I guess I need to vent or and stop pretending this isn't real. I feel like I'm walking around with a fake smile on that everyone can see through. My daughter is getting married; the only problem is that her husband to be "doesn't want to be in the same room with me." He feels I'm not appropriate. He says that me epileptic episodes are embarrassing or that I'm faking them. My daughter agree's with him. Ever since she told me I have been getting exceedingly more depressed. I feeling my whole life & I am futile. He doesn’t want me at their wedding or part of their lives. No medicine is going to fix this. I feel so lost; I did everything for my children; I feel like a freak. I can't stop crying how can I fix this.

Soory to hear of what you are going through. I think the best is for you to remain away from them for a while, so that your daughter will will realize that you are not faking an illness. It is useless trying to explain anything to them. It will only generate more haughtiness from their part.
Is there anyone else who might be of help? Someone you can talk to in the family?

Hi Crozier, this is Kitt and I am so sorry that you are going through this. Is there a way you could bring your daughter to the Drs. visit with you and she could ask questions about your dx? Sometimes when they hear it straight from the Dr. they understand better.I know how painful this must be for you. Gentle Hugs to you and let us be your family here. We all care about you.
