My GP is almost a friend after decades of appointments. I was at his house for dinner the night before all this PTSD stuff started. He saw my autobiographical play and today he saw me have a seizure; he understands the connection. From him, I got my first practical advice about how to “fight back” against the seizures today. I also got his support for my disinclination to take drugs.
He is going to talk to my psychiatrist tomorrow and I am very happy about that; he is a great advocate. I feel a strong allegiance and that he will help me learn how to live with the seizures. I’ve had two today.
His palpable joy in hearing about how great and seizure free life is here in my home made me feel great. It helps me to not feel guilty about staying here. I am so safe here.
Today I made hazelnut ice cream “cup cakes” that I topped with shaved chocolate.
Werner Hertzog has made a film about the explosion of information and the Internet called Lo and Behold.
