2016 Edition of Christmas & Traveling with Epilepsy


I am making my annual trek to my family for Christmas.  In Christmas, Family, & Traveling with Epilepsy, I talked about the preparations that I would make for my trips.

Last year, I was taken to the ER while visiting my family in another state.  I wonder if there is something I can do to prevent a repeat of that incident.

In the past, I brought along a mp3 player (iPod) to listen to meditation / relaxation music.  It helps keep me relaxed during the flight.  However, my mp3 player died, so I will have to try to find an affordable replacement before the flight.

My neurologist bumped up my meds since the incident.  I will need to double check my Medic Alert information to make sure it is correct.  I already have enough medicine to last until January, so that will not be a problem.

I need to call my health insurance company to find out what sort of coverage I will have when traveling out of state.  I changed my insurance since last year.  If something does happen, I hope they will at least pay for some of the ER bill.

Do you have any recommendations for my trip?  What has worked for you when you last traveled?

Depression & the USA Election

I am so depressed over the outcome of my country’s (United States) election (not to the point where I need to start calling in a suicide hotline.) I am having serious thoughts about how this is going to affect my future.

What did the doctor say?

I have been doing the best I can to cope with the fatigue that I mentioned in Breaking out of my Routine. I finally got to see the doctor, but the hardest part was waiting for the results.

Why Am I so Tired?


For some time now, I have felt exhausted frequently, and had little desire to do anything.  It has been difficult for me to get things done.

Breaking Out of my Routine

My mood has taken a turn for the worse lately. It is summer, and the weather is beautiful. I should be out enjoying all that beauty while it lasts. Unfortunately, It is difficult for me to find the ambition.
