Hot air and universal health care

The first part of this week wasn't too hot, hence my number of simple-partial seizures dropped to zero for 4 days in a row. However, yesterday was pretty hot, and while waiting a few minutes in the car with no air conditioning on, I had one simple-partial. No more seizures that day as I stayed inside.

Just a few moments ago, I had one while speaking briefly to my supervisor about medical insurance benefits offered by employers. It is something I am pretty opinionated about, and I had a simple-partial while expounding about universal health care. I guess my enthusiasm for the topic must have put a bit of stress on my brain...

Serotonin is not only a brain chemical that keeps us calm - but also a chemical that helps regulate body temperature. Thus the phrase hot headed makes sense. I don't know how serotonin might affect seizures tho - interesting. MOM
