Hi folks. Has anyone with dissociative seizures found that their eyesight is being affected? Up until 2 years ago my eyesight was fine. Then I suddenly needed glasses for reading. Nothing too serious and I just put it down to my age. But now I am beginning to feel that the detoriation is faster that just simple aging. It's still not horrific and only when I read but even the small letters are causing me to get out the magnofaction glass.
Sorry about the spelling. I had a really bad seizure yesterday and am finding my usual word recall/spelling difficulties after the seizure. But the word recall and spelling are not only after a seizure now. . Those symptoms are now with me permentally. Are people finding that too?
PS : managed a 6.5 mile run today. I'm not going to give up my running. I train on my own (running club wouldn't have me back). I ended up in hospital recently because I had a seizure while running and injured my head and face. But I'm trying to keep to a normal life as much as I can. I love running and until the seizures started have entered many competitions and have beat people half my age. So hey run, fall down, run, etc. Won't let it scare me - it just bloody hurts. But then I have quite a few tattoos so what the hell to falling on my head. I live about 25 miles from Edinburgh and am heading down to Reading in August to get another tattoo down by a real expert in the type of tattooing I want - he's won loads of competitions inside and outside the UK. He reckons that my tattoo will take 8 hours. Beat that FND.
