PNES & Me: Power Outage from Five Storms

Apparently it’s the biggest power outage in my state since 2005. It could be days before we get our power back, so we’re staying in a hotel because it’s hot and humid outside. I don’t do heat well, my breathing gets really bad and it could turn into an asthma attack.

Anyway, I just wanted to let y’all know I’ve been seizure-free 7 days and counting!!! I’m so excited.

UPDATE: Therapy for Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizure Disorder (PNES)

This special, targeted cognitive therapy is really helping. Not only with the PNES, but with other parts of my life too. I had no idea I was so stressed about life things.

I want babies. I want a house. I want a dog. Well, my therapist made me realize I should be content with TODAY rather than focusing on the future. If it happens, great. If it doesn’t happen, it’s STILL great. Life is what you make it, and he helped me see that.

I haven’t been severely depressed since I’ve started seeing him, because I am looking at life and things differently. It’s so amazing that a chance in thinking can really help.

Obviously, it takes a lot of work, and maybe some medicine to help you get there if you have a real chemical imbalance, but it’s doable.

I like my life now. Even with all the medical problems and being dead broke. I have love, and a roof over my head. And for now, that’s all I need.
