My bf had 4 seizures between the hours of 6:45 and 9:45 am. Scary and strange, nothing like that has ever happened before, I've known him for 10 years. I didn't know anything about seizures until a week ago, now I know that there are a million and one causes to the stupid things. I really hope that they find the cause for your friend so that he can move on with his life. It is not fun just sitting and waiting for the unknown to happen. I'm sending him my most positive thoughts right now!!!!!!!!
P.S. My bf's been fine ever since, we had to spend one night in the hospital, he lost some memory but it's improving every day.

I was just wondering about that myself. I know from my own experience that job stress can affect your health. Also, knowing that he had that one year deadline had to be stressful. I am adding him to my prayers.

Thanks Barbara, I told him he needed to relax for a few days but being stubborn he was out working on a car, told him if he needed to talk he knows my number. I think I'll call him in a day or so to see how he is.

Some people feel more relaxed when working on something than just sitting around. So working on the car may have been good for him.

I agree, B. My 60 year old cousin had her first major seizure at age 52 and for no reason. She is now on phenlybarbitol and Texas will not permit her to drive. So she stays home, takes care of my 85 year old aunt, and is now taking online courses. She only has them ever so often but because of the meds they are mild and don't last long. I'm so sorry for your friend, Mikki, how frustrating. I certainly will pray for you friend that his seizures can be helped so that he can go back to work.

Sounds like James when he is working on something! He is never happier than when he is challenged by something he is working on! He always says he would rather have something used, that he worked on and got working right, than to have something new.
