: Just in case anyone who reads this is discouraged. You can lead a normal life; stay at it until your medications get regulated, and things will get better. I had my first seizure at 20, and after some time, I got medication that suited me. I have now been seizure free almost ten years. So that is 2 seizures in almost 15 years. There is hope!
I have heard many times that my life will one day be back to normal, but i am very anxious about having to take medication
forever to achieve this. My seizures started 18 months ago and i am still coming to terms
with the fact they are happening aat all! It is good to hear that people get on with their lives
but at the moment i cannot see how. I feel that a part of me is always waiting for another attack
and as a result i have now devolped panic and anxiety attacks when i feel 'fitty'.
Thankyou for your words but can you explain how you lived in the beginning?
