So I was doing the forty-minute walk downtown to meet a friend for drinks last night, when I had a seizure. Luckily, I landed on someone's nice soft lawn instead of the road or sidewalk.

I've had epilepsy since I was 17, but only have seizures when I'm severely lacking sleep, or don't take my medication. I had missed a couple of doses because I had run out of pills, and hadn't had time to get to the pharmacy. I also hadn't been sleeping well lately. [Mental note: Find a full-length mirror and kick myself in the arse.]

The ambulance guys asked me if there was anyone I could call. Unfortunately, all my family lives elsewhere. The only person I really have in this city is Swamp Thing. I said I don't have anyone - which was a little sad.

Anyhow, they were very nice about it, and even gave me a ride back to my place.

It just sucks not having that default person to call for everything. I never thought that would happen. That's just one more reason to be mad at her.

I'm so glad you're okay!!

During my divorce, I reached out to a friend from church (we weren't very close then; we are now) and asked if I could use her as my emergency contact for things like my yoga studio. She was very nice about it, and I actually think it helped to facilitate the growth of our friendship, because it kind of clued her in to the fact that I needed people.

Aw Pass, I hear you. I'm 46 and my *mom* is listed as my emergency contact. Sigh.

Glad you're OK. It does suck though, when you're filling out paperwork, and there's no one you can list for "in case of emergency"


Tune out the noise of what others tell you about who you are and work it out for yourself...

Thanks kids. This is the first seizure I've had in almost 10 years, and it must have been a mellow one, because my muscles are nowhere near as sore as they were last time.

I'm feeling okay today, and have my kids with me for the weekend. Weekends are great, because I'm hanging with my boys. The week can suck as much as it wants, but I'm happy to have the bubs arrive on Friday night.

STBX asked me if I'm "still hanging around the infidelity sites" with a facial expression like she was smelling a bad fart. Of course I am. Y'all are my community.

Even when I'm not posting or responding, I'm reading. I feel your pain, your joy, your warmth and compassion.

Thanks for being here.

Glad you're ok and not feeling as bad as you might. Hopefully you refilled your meds.

DS has had seizures in the past but doesn't have a seizure disorder or meds. I know how the after affects can be. He's my contact for everything.

Take care of yourself and have a good weekend with your boys.

BTW, what happened with the friend you were on your way to meet?

Totally understand. Had to give my roommate's number for emergency contact the other day at the ambulance.


Glad you are okay. Talk to some of your friends to have them listed as emergency contact.

I have had to ask people who I barely know at church if I could list them as emergency contacts. I became so isolated during my marriage I had no friends, didn't even know my neighbors, no family in town. Going through this divorce has forced me to reach out to people and ask them to extend themselves towards me. On the plus side, I've become friends with these people!

You shouldn't know the answer to this cause I know you're NC except for kids and finances, but why would she give a shit?

Glad you're ok.

After I told her it was none of her concern anymore, "Oh. I was hoping you had moved on."

She just doesn't get it.
