    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?

    HI guys,
    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,

    Hi girls,

    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.
