Gran

My awesome week continues:

I spent all night last night in the ER after having a seizure. The last thing I remember was sometime after eleven, watching tv. I had a split second of wooziness then woke up in the ambulance.

I've had a handful, maybe six, of seizures over the last ten years, the last one being around four years ago. So it's not a serious or disruptive problem. Still, I wish I had none.

We've never been able to discover what causes them, what triggers them, which is the way these things are.

Tired. Didn't get out until around six this morning.

So sorry to hear it. I've had them on a regular basis since I was a kid, though when I'm properly medicated the chances are much less. Still, they're awful and somehow embarrassing, at least that's how they've always felt to me. (take care)

Hope you are feeling better, Paul. Perhaps it was the staccato lights from a car comercial?

How did I not know about this? You know, of course, that I'm epileptic...

It's hard, but you're strong.

Love.
