Dbab is right. Chronic illness most always brings deprssion. Even with a good attitude, the tole on our bodies from dealing with chronic illness can delplete the "feel good" chemicals in our brain. Thus there can be a real physical need for anti-depressants. I hope your doc is able to find the right med or combination of meds to help you. The therapy can be a great help too. Just looking at things a little differently can also put everything into better perspective. I hope you'll keep us posted on how you are doing.
Healing Well also has an epilepsy forum. I bet they could benefit from things you have learned and I'm sure they have a lot of things to share as well.
Keep us posted!!
