I have epilepsy, and had been seizure-free for seven years, three months and 25 days...until Tuesday when I had another seizure...boom, out of the blue. One of my medication levels was low as was my albumin, and a nutritionist at the hospital told me I needed to boost up my protein. Now I seem to be at a standstill (loss of 18 pounds), and don't want to stop until I lose 12 more pounds. However, I cannot, absolutely can NOT risk a protein level that's too low. So I'm trying to keep everything in balance. Yesterday I was so awfully tired, but I think the Ativan was still in my system. Today I feel wonderful and am accomplishing a lot. I've eaten well and exercised, so hope I'm getting back on track. It was a setback, to be sure, but it hasn't derailed me.
