Oh, JD. I hate that for you. What a horrific experience to go through, compounded by the manager's nasty reaction.
I don't have any answers for you, unfortunately. I'm with the others in suggesting you go to your neurologist and have him or her do some (more) testing. It may be that your medication is no longer effective against your particular brand of seizures and he needs to try you on something else entirely. Three of my siblings (out of the six of us) suffer from idiopathic seizures, so I'm aware of the ins and outs of medication to control them. Sometimes everything can be under control for years and then they come back with a vengeance due to changes in routine, diet or stress.
:grouphug You're in my thoughts and prayers. You are a strong person, and you'll get through this. PM me if I can help, or if you need someone to vent to. Venting always helps. :lol.
Here's my trouble in one word: WORMS!
Yuck, ick, nasty, disgusting worms! I thought I saw something whitish on this cat's bum a while ago and told the rescue but today - nasty white worm wriggling itself out of her foster body, so disgusting! Worms, and not one pill easy to go away tapeworm either, but writhing long roundworms, I just mopped my living/bedroom three times and am off to wash everything in existence in hot water while preparing to clean up the dining room.
J.D. add me to that list of get back to the docs. and my prayers are with you too.
I'm so pissed off. My flight for Italy that was supposed to leave at 8pm today is cancelled. I'm now leaving at 5pm tomorrow. Everything (including the connecting flight) has been rearranged, but now I'm stuck home an extra day. Plus, rescheduling sucks more when you have a baby involved. You can't just take anything.
My Mom (81) just found out that she has breast cancer. She appears to be very "what ever" about it as though it's just one more blip on life's radar screen. She had planned to visit my sister in AL for a month or two starting in Sept, but expects to have to cancel now.
My standard way of dealing with things that overwhelm me is to pretend they don't exist. I'm trying to be supportive by spending a lot of time with her, but worry that if I can't control my distress, it will cause her to dwell on the negative.
Ah Dberk and everyone else :grouphug I'm here for ya' !

Okay, so I thought about driving myself to the hospital last night - just a couple miles away - but since this hasn't happened before - I didn't dare.
The reason I brought up the bump into the truck in front of me - in the drive-up lane, no less ( :blush ) - I was thinking that the seizure was starting then. I tend to get confused before having one - and so I guess I was sort of working through my behavior....I don't know. None of it makes sense, and these damn things don't run on a schedule! :pissedoff
I did have a seizure one time back before I was diagnosed. I was working, and my boss told me to fax something. I went in the "copy room" and tried and tried, and couldn't get it to work. Finally my boss said something and I turned around and saw he was behind me. He said I'd been trying to send that fax via the copy machine for 45 minutes. No wonder it wouldn't send.
Yeah, I'll definitely be at the doctor's office first thing Monday. I know if I call her today she'll send me to the ER. Nothing against the ER - I just don't want to be there for eight hours for them to tell me - yep, it was a seizure. Go see Dr. S. on Monday. :ohno
You all are so smart! I didn't know that a drug could become less effective over time. It makes sense tho. Like my body just accepts the chemicals and moves on to needing something different? Is that what you meant?
Ain't that the truth!
Venting always helps
Thanks all of you! I appreciate your advice, suggestions and of course the group hugs don't hurt. It really helps to get other people's points of view, too.
Thanks again. I'm absolutely overwhelmed.
By the way - does anyone have a great big trunk that a person would fit in? If they tell me I can't go to fortcon - I'm going in a steamer trunk. Dag - how big is your car?
I have a two person pick up and am going alone so there is room. If you need to hide from the doc, we can cover you up with a blanket....or bungee you down in the bed and cover you with a tarp. :winkgrin

Roses - you got yourself a deal. Super careful. No driving.
When I was first diagnosed years back - my neuro wanted me to wear a helmet! (it's okay to laugh at that one - it's a tad extreme in my opinon) And I wasn't allowed to take a bath (absolutely no showers) without someone in the bathroom with me. Personally, I think the husband bribed her to say that one. And the worst part of all - mandatory driver's license suspension for an entire year! :thud Okay, buses, here I come. Helmet and all. :lol
I figure the results will be the same no matter what my attitude is, so I might as well laugh about it.
