So I'm still standing, sort of... After the seizure I was feeling beat up, took three days to recover went to a painting party with my niece (that I promised two months ago that I would attend) only to wind up sick. I was out of work for another week with a sinus infection and bronchitis. Now everyone in my house is sick with a stomach virus of sorts and I'm bumming rides from coworkers to and from work.

I hate not being able to drive until I see the neurologist in October and get a thumbs...

Good morning! I had another seizure Tuesday at work, my whole body is killing me; I'm bruised, sprained my ankle and bit my tongue pretty bad. I was worrying/stressing about a project that I wasn't given enough time to complete, I have to get the office set up, ISP, telecom, alarm systems, PItney Bowes and PC's. If I don't get the services brought in on time they can't open and loose money and well I'm a bit stressed over this because they forgot to tell me the anticipated move in date and only ...

Good morning,

All test results are in and normal, doctors say the seizure was stress but we are still waiting on a second Lymes test to be certain. I also received my medical release to go to the gym YAY!!! With the condition that I don't train until I have worked (slowly) my way back up to 1 hr of cardio so I know what I can handle...well duh!

So happy though, I called Elle and she wants to meet me at the gym and ride with me to keep an eye on me to make sure I don't over exert mysel...

I'm feeling stronger every day, but particularly today, I feel the most like myself. It's weird though because the whole experience was so surreal that as much as I want to be whole again I don't think I will ever be the same. I see everything so differently now, more in tune to what really matters, my family and yes be even more focused on my health for myself and my family.

I'm evaluating my life to see what changes I can make to reduce stress that truly would be a "choice", I f...
