| | Help! Trying to overcome self consciousness
I'm a 39yr. old female, with sezuires, I've had them for 36yrs. now. I have always been self conscious due to my sezuires, because while having a gran mal I have been told by many of my docs that if you was to have a gran mal that lasted for more then 15 min. That it could cause the brain fuction to slow down. which I've had many of these more then once, so everytime I'm around other people and there's a conversation going on I feel uneasy to just jump in and give my point of view should I have one. Only because I'm scared I'll say something that dumb. I guess this has alot to do with my knowing that it's harder for me to catch on, and keep up with what's being said. I also have a problem with making eye contact, where this probem started and why is beyond me. I just feel like I'm not up to anyone's standards, because of my sef consciousness. Is there anyone that could give me some advice on how to cure this issue? I hope to hear from you.
