I think most of us have done that at one time or another. Please call your doctor or pharm as Candi has suggested.
When I did it yrs ago, my doc changed my dosage for the next 24 hrs so that a toxicity was less llikely to happen. I think he divided(half at bedtime and the 2nd half with my morning dosage) or totally eliminated my bedtime dosage. I hope you understood what I just typed. I was okay.
Are you using a pill box? That will help eliminate the confusion of if you had/hadn't taken your doses. I've used them for a long while now. The boxes also help you to know when it is time for a refill. You can find them in your local pharmacy. Your doc might have some in his/her office. Think about it.
Wish you well. Try not to fret. You caught it in time. Be sure to mark this incident in your seizure diary. You do keep one, don't you?
Stumbling blocks, barricades, detours, etc are a part of life. How we handle them is very important. Yes, we will have defeats and disappointments but we must recover from them. I'm not saying that it's time to run a marathon. What I am trying to say that this is not the time to sit and quit.
I lost my father(legally stepfather) in '09. Since then I've watched my mother steadily go downhill. It is hard to see her that way. She depends on me for so much. Sometimes it becomes difficult for me to be there(I live 30miles from her and don't drive) but I do find a way. She often needs company not just a phone call.
You hang in there. What is on our plate is what we can handle. We must find a way to balance the good as well as the bad so that we can move forward. Detours are probably a way to recognize when adjustments or breaks are needed.
I had a nice Thanksgiving at my mom's. My brother did most of the cooking, while his fiancee and me cleaned up the mess. I still have food left over. It 's been leftovers since Thursday. That's cool with me.
Headaches are gone but something else is amiss. So sorry to hear that. Possibly your depression is due to your concern/love for your father-in-law. That wouldn't surprise anyone.
I do not mind your releasing those feelings . There is more to our lives than ep. We do have other things to deal with. Please continue to share your thoughts and concerns with us.
I'm sure Cody appreciates you being there for him and his family. My best to them also.
Have you checked for web for cancer support groups? This might also help you with your fears/concerns or whatever.
I am the only one in my immediate family with ep. A maternal cousin had ep as a kid but hers disappeared as she got older. My ep is due to having meningitis as an infant.
I have heard that ep is known to skip generations but that is not saying that is a 100% chance for that "skipped generation" to develop ep. The chances are simply higher but not guaranteed.
Epilepsy takes on many forms. Don't let the type of seizure that your fiancees' mom has limit your familiarity of what a seizure is.
Think about talking with your doctor about this concern. Maybe your future mother-in-law can provide some insight or resources for you too. You might want to check out a local epilepsy foundation for additional inform.
In addition to Candi's thoughts/suggestions, I would like to add Amazon as another place to start looking for info about epilepsy.
We all had a lot to learn during the early days. We are still learning cause new info is always being released. We will never know it all but having handy references can be a plus.
Please start that journal and keep it close at hand whenever possible. Questons or concerns pop up all the time.
My story is also available to read. I guess you know that I'm in the head garb. The girl before is Dana(clarinet2) who had her lobectomy (brain surgery that removed problem area) about 4 months prior to mine.
Keep us posted on how you're doing. It is okay to feel fear. It is never okay to not discuss/share your concerns.
