My son did see a psychologist for a few months to work on his anxiety & fears. He is in high school and a competitive swimmer. That helped a lot to get him out of the house & live life again. Lucky for him, his seizures happened at home. His friends know, but others at school don't. Teachers have been very supportive. I believe his therapist really helped. We started that early on with his journey. My advice, go talk about it with a professional. It's too much to sort out on your own. Best- Jennifer

I’ve been looking for the right person to talk to I just haven’t found the right one yet but I’m still looking.

Jennifer, It is great to hear your son is active and has a support group. What type of seizures does he have? What stuck out the most in this message is that he swims competitively, with epilepsy! Swimming is a huge fear of mine. How do y’all manage seizures in order to allow for swimming?
