i wish my seizures were caused by chewing gum. But is from a brain injury as a child.

These have given me learning disabilities, ridicule and mockery, people thinking i am making excuses, and I find out there are natural treatments but no local doctor has them and I have to go to college for a long time so it will be a while before i can move to get natural ways. I live in Arizona in the USA and it would be great if there were natural doctors in my area, but I have to go out of the way to get their special treatments like even the ketogenic diet.

it sucks having to deal with this for almost 30 years. because of this, I cannot even drive very long distances....

Hi there and Welcome to HealingWell,

I am sorry to hear of the nature of your epilepsy. I can imagine it must be very frustrating for you knowing that it is something that you are not going to grow out of. Are you able to get some control via convential meds? Are there any natural treatments that can be followed over the internet? I would have thought that basic stuff like diets can be managed online.

I hope you find the support you want on HealingWell. We are a really friendly bunch here.

Jian,

I am sorry to hear what you had to go through during your childhood.  It sounds like it has made you a strong, determined young adult.  I do know it has to be frustrating, but it doesn't sound like anyone is going to keep you from getting a college degree.

Take care!

Carla

true human can stop me from getting my degree. But as far as diets, the only one recognized supposedly in the USA is the ketogenic diet which must be prescribed. however there are natural doctors but not in my vicinity and I really shouldn't drive too far with my Epilepsy. If you know of natural ways that are online, please feel free to post a link for me. thanks

HI there Bryan and Welcome to HealingWell! yeah
 
Im sorry to hear that you cannot drive at the moment. I read from your other posts that you have absences and take Lamictal. Do you have many seizures still?  Where abouts are you from? I am 22 yrs old from the UK and used to drive but had to give up my licence so I know a thing or two about driving laws in the UK so I may be able to help you there.
 
I hope you find the support you are looking for here. It is a quiet forum but we are all very friendly and I dont bite... very often! lol
 
Take Care
