This may seem to be a very odd question but I'm just wondering.
As I wrote in my uhmmm ...thesis...:)....(that is if anyone had the afternoon to read it all!) I started having seizures around age 9 or 10y/o but they weren't diagnosed until in my 20s.
Although I had had one in pharmacy school I frankly just ignored that as some mistake everyone who saw it had made. (yeah....i know....on the ridiculous side there!)
I then worked in pharmacy starting when I was 21y/o and actually had grown up in it working in my dads stores as he's a pharmacist as well. One thing I learned VERY early on was not only to never mention anything about what anyone was taking period.....while at work or not...but that not everyone but most people who had seizures were very private about it. I can't explain it exactly except that as my dad taught me you of course didn't ask anyone if they needed their "??whatever is was" medicine filled but when it came to seizure meds I remember all too well knowing what the person had come in to get a refill on and w/o asking getting this look of helplessness in a way and also a look as if they not only didn't want anyone to know but appreciated the fact noone ever mentioned it. I even had a few people tell me outside work VERY privately that they were so grateful for how we had always handled their seizure meds knowing all was kept a secret. .....this was of course before the patriot act which we never needed anyway.
Once I was clearly diagnosed with seizures and evidently even somewhat before as I didn't want to accept that diagnosis it wasn't so much that anyone knew but more that I became beligerant(sp) for lack of a better term about it. I would constantly come up with different things it could possibly be or what caused it and have NEVER wanted to take any medicine for it ....although yes, I do as by not doing so I would feel I was being very unethical and not doing what was right in that I could hurt someone else possibly.
Is this just me and my experiences and something that's just weird around here or has anyone else come across this???
