I hope you are OK, and that your own medical issues have some resolution too. Have a good rest of the day. ginnie
Ginnie, You are so right about being accused of using it as a crutch, and them not understanding the struggles. She is on an anti-convulsant like me, for Epilepsy, and like me has Hydrocephalus. She is bursting with confidence that she can handle anything sent her way. While I admire that. She has also used it against me. She did apologize for that.
My medical issues did flare up Super Bowl Weekend of 2011. When I had a grand-mal seizure. That was the most recent, after 2005. But that was due to exposure from the fumes of resetting the heating tank.
