics.

Luckily they were still there when I went back to retrieve them.

I am supposedly switching to depakote or vimpat or lyrica (anyone heard of this one? ). All this because my lamotrigine and KEPPRA cause reduction in immune functions and rage problems. Rage that scares people. But depakote means 'blood work' to check liver. Are the poison side effects all worth I it? Please let me know.

What's worse, missing a dose or doubling up on a dose? I don't want to do either really.

This morning before heading of to church I went to make oatmeal. The container we put it in was empty so I needed more out of the pantry. I turn open the fridge, stare at the inside of the fridge and after a few minutes of staring ask myself "what am I here for?" I look around see an empty cereal bowl and remember it's oatmeal.

I enjoy doing fill-in word puzzles & word search puzzles to exercise my mind. Fill-ins are like crosswords in reverse--they give you the answers, and you have to figure out where they fit in. I also like to do jigsaw puzzles.

I downloaded an android app called Neuronation that has a lot of exercises similar to my neuropsychological assessment.

I recently had to switch from Vimpat to Zonisamide (300mg/day) due to our insurance. It also affects memory, I believe.
