"I went for a bone density scan at my neurologist's request. I have been on AEDs for about 20 years now, (especially older ones a ways back) and ended up with osteopenia. At least it wasn't osteoporosis, but still not very good. I've…"

Hi Steve,

Sorry I didn't see this sooner! Things are good over here. We are still burying out of frozen slush but had a great holiday. We certainly can not complain about not having a white Christmas.

I hope you are doing well!

Happy New Year!

You can always reach me here. If we find we keep having problems with the word limit, then I'll give you my email address. It goes to my phone, so I try to limit email, so I don't have to hear it go off all day. :D

Looking at the previous conversation, I agree that I have very strange and vivid dreams, too. I always had even worse dreams when I had a TC in my sleep, but my current meds (Lyrica+Vimpat) seem to have taken care of that. I still dream crazy stuff, but at least it's usually not scary crazy stuff anymore. The worst dreams are when I dream I had a seizure. YUUUCK!

Hi Steve. Always nice to add new friends! How are things out your way? Crazy busy here, but always nice to take a break here. Thanks for the good wishes on the sz. It really is nice to finally feel a little more in control. I hope you are doing well and always feel free to drop your fellow Minnesotan a line. Take care, Deb

Hi Steve- Sorry it took me a while to respond. Spring has been good. Not only has the snow melted and trees are turning green, but I think we are finally getting my sz under control. Enjoy the rain today! Take care, Deb

I checked when I first got on here and it was always empty. ...Guess you could say I gave up on it.........

Good to know about the E center...so far I like my neuro but we are still trying to get everything under control (been diagnosed for about a year) and think we may be pushing his knowledge base. I go back next week again and am going to talk to him about that. If I go that route, I may have some more questions for you...It is nice to know someone here:-)

Hi Steve...We only got a little snow up here. You live South of here (correct?) and i think you got hit worse. The only good thing about Spring snow is that it melted really fast and I could see some leaf buds showing up today. Spring can't come soon enough. it's been a crazy year and I am looking forward to the change of season...fresh start ya know.

I haven't been to the MN Epilepsy meetings, but someone told me that they have good seminars

I hope all is well! Deb
