Having a Tough Time

Over the past week things have been a bit tough. Since I've been having seizures they have always seemed to change in impact and severity. This past week has been full of chompies and head shaking. It seemed like it was never going to end. Every couple of hours I'd be chomping my teeth. Then a break of 5 minutes before chomping again. This would go on for at least 3 more times and then a break for an hour or two before coming back.

Through the night I might get some sleep and go without chomping for 6 hours or so. Often I'd wake dad chomping and falling over though. Today it seems it's come to an end or maybe just giving me a break.

The last seizures were also different. Previously I'd have a seizure and then jump up and charge around full of energy. The past few were completely the other way around. I was downstairs with mum when all of a sudden I jumped up and ran as fast as I could up the stairs into the room with dad. I then stared at myself in the mirror before falling over and going into a seizure. Afterwards I just slept a while and got up normally.

This is certainly a very strange condition. Nothing is ever the same, but at least we're at the point where nothing is unexpected anymore.
