I also posted this on the depression page.  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.

second post:

Thanks everyone. BF does not believe that you can "forget" time. Part of my seizures is that I say or do things that happen when I appear concious but am actually having a siezure. They warn you that "Your behavior during a temporal lobe seizure may appear to be deliberate to onlookers. People having these types of seizures have been mistaken for being drunk, taking drugs or acting disorderly." Mine also cross over to the better-known grand-mal and petit-mal epilepsies, in which seizures are "generalized" throughout the brain and cause either unconsciousness and gross motor convulsions or brief lapses in awareness. After either I am very tired and sleep. BF has all the cards and I'm just swirling in a depressive state. I have spoken to friends and family but they can't change the way things are. Maybe I should have posted this on epilepsy page, but I feel so hopeless. The thought of not being in my daughters life is overwhelming. Thanks for listening.

Crozier,
 
I am very sorry to hear what is going on in your life.  It will be terrible to not be included in your daughter's wedding.  By the way, welcome to HealingWell.  How long have you had epilepsy?  What medications do you take for epilepsy?
 
Please know that you are always welcome here and that we care about you.
 
Take care!

I am so sorry to hear this. All I can say is people don't understand us. I guess that doesn't help you get thru this, but I do hope your daughter will see the light, you are her mother! Hopefully she will gain knowledge in our disease and learn it is out of your control what happens. Then you can have a loving relationship. Good luck!

I would never try to get between my DD and her father.  My husband does feel torn when her behaviour is rude and nasty toward me.  I am sorry Anvil that your Step father wasn't loving toward you. I hope that he is loving to you now.   It is funny that you mention his BF health, because a member of his family had a very unfortunate set of circumstances and had a very terrible injury.  I offered to help in anyway that they needed. But BF refused. He seems very understanding toward his own family and has tried to manipulate my daughter to distance her from not only me but her brother. Pharmgal, It is hard but I am coming to terms with it. Everyone has been very supportive here and it really does help.  Thanx for all your support.

It sounds to me like your daughter is letting her fiancee control her. It sounds to me as if he is controlling. If she does not let you partake in her own wedding, this is something that she will regret for the rest of her life. I know that it is killing you now, but she will come around if she knows who she really is. If she lets someone else influence her so much then it is something that she will have to deal with. Hang in there! Just take care of yourself. I wouldn't let him push you or her around if it comes down to it. If she is willing to let someone talk her out of inviting her own mother to her wedding, then what other ways is he going to try to control her?
