Re: why epilepsy people become angry always

if you are referring to someone who has displayed anger type behavior it may be due to a combination of factors such as med side effects, frustration, worry, fatigue, etc.

Re: why epilepsy people become angry always

I don't know if you mean generally or when they have seizures. If you mean after the seizure think about it the person wakes up doesn't know what happened. I have two daughters who have epilepsy and it has changed their lives dramatically. It is not easy for the person with epilepsy or the parents of the epilepsy patient. When they come out of the seizure their brain is trying to come back. You should explain the comment you made better than I maybe could answer it better.

Re: why epilepsy people become angry always

There is a long list of things associated with epilepsy and the world in general that leads to problems that cause frustration.

1.) A lot of medications used for epilepsy have neurological and emotional side effects that mess with the bran in ways that you can only imagine. This can lead to moments of extreme anger from small issues.

2.) Not very many people in the world know very much about epilepsy and tend to jump to a lot of false assumptions about it. For example a lot of people assume that all types of epilepsy has seizures triggered by strobe lights. In truth there are many types of epilepsy that is not triggered by strobe lights.

3.) Driving limits. If your life consist of repeatedly loosing your license then getting it back the repeat over and over it gets annoying. it interferes with the ability to make plans and schedual things.

To some it up it is mostly because of how it effects daily everyday life and creates problems that epileptics have to deal with that normal every day people without epilepsy would never imagine having to deal with. Please keep in mind this is only based on my opinion of life growing up with epilepsy. Some people might disagree.

Re: why epilepsy people become angry always

Hi,
I just like to say hello to all you people as I am a new member to this site and have epilepsy.
My veiw on angry is that medicine that you take it's side effect can cause you a lot of emonitional feeling, as I have a problem in controling my feeling when I am angry due to fit and when I worry when I am feeling a fit is coming on.

Hi Andrea,
I am happy to receive your reply, I have 1 to 5 fits in a day or 1 a week has my Complex piation is not controlled and the medicine I take I read and it does say that I can have mood swings or anger to anxiety feelings.Anyway I have a lot of stress from my family and I have not worked for 18 years because of fits in school and when I finish my GCSE 20 years ago.I Believe people do not know how epilepsy effects a child and a adult.

Kind Regards
Mr.Dar

Re: why epilepsy people become angry always

I know that I have trouble dealing with people, mostly kids around 10 or so.

I will yell at them in the stores, I recently went to a movie with my dad, we went to see a kids movie (even though I'm 33) and I ended up telling the little kid that was sitting behind me to be quiet.

I'll also complain about things at resturants, stores, movies (maybe I should stop going to those!) and other places. If it makes me mad I act on it. Usually it just comes out before I even realize I'm saying it. This makes my family mad and I usually get a lecture afterwards.

I am on Tegratal, Lamictal and Depacote (I know I problay spelled those wrong) and I also have a VNS implant.

I posted about this in another thread so it's kinda good to know I'm not the only one. I'm going to ask my neuro about this at my next appt.

Hi--You made me laugh--I am an "epilepsy" people. I guess I get mad because I have to keep repeating myself, because nobody seems to get what I am trying to tell them--how's that?

Talking Re: why epilepsy people become angry always

I tend to agree wholeheartedly about the frustration that we are not allowed to feel--I mean, wasn't I told to get in touch with my feelings years ago? My, My.. So instead we're all supposed to walk around like the Stepford Wives or whatever because they really don't know how to deal with this and those of us are living with this nonsense actually know more about our situations than....and on and on....
