I had a Seizure for the first time due to being put on Paxil. Doctor Ross from Deacons here in the city put me on them. I had valid reasons to be placed on an antidepressant but not a red label pill.
I always struggled with depression due to childhood trauma and I was diagnosed with PTSD. In 2008 my grandfather died then my husband’s ex wife decided to put our family through a high conflict custody battle. There was false allegations of abuse and I took those allegations hard. I went into complete depression having to deal with childhood trauma, the death of my grandfather, and the ex-wife.
Now back to my Seizure. The other morning when I woke up I kept on dropping things randomly. I dropped my water, I dropped my curling iron on me, and I lost balance. I told my husband that something bad is going to happen today but I wasn’t sure what. I also told him that I may not make it home later today. He said not to do anything stupid and I told him I wasn’t suicidal but something was wrong.
I went to school and my hand twitched but I didn’t think anything about it. I continued with my school lecture and even helped out other students with their work. School was fine but when I went to my car everything changed. I remember chatting with a classmate about helping her with her papers and that’s all I remember. I woke up to a fire fighter trying to wake me up. I passed back out then when I woke up I was in the hospital.
I’m scared to death right now because I’ve never had a Seizure. I’ve had three small ones but it wasn’t too bad. I can’t drive until 6 months with no Seizures. I can’t imagine having to deal with Seizures daily like some people do.
My health is crap and I’m tired of relying on my husband for every thing. I’m so blessed to have him but I’m also tired of dealing with health issues.
