Force 7

I've been feeling 'iffy', as it were, for quite some time. I dismissed this as depression and nothing to take into consideration; sure Will took me into hospital and I discharged myself, but I figured a big fuss over nothing.
I've been having a lot of memories which forced into perspective a lot of my previous memories, and it now emerges that the bipolar disorder with which I have been diagnosed, has fabricated many of my memories and traumatic events.
Today I went to the neurologist (a condition of my discharged AMA) and he told me that legally I cannot drive for one year as they think I have epilepsy. I have to have more tests to see if they can confirm that my fainting is actually seizures; and thus epilepsy.

NO DRIVING

FOR A YEAR?!

YEAH-FUCKING-RIGHT

Hi Dana

Nah they're pretty sure that because I've been on these meds for so long my body's used to them and wouldn't do this to me... Grr

But still, tests and scans may prove them wrong!

Popping over to yours now.

what a bummer Niki - hopefully they wil find out exactly what is going on.. and why.. and if they can stop them from happening...
do you drive in Hull? A year is a long time....whats the public transport like?

Hi Katie, thanks for dropping by.
Yeah I do drive in Hull...or at least I did! My Guernsey reg plate gets a lot of looks!
The transport is okay - if a little expensive compared to the rock!

guernsey regs always get a lot of looks - I always liked it :)for a couple of reasons...!
pleased if public transport will be ok to get by on for a while...reminds me I haven't used the buses often here - stuck out in the sticks!!! but guests used to tell me it was good..
