I DONT SEE ANY NEW POSTS THE LAST WEEK....
I'm getting scared. I started taking Keppra about two weeks ago but I forgot to take it Saturday night before I went to sleep. While I was sleeping I had 3 seizures and threw up all day long. Now I feel like I'm in a dream and I actually hear music when I know that there is none playing. I don't know what is going on but I'm really, really scared. I think the seizures really damaged my brain because I'm hearing and seeing things. Then I have this other problem with my thyroid (or so they think) and it's causing me to pass out. Right now I just want to cry because I'm not myself. I keep thinking, "Why did God do this to me? Why can't I just be normal?" but then I realize that this isn't punishment (even though it feels like it sometimes). What do you think?
I just got home from the hospital on Monday after having a hysterectomy and bladder surgery. The bladder surgery was because of my pregnancies (thanks girlies!!!). The hysterectomy was an attempt to help with my seizures. My ob/gyn thinks that because my periods WERE (yay-never having one again!!!) so heavy, they were putting a lot of stress on my body which may have caused some of my seizures. Well, I had one in the hospital two days later, but we have to look at the positives-no periods and no more peeing my pants every time I move!!!! I hurt-my belly hurts and it is hard to move around, but I am slowly getting better. I HATE having to ask people for help-ugh.
I hope everyone else is okay.
Have a good, snowy (yes, it is snowing in Salt Lake City at the end of April-sheesh!) day,

I am doing ok. Still having seizures pretty much once a month even while on BC. I go to the neuro in a few hours for a check up. I agree with lostmama though get to the doctor asap because I take Keppra and I don't hear things that aren't there.
I hope everyone is doing ok.
