Just as I was sliding into complacency something happened to jerk me rudely back into red alert.

My son had a seizure on Sunday night,it was a frightening experience and completely shook me up I thought I had seen it all obviously I had not.
The seizure was related to an increased dosage of the medicine he is on.
The doctor has reduced the medicine and added an anti seizure to reduce the chances of it occuring again.
Thats the maximum promise I could extract from the doctor I have learnt not to expect more they really cant give any guarantees.
After a day of slight daze he is back on his feet and fortunately remembers nothing of the seizure expect knowing that it took place.
My panic has still to subside, according to others who have experienced the same, it will take some weeks to fully recover from the fear.
Crying is the best possible release I cried after many months and felt strangely uplifted and clear.
Monica:First I'm so very sorry to hear about the seizure.I work in the health care field and see them daily..I'm not so sure I could handle my son having one. What medication is he on?My son is on Clozapine 300mg. daily but has just been on it since Apr.I will keep you and your son in my prayers.red from ontario.

sometimes crying releases those pent up emotions that we have , feelings that make us feel low, feel tired, feel drudgery...take care.love. puzli

WHO ARE YOU? ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN? WHAT IS YOUR SON'S AGE, CONDITION, PROGNOSIS? I LIVE IN THE US. MY SON IS 16. HE WAS JUST DIAGNOSED WITH SCHIZOAFFECTIVE DISORDER-BIPOLAR TYPE. HE'S HAD SYMPTOMS FOR QUITE SOME TIME BUT I REFUSED TO SEE IT. HIS FATHER IS PARANOID SCHIZOPHRENIC AND I WAS SCARED. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A CHRISTIAN FRIEND TO SHARE THE WAY GOD HAS BLESSED AS WELL AS UNDERSTAND THE "BAD" DAYS. PLEASE WRITE BACK.
