Birthday seizure

I had a seizure last night on my 32nd birthday. It happened unexpectedly while waiting at a Japanese restaurant for some chicken and shrimp. I had taken all my medicine. Fortunately for me, Christa saw me about to go into the grand mal seizure and was able to lower me to the floor before I crashed to it. I am so very lucky to have her in my life.

This one really got to me because I had gotten plenty of sleep, was not stressed out, had taken my medicine regularly, and had not had many of the smaller seizures that day. I called Dr. Dean and requested an appointment. The nurse recommended that I come in to see a presentation that they were doing on a "new" treatment called VNS.
