I've spent the last three days at a conference for work, including giving a research presentation yesterday. Overall it was really good! I got to see various colleagues and catch up, talk through things with my boss in person for the first time since having the stroke, and generally feel sciencey and kind of dip my paws back in the water again. I'll officially be returning to work next month.
The only frustrating bit was that I (of course) had a seizure during my talk, right as I got to the final slide. I made it through all but the very last bullet point before I just couldn't talk anymore - at their worst, the seizures make the right side of my face go numb and spasm a bit to where my speech slurs and is pretty much useless for a couple minutes. There isn't generally any immediate trigger for the seizures, but they tend to get worse and more frequent when I'm anxious or fatigued, so it didn't help having my talk be on the final day of the conference and the final talk of the session right before lunch. The session chair got up and helped conclude things for me, and I was afterward assured by my boss and colleagues who had turned up for my talk that I had done really well, the talk was clear and well-paced and all. So everything apart from the seizure at the very end still felt pretty good.
I do still have my limits. They may get better or they may be here to stay, but for the most part it was a good experience and a good chance to show myself I can still go do stuff. But it's basically Christmas now so I'm gonna relax and be a lazy git for a while. ^^
