Oh yes, this shit again  
I've been trying to cut back on the meds gradually, incredulous that they are really necessary. My one doctor was amazed that I was taking as little Keppra as I was to begin with, so maybe I don't really need the shit, right? I cut back to 500 mg a day, and that has been going pretty well. You have to take your dosage down gradually, because the sudden lack of medicine to your system is itself enough to cause a seizure (and is probably the reason I had Seizure At Work #2).

But then I was an idiot and forgot to take several doses this weekend, and I'm paying for it. Just got over my second partial seizure (one of those dizziness/nausea spells) for the day, and I can't take any medicine 'til I go to bed (timing on this shit has to stay consistent). I'm weighing the idea of burning one of my sick days tomorrow. Even though I'll be back on my med schedule by then, there may still be reprecussions- and considering the amount of driving I have to do to drop Remy off at work and then take myself to my place of employment, most of it on highways... well, that'd be a bad place/time to have another partial, much less a full-blown one.

I'll feel bad about skipping tomorrow, though, 'cause my boss pushed to get me into software training Monday and Tuesday that would be good for me to participate in, even though I technically shouldn't be allowed to sit in on it. It's training for a specific client, and they pay extra to keep it private, I'm pretty sure, but this class comes up rarely for a public audience. I'd be there on the (false) premise that I'm "learning how to teach the class" or some such BS. They'd better not make me train at this job! ;)

I'll also feel bad because I promised lsduncan that I'd hunt up a TrueType file on my Windows box there, and I don't want to set him back a day. ^_^* I may be able to drag that file off my un-intarwebbed Windows box, though, so maybe that's a moot point.

In typical Me fashion, I dunno what I'm doing yet. We'll see.

In random news, we watched a video of Cowher talking to Stan Savran before the Steelers preseason began, and Remy's playing Civ IV as the Persians, and the units speak Farsi when you click on them. Between those two things, I'm feeling kinda homesick. ^_^*



EDIT: I was feeling better for a while, but I just had partial number three for the day. Yup, definitely not going to work tomorrow.

Aw, don't feel bad if you can't. There's no need to worry about something so insignificant in comparison to your health. If it so happens that you can't send me the font, then I'll simply find some other means, and it's by no means so necessary that I must have it tomorrow. Take care of yourself first and foremost, and then concern yourself with other things. **hugs**

I'm usually the one that shows up to work half-dead, or even full-dead but if you think there might be any troubles with you driving, it's probably best to call out. There's no reason to put yourself in that situation; people will understand.

I definately understand. With my low blood pressure, I've been told no driving if I get any of the vision things, or if I abort an attack or flat out have one. I told my manager that this might mean I call out. She was understanding, and I'm sure your manager will be too.

*hugs*

Do feel better though!!

Honey, I don't want to sound like Mom or anything, but I think you should've listened to me when I said not to cut your meds until you know more about them and what they do for you.

You really have to start taking better care of yourself. You think I want to take HRT pills every single day for the next 25 years??? No, certainly not, but I have no choice.

Please reconsider the situation and NEVER cut your meds (partially OR completely) ever again.

I love you. Please take better care of yourself.
