In Reply to: STRESS AND EPILEPSY posted by juliana j on August 22, 2000 at 20:30:46:

: Hi. I have had grand mal seizures for 44 years. Over the years, I have fpound that while stress is a factor, getting enough sleep every night is much more important. Indeed, I have held stressful jobs that when I was younger, I would never dreamt of having, having been told to avoid stress. I firmly beleive what is much more important, is how well you adapt to a situation, the attitude you take into a problem, that dermines whether a stressful situation is going to worsen, or trigger the epilesy. Also, anything that decreases one's tolerance or ability deal with stress, illness, for example, will impact upon the epilepsy.
