Gav, I have done and felt just like you. Maybe not the same meds and combos but I feel like it's a common experience with whom have to take AED's and have seizures. At one point, after trying many different meds, I told my neuro one day that I can't take it anymore. I told him, I beg of you to help me because the only thing that seems better than the drugs is a magnum 44 with a bullet in my head. He asked me to see the psychiatrist that works in combo with his seizure patients, I took some antidepressants for a while but I still could not find an acceptance that I didn't know who I really was(this was a very spiritual challenge for me) and I hated having to take even more drugs. I am still battling with things in my life that occur and are not my choice. I am not religous but I am and have found from my life that I am very spiritual. A christain friend gave me this prayer many years ago and it has alot of truth to it...
God grant me the serenty to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Also, my advice would be that you find someone whom you can talk to about you! whether being a professional or your mother or someone whom you feel the closest to.
Fear controls alot of people, and not letting yourself accept things can keep you in a unhappy state. Remember acceptance...isn't a preference, it's merely allowing yourself to acknowlege that something you may not prefer still exists within your life. Bless you and I wish you happiness!
