I'm new here, and would love to meet new people, just like me
I am 27, and have had epilepsy since i was 14.
I have simple partial(sp) and complex partial(cp) siezures...I don't get grand mals( not since i was taking topamax, YEARS ago)
I have a lovig bf who is supportive and caring, and my work(coffee shop) is the same, and it feels nice, although i do get down about
I talk on another site,and thought i would try another one too, and well, am interested in this one
I am unable to get surgery done cause i think he said it's in deep in the core of the brain and that would risk me loosing things like my speach and stuff. My memory is good at times, but also crappy at times too
I get Auras(or 'feelings' i call them) a few times a week, i think. They are when i get this "scared" kinda feeling in the body, and sometimes they turn into a siezure, and i think sometimes they are just the aura(but that still is a tiny siezure anyhow)
I take dilantin, clobazam, and gabapentin. I recently moved from Ontario to Alberta, and have a neurologist appointment in Feburary...so i gotta wait, unless a opening comes up.
I had a few siezures the other day, first while going to work(i got lost while walking) and then a few small ones at work..but i stayed my whole shift(even with coffee burns on my hand) ut i have done worse in the past.
I hope to keep in touch with this site, and even post pics and stuff. As i said, i;m new here, and well, havent really given this site a big look.
I want to make 'E' friends
and maybe even some Canadian, or Alberta buddies
Well, i'm sure i'm gonna like this site
I sure dont feel alone already. I do get down about
it at times, and i am sensitive about
the subject at times...but over the years, i'm
opening up more about
And i;ll be here for you guys too!
