Right in the grocery store I have a GM. But it's been 6-9 weeks. That's great!!!!  My mom said that the store employee(s) had to help carry me out to the car. It seemed bad because when I was talking to my dad I couldn't talk and when I was I sounded like a drunk.

Have to face the fact that with the transportation problem and now trouble with my hip working is not the answer. Sure hate to think that but still keep very busy.

Do any of you think my hours may get decreased because some of my hours have been put back to 7am-12:30p (when my hours got decreased to 3 days and not 5 days) and some stay 10:30a (sometimes 10:45a) to 2p. It just makes me a little nervous. But I'm still VERY HAPPY that I STILL WORK 5 DAYS and NOT 3 DAYS.

Erica Thanks a lot it was very hurtful that my son just forgot about me on this day and even more watching other sons and daughters coming to see their parents and bringing them flowers and so forth but oh well life goes on.

Erica I know what you mean and staying busy is the key to success and right now I have been taking classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays and although by mid day I am very sleepy at least I am keeping busy and the seizure activity is almost non existant Was very frustrated on mothers day because I didn't hear from my son but some friends helped me out and that really helped.

I'm saying that it's a GOOD THING!!!! Before my hours were cut from 15hrs.-9hrs. I was bored out of my brain on Tuesday and Wednesday even if I went and volunteered at the food bank for 3-4 hours those two days. Sure I may feel tired when I get home but I'd rather be busy and tired than bored and tired.

Mike hope you get everything worked out because it is very important for you to get the right meds and understand these things so you no longer have problems. I wish you the best and am here if you need to talk.
