Today is one year from the worst day of my life. Ironically, I don’t remember much of the day. Not that its something I want to remember but still it feels rather strange to have part of the day completely erased or wiped out from my memory.
I feel scared today. I was not sure whether to write this down but I guess I should. So that I can turn my fear into something more positive. So lets start thinking positive now.
I have been seizure free for one year now with the help of medications which my doctor says is a very low dosage and thats good. I hope to be off this toxic medications one day but in the meantime, I must remember to take care of myself.
I must remember to get good sleep and exercise without being too obsessive about it. I am quite obsessive about sleep especially. And I must always remember these words from hubby “You must take care of yourself so you can take care of us.”
I am normally quite cheong hei (long winded) when I write, but today, I feel a bit loss for words. I don’t know what else to write so I shall stop here with a quote.
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Congrats on being seizure free for a whole year, I really admire your courage, your attitude and mostly the way you handle this. In spite of this unexpected obstacle you still manage to live life to its fullest, something even those of us who are not diagnosed with anything have difficulty doing. Good job my dear friend.
Hey woman! I thot you sudah MIA. Hehe. Eh, when you going to blog again hah. Everyone is missing you….
It’s true. Imagine the upheaval in your household if you are too sick to look after the family? Listen to your body, rest if you must. *hugs* 🙂
Listen to your body is very good advise. We must always listen to our bodies. 🙂
hey glad to hear to are ok now. maybe u shd get a maid to help and at least there is an adult there to watch ur kids… jsut my 2 cents
I had a part-timer who comes in almost daily but she’s gone now so yeah, I’m getting a full-time one even though I hate the idea of having one.
Hey…didn’t know you had seizures! For you not to have them for a year already is really good. But I know the fear. I have a friend who also has it…TAKE GOOD CARE please….
Well, I didn’t have seizures till I was around 39 (yes I’m that old. Haha) and then I got diagnosed around 41 when I started having them around once in 1 or 2 years so its not that bad but its still a shock to suddenly get seizures when I never had them all my life you know what I mean plus now I have little ones to worry about too. With medication hopefully I won’t have them at all!
It must have been awful at the initial stage, not knowing when it can happen again.
You’ve come a long way, and managed your condition admirably. Keep up the positive thinking, woman! 🙂
I used to be a very negative person but then I’m married to Mr Positive. Hahaha.
Hope all’s well on the epilepsy front. Contracted it myself after brain surgery in my teens (grand mal) and have been on phenytoin ever since. Know all about having to sleep enough and watch the stress and the gums etc.
Hope alls well with you too. 🙂
