setback

i woke up to a partial seizure this morning at 7:45am. i had a 3 month streak going of no seizures until today. it's been a really frustrating day. i've been feeling really good lately, i've had more energy, and now it feels like i'm starting all over again. i talked to my doctor and i'm going to bump up my dose, again. i was sure that i was finally in a good place with my medication, i'd been stable for 2 1/2 months and not had to go up anymore, until today. i'm not sure this will effect my ability to drive or not. i hope it doesn't, but at the same time, i can't be having these if i'm going to be safe driving.

anyway, today's been disappointing and frustrating. i'm not looking for sympathy or comments, i just wanted to get this out.

That sucks...I'm sorry.

My second seizure was the day after I turned 16 and passed my driver's exam! Six months with no driving and I had to turn in periodic reports from my doctor for YEARS! I lost my license once more after getting it back the first time, due to another (unexpected) seizure.
I really hope that I'm not being a downer for you. Just wanted to say I've been there and I know it is REALLY frusturating, but it does make it a little better if you focus on the fact that if you were driving and you had a seizure, something really awful could happen, so it is really for the best.
HANG IN THERE! It does get better! If you ever want to talk, I'm here. How are the side effects from the medicine...any better?
