Default October is seizure month! (seasonal seizures)

Good luck to all of the seasonal seizure-prone!

I had several SP's last weekend, and today, not a big deal. I just wanted to wish you all luck; if they're gonna happen, let them be mild.

Tell me about it. I was lucky enough to escape getting them on my dad's b-day, but they most likely will hit me...and with the rain and the cool down, I'm just bracing for them...


LIZARD, dreading the fall of fall

Yep, you're right. I had a run of nine SPs within about 2 hours last week! I know this is normal for a lot of folks, but not for me. When I have a run of 'em that bad, it is ALWAYS in the fall. Usually November, but guess I got to have the fun early this year! And I also had my one and only GM in the fall. (Almost a year ago and no more since then! Yeaaa!) I live in a place where it's currently 75 degrees, sunny, not a cloud in the sky, the zucchini and tomatoes are still happily growing, blah blah blah, but my body still seems to pick up on the fact the days are growing shorter or something.

Hi Folks,
You can count me in, I've had a lot of absence and cp sz. this month and in Sept. I'm going to try using light therapy for 30 min. each morning when I eat my breakfast to see if it will help reduce my sz. Here's wishing all of you the best of luck and May God Bless You!

Surprisingly predictable, isn't it?

We're still in the 70s, so I hope the nasty things don't hit me on my b-day (2 weeks away).

Always good to check in.

Korban has been on his worst run of absences in the last 5 weeks averaging 5 a day.

Here's hoping for a calmer winter

Huh? Never thought about it as being a seasonal thing. But the frequency and intensity of the suckers this month have been horrendous.

At least still walking around, even if I look confused half the time...

Be well everyone-
Stace

Good grief, I am glad I am not the only one who has the same problems. Absences are not as bad as the SPs I get w/weather changes, but the headaches with both are.
