I’m feeling quite overwhelmed as of late. We keep receiving more and more bad news. I mean, bad news is probably the wrong word choice but it’s pretty darn close.
The latest addition to the Lost and Tired family symptoms list is now seizures. I was positive that I was going to get the EEG results back for both Gavin and Elliott and everything would be normal. I wasn’t prepared to hear that they are having seizures.
Honestly, I don’t even know what to do with that information. The only experience I have with seizures is as a paramedic.
I always say that I hate going to an appointment looking for answers and end up with more questions. That has been the status quo for as long as I can remember. Yesterday was one of those rare occasions where we actually got answers.
However, we got just enough information to worry. We simply don’t know enough yet and so more tests are going to be needed.
I have to say, the most frustrating part for me is that we still don’t know why any of this is happening in the first place. I have no health problems, aside from my cholesterol is out of balance. Lizze has tons of health issues but most of these are caused by long term stress and not something that would necessarily be passed down to the kids.
Why is it then, that they have all these bizarre health issues? We’re not even talking common disorders. I mean, some of these issues are very rare.
I just don’t know what to do at this point.
Seizures are the newest problem that we have to contend with. They have likely been there all along, just undetected. We were blissfully ignorant for all this time and now that we know about the seizures, we are worried.
I don’t think there are enough. Antidepressants in the world to even take the edge off.
