The Future's Bright

With a new day comes a new hope in the form of a Psychologist at my local Hospital who believes she can help me with the seizures I have been bombarded with for the past eight years. Gone is the diagnosis of Pseudo Seizures and now in the running is a diagnosis of damage to my nervous system.

This may seem totally in the opposite direction to my previous diagnosis but hey the one before that was epilepsy and before that was a stroke so they are getting closer to a realistic reason for these seizures. Saying that I will have to now be placed on a waiting list to see a Neuro-Specialist and UK NHS waiting times are famous World wide for their length (possibly 9 months) but optimism is what I’m going with on this one not my usual pessimist attitude, optimism reigns supreme.

That being said the fact that she doesn’t hold out much hope for the seizures stopping, I mean stopping full stop merely cutting the sheer number down to a couple a week or something like that but hey I’ll take anything at this point as I’ve had upwards of six, seven a day at times and I’m a big guy, REALLY REALLY BIG GUY when I fall I fall hard, I’ve had enough broken bones, concussions and a dislocated shoulder to prove that point.

But alas optimism is what I’m going for on this one, optimism reigns supreme.

Thanking you
