Way hey and away we go....

A warning... those of you with my epilepsy journal sickhippo on your friends list will soon be flooded, as I dissect the stuff I read and posted about last night.

Overall, this is a fantastic book, and it's given me lots of insight into what goes on in my brainmeats... and that I've quite possibly had epilepsy for most of my life. Most complex partial seizures aren't detectable from inside, I've read; the epileptic just blanks out. So it's not unlikely that I've been having these, and that it was just the insane amount of stress that was piled on me late last year (I was at the highest levels of PTSD "hyperarousal" that I'd ever experienced, for example) that caused them to manifest in a way that was recognizable to me.

I'll be discussing this with my neurologist at my next appointment, of course.

In the meantime, I'll analyze what I've already read and put the analysis in sickhippo...
