Been Gone For A While

Wow. It's been awhile. Resolutions are hard to keep - and blogging three to five times per week is no exception.  Some of you just make it look so dang easy. The past several days or so, I've been a bit down - and I've been debating whether or not to share that with you - but it was getting to look like it would be an even longer hiatus if I didn't...so here's my sob story, and then we (I) can move on:

I have epilepsy. It's not so bad, really. Actually, it's been a very very long time since it's even affected me at all. So long in fact, that I recently convinced myself that perhaps my epilepsy magically went away. Thursday morning I was reminded to the tune of a grand mahl seizure and a thirty minute black-out that alas, my epilepsy did not go away. In fact, the medication I had been so good about taking (except for the past six weeks) had been keeping me from having lots and lots of these seizures it turns out. I have been spending my days bouncing between self-pity and kicking myself for not taking my medicine. I am ever thankful that I wasn't seriously injured, and that my daughter didn't see it happen - I think that would have really freaked her out.

My last complaint is that the doctor has advised against driving for three months. Seriously?! Talk about paying for your mistakes!

Okay, I am done with the complaining, self-pity, and disappearing acts. It is now time for me to step back up to the world of the living, healthy, happy, snarky, positive, and crafty. Tomorrow, I will return with something fun.

Thanks for reading my rant/whine - I had to get it out.

Wow, that sounds horrible. So glad you're okay. Don't worry about not blogging - the internet will always be here when you get back!

Dont let that get you down and learn that we all make mistakes and we have to forgive ourselves. I have a condition that sometimes limits me and that can make me sad, but I focus on the thinks I CAN do :)

So glad you didn't get hurt. My mother-in-law has epilepsy as well. But I agree, don't let it get you down.. or kick yourself for anything.. blogging can always take a break! ;)
