This is my first post for today

Hi Folks! I’ve been in bed about all day. I have not felt well at all. It’s mainly the seizure activity that I have. Most of the time I have an aura; it is the feeling of numbness in my right cheek. However sometimes I smell a strong unpleasant smell of cigarette smoke when there isn’t any for anyone else to smell. I’m not sure why I would have different auras; maybe they come from different parts of the brain? I just don’t know. Maybe someone with complex partial seizures might know about having different auras.

Light doesn’t bother me like it does some people. Soon after I smelled the smoke I said someone is smoking outside. Kim went to look and said No one is out there mom. And by then I was already in a seizure. I couldn’t talk and I just stared ahead and didn’t answer her. She figured out right way I was seizing. This time I kept slapping the desk, not hard but it was repetitive. I remember it more like kind of fuzzy rather than like a sharp memory. I don’t lose consciousness, but I am in an altered state of consciousness.

OreoBrownies123 That sounds a lot like a stroke. But I wouldn't know. I don't get those things. Is there any medication for your condition? I don't know how you deal with that. But I guess we all deal with something. Like me, I deal with diabetes and Keritius. I hope you feel better, get some rest.

That is interesting, I wonder what causes the smell of cigarettes, I don't suffer from seizures, but in the last couple years, out of the blue I would smell smoke.
