I paid for having three days with no seizures, today has just been one big seizure 😛
I joke but I’ve felt foggy, distant and confused all day. I had one catatonic seizure where I was unresponsive, but it was only short, and I’ve had some smaller seizures where I’m aware of my surroundings but can’t respond. Outside the actual seizures I’ve just been in a haze, and after each seizure I get more and more tired.
The pink blankety lump is me and Pixie haha! I don’t like my partner watching me during a seizure, so he either goes upstairs or I hide, and he’s allowed to check on me regularly to make sure I’m okay. God help me if it happens outdoors somewhere XD
And I came around to this 😀 ❤
It’s not been the worst day ever though…just incredibly exhausting!!
I made a friend who has NES today, and she directed me to a seizure group on facebook. Everyone there has been so welcoming and I’ve already learnt so much from them.
I learnt that I have an aura before my seizures, which is lucky because I know they’re coming. Mine is feeling detached, having a headache and the left side of my mouth twitches.
I also learnt that when I get ‘stuck’ staring at something and can’t break away, even though I’m aware of my surroundings that’s just a different type of seizure.
Today has been lost in a mess of seizures, confusion and exhaustion. I’ve felt very sorry for my partner who has pretty much been left alone all day haha 😛
I also got some info about what to expect at the Dr’s appt in a few weeks time, but I don’t wanna talk about that just yet. Freaked me out big style and I don’t want another seizure or a panic attack, so for now I’ll just bury my head in the sand.
Despite it being a foggy-head day, I made it out on a walk and I remember most of it.
I think Pixie did really good, and know for a fact we walked almost the entire way hands free with her heeling!!
The one time she lost focus was when two dogs were barking at her about 15ft away, so she pulled to the end of the lead and gave them some huffs. She bounces back from stuff like that really quickly, which is awesome 🙂
She walked in a heel and held eye contact walking past hikers on a narrow bit of road. She came onto my lap on cue to be picked up. We did LAT with some sheep on the opposite side of the stream with zero anxiety on her part. Lots of good stuff.
Bwahahaha, lovely picturesque photo until you see the little zombie dog hahaha!
Zoomie video, nothing much exciting happens, although Pixie does fall in slow-mo and it’s adorable 😀
You might have noticed all my photos are terrible quality at the moment. I haven’t been using my camera much because editing the photos gives me trouble, so I’ve been using my mobile. It’ll do for now 🙂
I seem to just drop food on her. A lot XD
