well after my seizure

I got admitted to the hospital. They helped w\ anxiety there; but wouldn't write me a scipt.
I have health assistance now but too drained to work on it. Tomorrow seems the day to call the pain clinc. As well a shrink .,.

I barely can moved my muscles are so sore. My brother said I stopped breathing; so guess it was a big one. Against every body mom is here as well .. She had 2 emergency stints put in.

Looks 100% better & dad doesn't know her or I were in the hospital. So resting.

They didn't seem to know, but after hearing the stress, lack of sleep & food assumed that's what pushed it ..

I'm glad you're on the mend, Dennis. Take care of yourself! You can't help others if you keel over yourself!

My husband has seizures where he stops breathing and we have found it takes quite a while to feel back to normal. My advice would be to sleep when you need to and don't try and fight the fatigue. I am sorry you went through this and I am pleased you are ok. Take care xx

Look after yourself Dennis.
Look after your family too, but put you first.
You can't look after them if you don't look after yourself first.

Maybe this is what was needed to get you the right help?
I wish you the best xx

Maybe, but the pain management place I was supposed to use only uses injections, that won't work for me ...

How come - the injections?
Is it needle problems for you? Or have you been down that route already?
What sort of pain is?
You can pm me if you prefer xx

I won't be stuck once a month. I've heard very bad things about that form of treatment from several people..

I'm sorry that you had a seizure. I had them too but I haven't had any for a few years now that I have got my life back on an even keel. I know how frightening it is and I am glad you are getting better. I still see my consultant neurologist about once a year and he said considering that I haven't had one in a few years, it was clear that mine were alcohol related. It does get better. Hang in there.

Thanx; I haven't drank in awhile so not sure where they came from. I know I'm really frail right now physically as well as mentally ...

I don't really know. I need to make it through this holiday. I can not call around or anything .. I am having a very very very hard time dealing with my anxiety.. I also feel too much weight has been placed on me from my brothers .. But not much I can do b\c of said holiday.. Then I'll talk with my personal physician. See if he has any other ideas than doctor needle ...
