Epilepsy, lack of sleep, and an awesome hubby
Friday, April 26, 2013
I have been a little absent from here for the last couple of days. I had a Very rough day before yesterday, and spent most of yesterday taking it easy and recovering. I'm epileptic, and the day before yesterday I had 3 seizures over the course of the day and ended up in the ER. *sighs*
They ran levels, did a ct scan, and everything was fine. The verdict? The seizures were triggered by lack of sleep (with a newborn, duh!) and the fluctuating hormones. It was, of course, a very scary crappy day. Yesterday I slept 12 hours straight, then get up for about 2 or 3, and went back to bed to nap for another hour or two. Thank heavens for my awesome hubby who kindly picked up the slack with Nathan, as well as his mom who's been helping out.
Today I'm feeling better, still a bit tired, but certainly more functional than yesterday! My neuro added a new med to my daily regime, so hopefully the side effects won't be too bad. One of the side effects of this one is to decrease appetite (Why do they all play games with your appetite!? Makes it REALLY hard to be healthy!) So hopefully I'll be able to get around that without too much trouble!
