I’m a 67 year old guy & joined Mayo Clinic Connect to learn and when possible contribute to the Epilepsy section. I have had Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy for 53 years mostlyTonic Clonic and Convulsive Status Epilepticus Seizures and have had thousands of seizures. I enjoy swimming but not in the ocean since being swept into the Pacific. God saw fit to rescue me and help me back to shore. Now I’m into safer activities like TV and friends and enjoying connect BUT NOT COOKING!!!!!!!
