So my absence seizures returned. Lame, I know. Does anyone feel tired after you have absence? I felt tired the rest of the day, but had taken a sedative my neuro prescribed me. However, I am thinking it is more than the sedative because I slept the rest of the day and almost the entire day after.
I was working by myself at a café while my manager was taking a lunch. I had a long line of people to serve, and a girl wanted tea. I put the teabag in a cup and turned around to get a drip coffee ready and the cup was gone. I was certain that I had left the cup on the counter with the teabag inside and just needed to fill it with hot water. Confused, I got a new one out and filled it with water and called her order out. She came to the counter confused saying that I had already given her a cup with a teabag but just no hot water. She gave it to me and I apologized giving her the freshly prepared tea. I didn't remember giving her the tea at all. I thought that was weird but continued serving people until my manager returned. I asked her if she found me acting oddly at all. She said that she saw me stand at the espresso machine with no drinks being made and just stand there staring at it from 15-20 seconds. She also said this happened about 20 times. She didn't say anything to me because she didn't want to seem rude. I thought, oh crap, I need someone to come and pick me up. I called my friend and she walked home with me. Last time I had absence seizures, they preceded a major tonic-clonic.
It is finals week and I was supposed to study all day after I finished working that day. Well that didn't happen at all! I think I failed the test and the class. I put off switching meds because I didn't want it to interfere with my finals. Well that was ironic!
Sorry about the long post, but does anyone else feel really tired after having absences? Especially that many of them. I know it's common after tonic-clonics, but absences? Any experiences with that?
