Hi Mica,
My name is Amanda, I am 34 years old and had my first seizure in March and have had a few since then. I was diagnosed with Epilepsy and my doctors are currently trying to figure out the reason I am having these seizures (as of now may be auto-immune but running more tests to eliminate other things). I too have been overwhelmed with this diagnosis as I have been healthy up to this point in my life. I am not a teacher but I am a vet tech at an animal hospital in MN, so far they have been really supportive. As of now there are a couple rotations that I am unable to work in but things have worked out. It’s just a waiting game for me while I have more tests done. I joined this group because I didnt know anyone else with this condition. It’s nice to know we are not alone. 🙂

Hi Amanda. I’m really glad to hear things with your work are going well and they’re being supportive. (My sister is also a vet, so I have heard stories about how stressful that life can be!) I definitely understand the frustration of the waiting and not having answers — that’s what I’m currently going through. Looking forward to talking to you more about all this.

So nice to hear from you Amanda. I’ve sent you a private message, and look forward to connecting with you.
