Hopefully a moderator or mentor will be along who is better qualified to answer this question than I am.
I see you’re following the Epilepsy thread so I was curious if you in fact had the condition. If so I was wondering if you would be willing to share some of the details you have been experiencing since epilepsy is such a personalized condition and how numerous people may have the same specific diagnosis yet they may all exhibit different symptoms. Doctors are good at explaining the basics of epilepsy but their information is usually very generalized. I think more personalized information is more beneficial to more people. Mayo Clinic Connect offers us this opportunity. I believe the most important thing we can do is get as much information of our own personal experiences out there so others may learn or relate so they know they aren’t alone. When I developed epilepsy forums and even support groups weren’t available. So if you could share some information it could be very valuable to others like, what age did you develop epilepsy, what type of Epilepsy do you have (diagnosis), type/s of seizures, medications that helped as well as ones that didn’t, diagnostic tests, do you suffer the usual side effects of drowsiness, memory issues, aphasia etc or have you ever been a victim of discrimination or victimized from the vicious stigmas that are all to common in our society. There is a separate discussion on stigma, here is a link if you care to share any experiences; https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/stigma/
I read all your posts some about anxiety and if in fact you have seizures, stress and anxiety are major triggers so if you have those issues and I know this will be much easier to say but those issues need to be controlled as much as possible to help any possible seizure disorder.
I’m sorry I seem to have gone off on a tangent again sometimes I start and just can’t stop and still could go on and on but I will spare you that.
You take good care of yourself and I wish you only the best and by the way you have a beautiful country from the tiny bit of it that I saw I’ve been to Vancouver where I took a cruise and spent time in Victoria with friends who live there. In fact the day after I arrived is when the World Trade Center tragedy occurred. My next visit will be to the Lake Louise area. I understand it’s an exceptionally beautiful area.
Hope to hear from you,
