Seizure control: I can't seem to get any help

It’s amazing to talk to others that have experienced my situation. I haven’t come across many people in my lifetime that understand epilepsy. My existing doctor has been good at throwing medicine at it for many years now. I don’t expect him to snap his fingers and fix everything but I feel like the effort isn’t there. He might feel like since he’s been dealing with me for so long, there is just nothing else he can do. I understand that but I’ve heard of so many positive stories that I’m not going to settle for a life like this. I want to try my best to get better so I can be there for my son.

Often the best way is to get to the top. Cut through the fog and dust and find the very best authority on a given subject. I have found this to be true not just in medicine but in dealing with all kinds of problems. Of course, it may not be easy to find the best person, but it is easier to do the research (in libraries, on the phone, or on-line, etc.) than to do itby trying one after another that doesn’t solve or at least improve the problem.

Keep a good log, even if you have to spend a lot of your time writing or typing. For me, the more I do one thing the better I'm at it and it starts to take less time. You can always ask for a second opinion. Good luck. mlmcg
