Epilepsy & Heat

It is so hot!  A heat wave is going through my town, but fortunately the heat itself is not directly affecting my epilepsy.   The only way temperature affects my seizures is through sleep deprivation.  I can’t sleep when it is really hot.  When I get deprived of sleep for days at a time, I have more seizures.

My diet is suffering  because of the current heat wave.  I like to eat ice cream, frozen yogurt, and smoothies when it gets hot.  While frozen yogurt is not so bad for you, smoothies and ice cream tend to have a lot of sugar.
