Had neuro appt yesterday. Decreased my Tegretol dosage by another 200 mg. Down to 400 mg/day, which is half of what I've been taking for 30 years. No headache like last decrease. I'm feeling encouraged but still scared because I don't 'trust' the Keppra yet. I have not bonded with it and it does not make me feel safe. I wonder how long it will be before I can go thru a whole day without thinking about whether or not I'm going to have a seizure today? I want my life back. I'm tired of having my thoughts consumed by this process and this disease. I want to be me again. Before I left yesterday, my neuro said, "sit tight - you're going to be just fine." I really needed to hear that from him. He's been super-supportive and really seems to care about me feeling comfortable with this process. Problem is, most of the time I don't.... Gotta look at the bright side - it could be SO much worse. I could be HAVING seizures - not just THINKING about having them. I need to stop being such a baby and count my blessings. Thanks for listening.
