Molly I agree with both sides.allthough I no longer have seizures I did have them for years.I remember one seizure that I had that once I came out of it I just cracked up laughing at my situation.I was standing at the toilet doing what men do standing at the toilet.when I came to I was laying in the bath tub with my wife trying to make me comfortable.bet at laughed for 10 minutes.If I didn't find humor in myself I would have gone nuts.
Seizures themselves are not a laughing matter but you have to make the best of a bad situation when you can.
A little background on me for those that do not know me. first diagnosed with epilepsy when I was 19 after having a grand mal siezure while taking my entrance exam for the Army in 1977."they decided they didn't want me after that".I realized I had been having them for at least a year before and didn't realize it.14 years later i was having an average of 7 a day and could not leave the house by myself .I was one of the lucky ones.Doctors were able to finally find exactly where they were coming from and I had surgery to remove right temporal lobe in June 1992.have not had a seizure since.I think back know and wander how I made it through and realize alot of it had to do with my sense of humor.my grandson has Tuberous sclerosis and has seizures.when he gets older I will help him out anyway I can and hope his sense of humor is good too.
seems like everytime I make my mark somebody always paints the wall
