Hi everyone.

Have you noticed that most seizures or psycotic episodes seem to happen in the Fall? It's due to lack of sunlight.

If you think about it ~ the sun and moon control the tides and other weather conditions and your body consists mostly of water, isn't it only logical that it would effect your body, IE: seizures and bipolar disorder. All my seizures and/or auras have been in the Fall.

I never thought about it to be honest but thinking back, mine seem to happen mostly in Autumn as well. (Except the odd one or two). I have a Bi-Polar sister and I have never thought to look at her mood in correlation with the season... I will investigate!
