: My brother has seizures on average of one a week. He is 46 and currently living with our aging mother. The family wants to help him locate a new residence. How likely is it that he could live independently? He is a smoker as well. The family is afraid for him to live independently in case he has a seizure while smoking or cooking. Experience and wisdom most greatly appreciated!
: Thank you and bless all of you!
My best friend has had epilepsy for about a year now she's 38. She is alone alot and I worry about her too. I call her every day, go see her as much as I can but I have three kids and it's not easy she lives 30 minute away. I don't know what to do either I just pray she is okay most of the time.She lives with her boyfriend but he is at work all day. Most of the time she sleeps, she hardly eats and has lost alot of weight, 5'7' at 87lbs. she looks really bad and doesn't seem to want to try to help herself very much. I just pray. Good luck with your brother. I know how you feel. annie
