I'm a basket case of health issues..
I had Viral Meningitis when I was 10, almost died, was in the hospital for two months..had to have a spinal tap..a few months after that I started having seizures as a result of the Meningitis. I was disgnosed with Petite Mal Epilepsy at 11..which was later disgnosed again as Absence Epilepsy and Chronic Epilepsy..My seizures are only nocturnal and only start in my sleep..I still have Epilepsy even though they thought I might grow out of it..I'm 23 now. I've lost count of how many times I've been admitted to the hospital for my seizures..everything from ER trips to staying for a week for a sleep test, having dye inserted in my brain to pin point the seizures, MRIs, CT scans, gallons of blood work, radiation inserted through an IV into my system and brain to pin point the seizures..it never ends.
I also have an Autoimmune Disorder and Autoimmune Utiecaria..I'm basically allergic to myself. All of my body's allergy receptors are always inflamed and my body produces a chemical that hits and attacks my allergy receptors causing an allergic reaction..I've been doing this for 8 months now and we still don't have it under control..I'm seeing two specialists for it now...I have an allergic reaction everyday, some times twice or more a day if stressed. I break out in itchy red spots, my hands swell, and my throat swells..I have to carry an EpiPen with me everywhere..
AND right now I have a fantastically awful ear infection..somehow..(I clean my ears too much)..I had pushed wax into my ear and built up irritating my ear, ruptured my ear drum and caused the infection..Yay me!
Basically I get sick a LOT and have all kind of issues..just right now medicine wise I am on..get ready for this..
