Today I worked from 9:30 to 5:30. Crazy! A normal working day, and I made it all the way through. Only 3 seizures during that time! All atonic.
I had a few time travel seizures today, which was odd. Haven’t had any of them in a while, but I had 4 today. One around breakfast time in the car, and 3 this evening. One was really cool because I didn’t know what my cell phone was, and when Adam flipped out his, I freaked OUT thinking it was just like Star Trek… I was so stoked!
And I got to fall in love with Adam again tonight. 🙂 One benefit of those forgetful seizures. I get to see him anew. My word, is he beautiful to me. Even when I am post-ictal (meaning “after-seizure” – sort of in that weird “not quite all the way awake” state), all I can think is that he is the great love of my life. *sweet gushy smile* Okay. I’m all warm and fuzzy over here. Enough of that!
So tomorrow is New Year’s Eve. It’s said that what you do on New Year’s Eve kind of sets the tone for the new year. I’m pretty sure I spent NYE on the couch, having seizures and feeling like crap last year, and I’ll be damned if that isn’t how I spent the majority of the year. I’m gonna see if I can’t change it up a little this year. Adam’s sick with what I was sick with this past week, though. Unless things change and he feels better, it’s gonna be the two of us, a video rental, and the couch again – same as always. I wonder what I can do to make it special somehow. Sparkling apple cider, maybe?
I do think that I’m gonna have some black-eyed peas if I can find em, on New Year’s Day, though. What can I say — you can take the girl out of the South, but ya cain’t take the South outta tha girl! 😉 Baby needs some good luck this year, and superstitious or not, it can’t hurt to get some extra protein and fiber. Of course, I also kind of hate black-eyed peas. (Sad truth…) I might just dip apples in honey like it’s Rosh Hashanah, part deux… but even I know that’s cheating. 🙂 Still, if it makes you happy, what do you need luck for? Hm… things to think about!
So what are you all doing for New Year’s Eve? What are your New Year’s Day traditions?
As for “resolutions,” I think I’m pretty full-up already, what with the Swank Diet and studying for the bar exam while still having a job.
In all, I think I’m headed in the right direction for a good 2010. I just have to keep my cool and remember to take every day one at a time. Honestly, I’m really looking forward to it. 🙂
I think this year is going to kick ass.
Don’t get me wrong. I know I’m going to be doing a lot of work, but I think I’m finally going to understand how to live without unnecessary stress. It’s like I’ve finally remembered how to achieve by “forgetting” the larger goal and simply focusing on the tasks at hand. I finally feel like things are going to be okay. Whether it’s the increased Cymbalta or me doing the work psychologically – or the combination, I’m very, very glad for it.
So – in case I forget to post tomorrow – Happy New Year everybody!
I hope 2010 brings you enough happiness that you feel pleased with life, enough challenges that you aren’t bored, enough strength and grace to weather those challenges with ease, and enough humor to make the stories good. 🙂
