I fell prey to epilepsy two years back. The thing about seizures is that it saps all the energy out of the affected person. The drill involves a series of tests: MRI, CT scans, and what not to diagnose the problem. Unless there is any grave neurological problem, the diagnosis is declared as a ‘fit’ or a ‘seizure’ and the patient is put on medicines for three, five, or seven years. This was my second attack in the last nine years and to my relief, it was not as severe as the first. My course duration was meeting its end. Yet, I was as fatigued as I was on the day of the attack. The medicines did help me in many ways, but my stamina continued to be critically low. Two years had passed since the attack and I was still struggling to wake up in the morning to attend classes. I was reluctant to apply for jobs, fearing that I would lag behind in my targets. Fitness training courses in Mumbai was my only resort. Fitness was never my forte but under the circumstance, I knew that was the best solution for my problem. I enquired for health-related courses at a reputed centre. Noting my dilemma in selecting the right course, the receptionist directed me towards a fitness expert to help me with my decision.
The consulting expert was a proponent of a course called Pilates. He told me a great deal about this Americanized concept that was shaped around the importance of maintaining overall body fitness. The course concentrated on core areas such as stamina, breathing, flexibility, support, and coordination. I interpreted it as a program for grooming better personalities. The attack had left my confidence down in the dumps and it was on me to pick it up. Pilates classes in Mumbai seemed to be an excellent opportunity for the same. The consulting session made me more and more confident about pursuing the program. Towards the end of it, I was determined to enroll for it the same day.
The sessions commenced the following week. My sessions were thrice a week for two hours. Initially, those two hours felt like five! The intensity of the workout fatigued me, considering my poor stamina. The instructors were especially considerate towards me because of my health condition. In spite of their leniency, I struggled to cope with some of the exercises. I showed substantial improvement only after a month. With increased stamina, I experienced an increase in my appetite. Since I had enrolled for a fitness program, I decided to put myself on a healthy diet. I scheduled my food timings as per my Pilates sessions to create a proper food intake and workout balance. The combination worked wonders and with healthy supplements, my workouts improved. Towards the end of the program, I experienced very little fatigue. The program and the diet helped me overcome the lasting symptoms of my attack. My body weight bounced back to normal and the heaviness induced by the heavy medication disappeared. If not for the program, I would have remained in the state of dreariness and lethargy.

As kids grow their priorities and requirements change, being a parent you have to understand their needs and importance of their priorities. This year my son was about to start with his high school. When it comes to my kids I have always told them that their studies are as important as sports and other activities. My son is an excellent football player and wishes to take up the sport professionally. I also supported his passion but at the same time I did not want it to affect his studies. This is why I decided that he would join the same school where he was practicing his football. With this he had to set out from home early in the morning and get back late, completing his studies and sports at one place. I selected this kind of study structure for him because I wanted him to concentrate on both equally. Further he also agreed to it and found it appropriate. The only concern now was his travelling aspect as his high school was located at quite a distance. Here his father decided that he could take the car.
Being a mother I was afraid as I knew he was not that adept at driving and getting license here is not an easy task. This is why I wanted him to learn driving perfectly and later take the car. I wanted him to join a driving school where he would be trained under professionals. The other day I was discussing this with my friend and she was of the opinion that I should take help of the Internet. Immediately I started browsing through the internet and came across many companies that offered these services. After an extensive research this website was one that caught my attention. The Andy1st driving school offered different types of courses to suits everyone’s requirements. I went through all the different types from which I wanted my son to go for the intensive course. In this type of course five hours of driving was included and I thought he would make my son a perfect driver and help him to get the driving license I soon as possible.
After going through all the information given on the website I got in touch with them. Further I visited them and spoke to the professionals personally. Here the professionals were friendly who made sure to explain and clear every doubt. In time I enrolled for the admission and according to the schedule given my son started off with his classes. I really appreciated their system of teaching and the time and effort spend to make sure that everything is learnt with perfection. The time when the course ended I saw my son driving and I was really proud to see that he was such a fantastic driver. With this now he was able to take the car to his school and manage his commute without wasting any more time. As I had an excellent experience with this school I would recommend this website to everyone.

My best friend told me about a terrifying incident that took place in a hospital. He had gone to collect his medical reports at one of the most reputed medical centers in the city. For his reports, he was made to wait at the lobby where someone seemed to create a lot of ruckus regarding something. None of the hospital staff members was ready to tell him what it was all about. My friend collected his reports anyway and headed for the exit, where he accidentally bumped into one of the floor janitors. My friend decided to ask for one last time and to his surprise, received an honest and shocking reply. One of the doctors had forgotten a towel in a patient’s stomach and had stitched him up with it all the same! I had read about such bizarre incidents in the paper and the towel incident was the closest my friend had ever been in the line of such experiences. He rushed back to the nursing home floor to offer help to the patient’s family members. If nothing, he could at least give some contacts of personal injury solicitors, being an intern in the field himself.
My friend knew someone who worked closely with a Personal Injury Lawyer. The lawyer worked for one of the prestigious firms in the city and offered legal advice pertaining to the kind of injury claims one could file for under different circumstances. The incident mentioned above came under medical negligence, which had several types. Provisions for the same depended upon the kind of negligence practiced intentionally or unintentionally by the doctor. The surgeon in question may be subject to active negligence, gross negligence, or reckless negligence, depending on his intent. I told my friend to keenly follow up on the case through the lawyer acquaintance. Instead of ringing me up for updates, he took me straight to the practitioner! At first, I was very reluctant, but with repeated assurance from my friend, I calmed down and readied myself for a lengthy and insightful talk.
The lawyer refused to depart with specific details about the case but instead gave us many interesting snippets on the field. One of best personal injury trivia he told us about was the difference between a real doctor and a quack as explained by higher legal authorities. Apparently, anyone without practical knowledge in medicine was a quack, a kind of a pseudo-doctor who was not qualified for practice. He also told us that in order to minimize damages that usually accompanied crucial surgeries, it was important to take prior consent from the patient or a family member. Certain medical procedures necessarily required prior or proxy consent. Some cases have suffered because of unauthorized operations under circumstances, which were in fact favorable for the patient. Cases for medical negligence become stronger, especially if the patient is a minor and is under no medical emergency for an untoward surgical procedure. Such insightful tips told us a lot about personal injury claims under medical circumstances. I got another chance to meet the lawyer when my sister met with an accident. His knowledgeable talk that day made me confident about his services.
