Thank you everyone for your kind support. No helmet. It does not fit right and gives me a headache. I came down with a cold last night and that could easily been why I had the seizures. It is a stressor for me.

Turtle, are you wearing your helmet? Please take care of yourself. To make you feel better, I just hit my right knee on the side of the desk. Owie! Taking your pain away and sending some angels to watch over you! Hugs

I just noticed your new discussion. I am sorry you had that seizure and hurt your knees and hit your head. That must be terrifying. Glad to see your post in the AM.

Do they keep you locked in at night? Isn't that contrary to fire regulations? I worry that you won't get out in case of a fire. There's GOT TO BE more than ONE set of keys for the facility.

It really is good to have a service animal to look after because it motivates a person to do things that one might not do otherwise (not sleep all day)

Jem & I are praying for your speedy recovery.

blessings to you! James & Jem

I let the staff know and the cna helped me to my room. She told the one staff person in the next shift to check on me. He knocked on my door some time after 11 pm and I said he could come in. He said he did not have any keys. I do not understand that but I guess they have to pass the keys on from shift to shift and the person before him accidently took the keys home with her.

I hurt really bad today. My knees and back hurt so bad. I just feel like sleeping all day but I cannot do that. I have to be able to take care of Sunny.

turtle i am so sorry that you had a seizure and you hit your head. you need to let your caregivers know that they need to check in on you at night. Best wishes

Please tell your caregivers to check you every night before you go to bed and during the night they should check on you regularly, and hun don't you feel a bit different just before your attacks? because if you do you should learn to recognize that feeling so you can prevent injury by not standing and calling someone to be there with you just in case. Please take care and God bless you, hugs…LISA

Turtle, since you are in an assisted living facilty, do they check you every night, during the night? Have you alerted them as to your problem so they will be extra alert to you? Get better and take care of yourself.

Hi turtle,sorry to hear about your fall. I hope you are not badly hurt. Did you let someone know so they can check during the night? When you hit your head it can be serious. I hope you can rest well and please be careful. I worry about my friends. We
are far away and can't do anything to help you. Hugs
