A Little Death.

About two months ago, I was out for dinner with my husband. It was a lovely, California evening, so we sat outdoors. The restaurant was crowded with folks who shared the same idea. 
I just finished eating, pushed my plate aside and looked across the table at my husband.

I recall telling him I was not feeling well. I emphasized the statement, saying I was really not feeling well. I had the feeling of hot fingers walking up my back and I thought I was going to be sick.

I began looking at the floor for a place to lie down, but there was no place. 

And then I was gone.

I felt I had been gone quite awhile and as I came back, paramedics were at my side. For the first time in my life, I was going to the hospital!!! For the first time in 40 years, I had seized in a public place.

As it turns out, it was not just a seizure, but two in a row.

Keep calm, it's Christmas!  Be sure to sleep enough, eat well, and stay healthy. Fevers can stress your body and lower your seizure threshold, so take your meds regularly... And, have a peaceful and Merry Christmas!!! 

I will be writing more after the New stay with me.
