Re: hi im new
I am 27. I had my first seizure when I was less than a year old on my mom's first mothers day which was also her birthday. I have had one or two times where I have spent long time periods without a seizure. It makes you feel wonderful. You can drive, you feel more relaxed, overall it makes you feel like you are in control of your own life. Then when a seizure comes it makes you feel like all that is taken away from you. To me having my lisence taken away cause of a seizure feels like Im being punished even though I know I didn't do anything wrong.
We are epileptic. We know in our heart that it is a disease that there is no cure for. But if we stick together until that hopeful day comes when there is a cure I am sure we will be able to get through it.
About a week ago I spilled my frustration out in something I typed on this bulletin board, read it. http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=238198
I know it sounds very depressing but I always know there is a light at the end of the tunnel and the key to living with epilepsy is finding new ways to control it and prevent it from controlling us
