Calling on my DC friends

I just talked to one of my good friends from the place I used to work, Well A year ago just before we lost our jobs(March) he had a seizure for no apparent reason. He was going to get his CDL to drive truck because thats the only jobs available in our area. DMV told him he had to be seizure free for a year before he could get one, andup until Mondayhe was. He had another seizure Monday, and cant get any answers as to why. He is a very good friend and I worry about him terribly. With in the last 18 months he's had to deal with finding out his blood sugar was through the roof, which he got under control by changing his diet. having a seizure, losing his job, and now another seizure. Add to that he no longer has insurance.
If everyone could just keep him in your thoughts and prayers, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks guys, he's like a big brother to me. A very closed person, so when he lets a little out I know it's really bothering him. And I don't like to see him like that.

I'll keep him in my thoughts. My bf had 4 seizures last tuesday and they don't know why he had them either. He's 29, I had to call the squad pretty scary seeing someone you love go through that. He has my best wishes.

Barb L, He said the Drs have no clue and because he hasn't had them regularly they probably never would find the cause. I told him I think stress has something to do with it. First seizure losing his job and not knowing what was going to happen. This one his hours got cut and they don't know when they will need him more. Makes it tough to pay bills.

krichardson- he has only had 2 almost a year apart, that's what's strange.
