I also have a form of Autism and don't know if this is related to that or epilepsy or non-epileptic seizures(NES). But I've got to talk to someone. My NES started up again a few months ago. Now they are almost stopped again. If seizures occur more at times of stress, does that autimatically mean they are NES? Mine started when I was denying that I have Autism and continued when I stopped the denial. I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome (a form of high functioning Autism) last April. But I think I'm ok with having it now. Actually I am relieved to have the diagnosis since I've always known I get tired just from being around people.
Has anyone else ever had seizures less just before a doctor's appointment? This happened to someone on another group, to her daughter really. And it happens to me sometimes. A week or so before the appointment, they will lessen.
I don't understand why I am so tired. This has been happening for months now. It didn't alwaus but what has changed? My medicine is the same. How tired I am doesn't seem to relate to if I had seizures, NES or not on that day. I just want no stimuli around me. I can lay there with no noise, lights, etc for hours. But I've been depressed. I grew up with emotional problems and I don't think I have them now. But I'm both physically and emotionally tired more easily than before.
I hope you don't mind being practiced on. And I don't know how many of you understand that needing more quiet time than before and than other people does not mean I'm depressed. Can anyone here tell me how to explain that to a doctor? I don't want him to automattically put me on anti-depressants or anti-anxiety pills.
