oh it's all the same

Well, I've had 2 more of the partial seizures...yesterday and today. I'm still having a lot of tingling and flash numbness and feeling weird on the right side. My doctor's going to get an earful from me in the morning. I'm tired of feeling this way and there has to be something else they can do besides allow me to feel the way I feel. So I'll be trading my $50/medication for potentially some more expensive medication to make me feel crazy and nuts. It's hard to believe it's already been 5 weeks...it's gone by fast.

Oh and I have a sunburn from my lovely time in the sun yesterday...during which I wore 50spf and spent a gay $9 on Coppertone continuous spray sunscreen only to have it give a neon pink stripe on my right leg, neon pink shoulders and back. Love it.

In other news, Ice Road Truckers, season 2 on the History channel started again and I got to catch up tonight. Booyah!

i've been reading up on whats been going on, and i've been praying for you

oh, and if i guessed the right medication you're on (i'm in pharmacy school) then it can cause photosensitivity, so that's prolly why you got a sunburn ;)

if there is anything i can do, let me know.

i'm on 500mg, Keppra, 3x a day. And if you're right, then i'm even more pissed because my doctor and pharmacist never said anything about being photosensitive...gr!

Cara - I am so sorry that things are so frustrating! I'm sure you are tired of people saying this but I really don't know what else to say. I hope your doctor can give you some answers and God will give you a peace of mind. You are both in my prayers. Love you.

You know what? I almost asked you while we were laying out if you had checked to see if your meds made you more sensitive to the sun. Shoot! Wished I had. Sorry for your sunburn, that stinks.

Anxiously awaiting what the doc says...

Dude! Ice Road Truckers is a great show! I recently started watching it when Stephen and I got FREE cable. Glad to know there's another girl out there watching it too!

P.S. If you need some company... please let me know. I'd be glad to spend an afternoon with you!
