In my blog post “Counting My Absence Seizures,” I talked about my inability to count my absence seizures. I want to be as independent as possible. Once I saved up some money, I wanted to buy the technology to actually start trying this.
I need some advice on the technology part. I have a digital camera that can record videos (max length of video is 25 min) to a memory card. I was hoping to save money and use my current digital camera, but buy a memory card that can store larger videos. Is this possible or is this project going to be more complicated than I thought? If I ask someone at a store, I feel that they will try to get me to spend as much money as possible.
My idea is to occasionally record myself for a length of time doing normal activities at about the same time of the day (such as: 7pm). I could then look at the videos to count my absence seizures. I also want to keep the videos just in case they would be needed at a later time.
