I've been missing for a great while due to health issues. But I'm Baaack! After many long years I finally have a diagnosis and drugs that work! It seems somehow at this late age I've developed absent status epilepsy. My brain seizures were causing me to "go absent" for periods lasting up to six days. Then come back for around 10 days only to go absent for another 3-6 days. To say my wife, (adult) kids, and I have been to hell and back over the last few years is putting it mildly. But after starting the drugs last December I've only had one seizure that lasted only a few days. So I'm back.
I must tell you having a wife of 40 years who is able (and even willing) to care for me during those times has been crucial. She was truly my advocate - and took care of my Type 1 diabetes (yeah, the shots, making me eat while absent, etc.). So, it's my prayer that any and all of you have a support team like mine who is with you whenever (if ever) you need one.
Best wishes to you all!
Be on the look out for a picture of a shawl I just completed on Friday!
