Changes . . . .

Life sure feels different post seizure. Some things are better, some not so much. For example,  I am sleeping better, not running to the bathroom every 30 minutes, and not drinking 20 tumblers of water a day. I am not hungry so have lost four pounds just in the last 5 days. Instead of being warm all the time, I tend to be cold.

On the other hand, I have NO energy. All I want to do is curl up on the couch or go for a ride in the car. (Good gawd, I sound like the family dog. If I start chasing my tail, I'm in trouble.) I don't want to read. I don't want to talk because my tongue hurts. I look at work and am absolutely overwhelmed to the point of tears. I am learning to inject myself twice a day but it ain't fun. The anti-seizure meds give me a stiff neck and headache.

Whine, whine, whine.
I will get back into regular life again soon. Having a tongue without a hole in it will help. :) And I'll get myself some energy somewhere but gosh, I wish me and the dog could trade places for a week or so.

Hey Tami,
Just checking in on you. I am sorry this is going to be a slow recovery for you. Give yourself the luxury of time! One of your characteristics that I enjoy the most is your sense of humor, so happy to see that you still can use it. Go ahead and take a page out of your dog's book. Hang your head out of the car window and let the wind blow!!!

I'm just glad you're around to whine, although I don't know that I'd call it whining! :)
