Hi, I just would like to say hello to everyone and briefly introduce myself.  I'm a widow and the mother of 2 wonderful daughters.  I was diagnosed more than 20 yrs. ago with complex partial seizures.  I've taken nearly all prescription meds available for seizures, both alone and in multiple combinations, and now have a VNS implant because no meds were working.  I had been driving, but had a car accident many years ago and suffered a blow to my head, which made my seizures worse. 
Since I had the VNS surgery a few months ago my seizures have decreased in intensity, however the frequency has increased.  Has anyone else experienced this?  I am also suffering an unending cycle of seizures causing stress which causes more seizures. 
I look forward to talking to others who are familiar with how I am feeling and are empathetic/supportive.  Thanks for listening!
