Had a slight hitch in my recovery today. I had a seizure this afternoon. Steve was right there with me, and it didn’t last long. It was just unexpected. I was standing at the bathroom sink when I suddenly felt terribly sick to my stomach, started sweating, and started feeling faint. I made it to the chair by the bed, and grabbed my cell phone. Steve was in the living room and I called him to tell him I needed help. He answered the phone, but I never heard him…I was already starting to leave the world of consciousness.
When he came in, I was able to talk some. I told him I felt sick and he got me a cold wash cloth. That’s when I lost consciousness and slumped over. He caught me and laid my head back on the bed so I could breathe better. It didn’t last long.
When I came to, I almost immediately suspected the Robaxin I have been taking. It’s a muscle relaxer, but also a central nervous system depressant. Steve looked it up online, and sure enough – it can cause seizures. My pain meds I take often, so I knew it wasn’t the hydrocodone. He called the doctor and got my meds switched, and called my neurologist to see if I needed to increase my anti-seizure meds.
I slept for 3 hours. Seizures wear me out.
McDonald’s Straightens Up and Fries Right!
The Big Mac attack on family values is finally over! After a five-month boycott, Americans finally got what they ordered-McDonald’s agreement to stop financing the homosexual agenda. Back in May, the fast food giant joined the Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce to the dismay of millions of customers who did not feel served. At the time, company Vice President Richard Ellis refused to back down, even calling conservatives “haters” in a public statement. The American Family Association launched a national campaign to force McDonald’s to eat its words. And eat them, they did! This week, McDonald’s announced that Ellis had resigned from the GLCC. In an email to franchises, the company said, “It is our policy not to be involved in political and social issues. McDonald’s remains neutral on same-sex marriage [and the] ‘homosexual agenda…'” We thank McDonald’s — and those of you who used your buying power to encourage values on the menu and in company policy.
