Really down in the dumps

Well where do I start. Last weekend suffered a seizure which scared the hell out of me. Since then I've been having really bad panic attacks and even had to cancel a night out this weekend. My gp has been really good and given me something to help and some time off work. The witches of east wick ( my management) didn't sound happy when I phoned and told them. I'm off to the lupus clinic tomoz so hopefully they can give me some answers to what's going on. Was feeling ok until last weekend but this has really knocked my confidence, plus other thing going on like my mother in law in hospital really I'll. All seems to come at once. On the plus I have got some good friends who are trying to cheer me up so thanks to them. Hopefully I'll feel a bit better tomoz x

  • Hi Hester. Lupus can cause seizures along with many other symptoms. I've had a few before but when I was really ill and in hospital so that's why this time it's shook me up cause I was feeling well. I'm sure you will be able to find lots of good advice and encouragement on here. Keep well x
