I am so blessed to have my wife who does most of talking care of me and the House. I have a TBI which is a handicap with seizures I can't drive and oh I would not be here if not for her. And she is a step mom to my son, which is a job alone. We only get him part time. we also have lots of normal everyday catastrophies. Medical marijuana chills my nerves that I do not seize. When I had a complex partial my wife gave to me my portable pen for oil use and the seizure stopped. Using everyday and go a record 1.5 years. I am not a medical advise of any sort. I never even went to Med
school.

I live on my own so I do everything for myself. My mum used to come to all my neurologist appts with me but then after my surgery we had an agreement that I’d go on my own.
I now go on my own to the epilepsy clinic to see the neuro and neuropsychologist, all my mum asks is that I ring her after I seen the specialists to let her know how it went.

My parents do help me with some things but not too much any more as they’re both getting older and my dads health in particular isn’t great. The main thing my parents do for me is take me food shopping once a fortnight for a big shop but if for some reason they can’t take me shopping I just stop st the shops on my home from work and grab stuff or get what I need on the weekend.
