Your probably looking and saying okay, what does an arcade machine have to do with a CRITICAL problem. Well this thing was located in the main entry way of the bowling alley. I have never had photosensitive (light sensitive) triggered seizures up until Saturday. Drove up and parked maybe 10 feet or so away from it waiting for someone to get the door and then the next thing I remember is staring at Mary, our aide and her helping me get the hell out of there and explaining that I had a seizure. I got pissed big time. I want that machine unplugged and moved. This is the first time I have ever had photosensitive seizures. The seizure lasted 26 seconds according to her and my whole right side started shaking. I lost consciousness and was very confused and tired and unsteady. So tired that to the point I had them drive my chair onto the lift which I never have had to do. They got me on the lift and another seizure hit me which was witnessed by both Mary and Rachel a program director it lasted 10 seconds It was considered a tonic seizure because all my muscles got very tight and i lost consciousness again. I knew I was on the bus but they asked me where we were and I was totally out of it until I quickly looked through my camera frantically trying to rebuild my memory that was completely scrambled. There are still fragments from bowling that are completely gone. On the bus I was also having some confusion because they asked some questions. Not a good event. Very scary for me and them. Official records should be released this week. I will probably transpose what those say onto the blog. What I have here is recollection based off of what they said to me and may not have all the data that the official record will have.
Waking up after 2 hours of sleep after two major seizures
If you know much about seizures you will know that immediately following seizure you enter the post-ictal state (Post seizure) which can consist of confusion and tiredness. I had both and ended up crashing out in my wheelchair upon arriving at home. Falling asleep so heavily resulted in a heap of slobbering on my harness which felt quite good to me. I made a short video that explains why slobber feels good. And also took some photos cause I liked the shiny look! So I took a small batch of pictures as I was waking up.
When the clocks change weird things happen. Cable boxes change on their own, time travel happens, funny useless videos are born. Well okay, not for everyone but in our house a funny useless video was born as the Cable box changed its self. Here is that video.
Everyone loves power. Everyone in a powerchair will know what a battery ‘group’ number is. For those of you who don’t the higher the number the more power is packed into the battery and usually the bigger the battery. theres U1, NF22, Group 24, Group 34, and some larger. But group 34 is pretty much the largest battery you can put into a wheelchair with a relatively normal frame. Well I am surprised that being I am only a 120 pound user I have group 34s in my wheelchair. Usually they are reserved for larger users. But so much for that, I found them in my battery box!
