I got seperated from my bike

my fixed gear is currently at a fire station.

I was riding home from the bike shop I work at and I had another seizure and passed out.
when i came to I was surrounded by emts and what not.

spent three hours in the hospital for the same information as usual.
"you seem fine, give us money and go home"

My family wants me to give up cycling until the dr's get things sorted out. considering the fact it has been 9 months now with no improvement I didn't take the news very well.

Truly sucks.

Your family is clearly worried about you. That's a gift.

I wish you the best.

Crap, the docs need to get this handled. Hope they do soon, so you and your family won't have to worry.

Well, you obviously can't drive. They don't want you riding a bike. How do the family propose that you get around? Take a taxi everywhere?

I'm really sorry to hear that you aren't getting diagnosed properly. We can't afford to lose you, c0urt!

Yay for getting your bike back! I hope you get those seizures figured out soon, they're bad news.

Court, have you thought of gettng a trike? Less worry about falling off and hurting yourself and you would be closer to the ground if something happened.

I hope you and your DR. can get this figured out soon.

Hmm have you tried surgery? I saw some show where this lady had seizures and she got brain surgery to make it better.

Oh, c0urt... I'm thinking lots of positive thoughts in your direction.

Good luck dude - I hope surgery isn't inevitable and they find some other means of fixing/curing/preventing the seizures...

[humor]...like a frying pan upside the head maybe? Only joking, but it does seem to work if you're a cartoon character. [/humor]
