    I had an interesting day yesterday.
    I took my car in for servicing and when my daughter came to pick me up, as I was getting in to the back seat, she started to drive away before I was completely in the car and I was dragged a few feet before she noticed. I was wearing shorts and my leg was scraped (thank goodness that was all).
    I should have gone to the hospital but I didn't think it was that bad but today I'm paying for it.

    Hi Randy,
    No I am not. I guess I am not even aware of that site. It sounds like it is not active anymore. What were your thread about? I have been thinking about posting about phenobarb and sleep apnea, but seems like we are about the two left on that drug.

    Hi Randy,I hope you are well and your epilepsy is behaving itself? Not good with my Atonics recently, I was taken to Casualty last month, and kept in overnight, I had nothing with me, I had been out shopping when I collapsed, I guess it was a good job an ambulance was called as I was bleeding so much.
    I have to see a plastic surgeon next Wednesday, he'll say if I need surgery to where I was burnt on my right hand last September, I am still smiling though, what else can we do huh?
    I'm sorry I haven't written for a while, but the eye condition and now my hand injuries has caused problems doing some things, especially as I'm right handed, and yep, it was my right hand I burnt! Also,my memory is getting worse by the day, middle age and epilepsy!!
    Do let me know how you are doing, and I really hope that things are ok with you, and that you will have healthy news? Best Wishes Elaine x

    Hi There
    How nice to see a familiar face!! I had Belinda drop me a line earlier today, asking did I remember her? I don't come on here as much as I used to, but the only reason for that is, I don't recognise any of the folk on here. It is good that new people are joining all the time though I suppose it really is such a brilliant site. Anyway, how are you doing? I hope life is treating you better than it is me? Although, having said that, things are gradually improving for me, I'm still not working, but have been doing a lot of talks on epilepsy around the UK recently, so that's been good, and I recently joined a social group, so I'm getting out and about more now, and meeting people, I was starting to feel like a recluse!! That isn't me, I'm a people person, and needed to get out more.
    I'm still having wobblies, how are yours? I hope you are ok, and I look forward to hearing from you soon? Regards Elaine X

    Hi Randy
    Great to hear from you hun! I'm sorry I've been so quiet, it's just that life is still not the best! I did work on a voluntary basis though, it was just wonderful, no pay, but just to get up, and go and be with an office full of nice friendly folk, and do a days work! Just to be out of the house every day was great I felt like alive I'd re-joined the human race again. But, they moaned about my memory problems? Can you believe that, and I was working for Employment and Disability Services, you'd think they would have been a bit more sympathetic! How are you doing, how are the wobblers, I'm having now have Atonic seizures, just drop to the floor in the supermarket, at the bus stop, it's always men that come to my rescue, women just stand there gawping at me, it's probably because I'm a slender 6' blonde?!?! ha ha ha, it was a tall dark and very handsome firefighter last week, god he was lush!! I still have my sense of humour! Lotsalove Lainey XXXX
