Sorry for 3-month absence on blog and FaceBook; multiple “cognitive events” (probably nocturnal seizures) during those months, each with little time for recovery before the next event.  28Sept2022 EEG was “abnormal”, but no seizures were triggered during the recording— not surprising since the technicians were whispering during the entire time they told me to “sleep”. Growl-snarl..
Events are less frequent right now, (no event in more than a week), which gives me time for recovery, so i am back.

… but these events have given me a helpful foretaste of future symptoms, which i am working on now.

What strategies can i put into place, to better adapt to these not-quite-future symptoms that i experience in the days after an event?  ((Because as my dementia symptoms advance, these will probably be part of my “new normal”.))

i can also consider; With this set of declining Abilities, what activities can i prepare for that will hold my interest in the coming-up stages?


THEN, After those strategies are put in place, i can quit spending time thinking about the symptoms; and

Let it go!

… Put my troubles into bubbles … and blow them away.

or throw a stone to symbolize the fact that i do not need to be worrying about that symptom, because i have done everything i can do about it … and watch the ripples disappear.

THEN take 3 deep breaths to re-set body systems.

  1. Dear Tru, Thank you so much for still posting and including me! I really appreciate your article Letting Go. I think in the same pattern. I try to figure out how to navigate my symptoms as they become more and stronger because I figure that is my future. Then I try to not worry about them because I am used to them. And I try to focus on my family. I am so sorry you have been having those hard symptoms. It is amazing that you found out what they were even though the EEG and the unprofessional staff were not helping you! Sincerely, Jonilyn Barrett barrettjonilyn801@gmail.com

    • Thank you for your comments Jonilyn. Doctor and i still think nocturnal seizures are most probable, but cannot be claimed as fact. That is why he is sending me to a neurologist who has seizures in his specialties.
