Hi beths mom,
I did not realize beths problems until I saw this msg.. I am hoping I can help you find some answers hon.. I remember when I was young for the longest time I just wanted to do more research on epilepsy.. I have had both good neuro's and bad.. One dr. who I wish I still had told me to live life to it's fullest I can do nothing but thank him for that. I have done alot that people say epileptics can't do.. Since you are a teacher though promise me one thing watch the kids so many children have petit mals that go unseen by anyone. I was called a daydreamer in school by my teachers, it's simply because they didn't have the knowledge to see this in their students as they were not taught the signs of a seizure disorder in young kids. Anyway, bethangel, she has alot more seizures then I do sounds like it's left her where she relys on mom to do alot for her
bless her heart. The first thing I stopped was the cola too and I stopped chocolate as well.. I still have my coffee (shame on me) but I am pretty good most stuff.. I don't drink or do drugs or any of that junk. Theres something I was reading a while back and even ordered a brochure on it. A computer basically that is implanted in your chest (like a pacemaker) and it sends off little shocks through your body I forget what it's called but it sounded real interesting.. I don't want to give you wrong info on it so if you goto epilepsy association of america (i think) something like that.. it will show the device... I'll see if I can find it for you...
