Presently I like to do things but being sedated, I don't have the zip to do the things I normally do and I love to help. I fall asleep in a snap. My seizures seem to be a tail on a dog right now because I am so drowsy.
I have raised 2 wonderful children one in college one getting ready for college. Yikes!
I used to work as a Neurodiagnostic Tech. so I understand both sides of the picture but now. I am the patient. I feel I need to close my mouth and listen to the doctor.
I love walking outside to clear my head of any confusion. Plant , plants in spring or walk in any season. Unfortunately my walking seizures are back. I find a neighbor to walk with.
I love game shows, love antiques, love animals. Wish I could work in time maybe I will volunteer again.
