Welcome to HealingWell. I am 56 years old and was diagnosed with epilepsy about 16 months ago. I was totally lost before I found this forum. Please encourage your son to join us when he gets out of the hospital. Darren, our moderator is a young man with a lot of knowledge about epilepsy. He lives on the other side of the world, so I'm sure he will be checking in later. There are also others like Randy who seem to have experienced a lot themselves with epilepsy.
Please tell your son we look forward to hearing from him and we hope his hospital stay doesn't have to be too long.
Thank you Carla for that warm welcome; I think they might release him today. I'm just waiting for a phone call from the Doctor or my Son. I told him about this chat room and he is all for it. Being a mother of a child (29 yr old Son) with Epilepsy is very hard to cope with at times. I really want to fix it and I find I have no control over it. He is smart, funny, handsome, and talented in so many areas but at the same time he has no job, no girlfriend, and at this time he has no friends. My heart hurts to see him so lonely. He is my oldest child, I have a 27 yr old daughter, a 15 yr old son, and an 11 yr old son who all keep me going even when I want to give up and sulk. Thanks again Carla
