Paranoia After Seizure

Paranoia After Seizure

I would like to ask a question. When you have a seizure, does anyone else get really paranoid about anything? For me, it is my bills. After a seizure I forget I have paid my monthly bills and within a day or so after a seizure, I will repay one or two. Twice recently I have paid my rent twice, thankfully, I have a very understanding owner who calls and checks on me to see if I want her to return the check.

I have to mark everything on a calendar anymore because of the same thing, we come too half the time not knowing where we are clouded and paranoid, and more times then not clueless of our surroundings. So my best advice is to make sure you mark everything down... Hope this helps

Perhaps mark on a calendar when the bills are due, and then tick as soon as you've paid them. Then, after a seizure you can easily see which have been paid and which have not. i'm sorry if this seems like an obvious answer, i'm not sure what your current technique is. This is how i have to do all my important things as my memory is awful!

Make a spreadsheet! Keep a sticky note somewhere you never forget to go, by the toothbrush for example to remind yourself to look at it. Paranoia is familiar territory for me. I am paranoid that I am lied to consistently and that my memories are not mine but those that others have placed there, even people that I have trusted. The truth is, paranoia makes no rational sense so to avoid it, eliminate it! :)
