I seem to have a cold. Not sure how this will affect me as I haven’t been sick for a very long time. My facial paresthesia has come back and I keep coughing, pretty sure the two are linked. I know that having a cold can be a seizure trigger.

I think I need to rest as much as possible and continue to eat well. I’ve had a rest day today, it’s pretty boring but necessary. If I was otherwise healthy I would just plough on through it but I need to be sensible and look after myself. 

I have reflex epilepsy since I had my brain haemorrhage in April 2013 so if I keep things under control I should be ok.
