Embriderymama- My last post was started by me and finished by my boyfriend. He was diagnosed with epilepsy when her was 15, he is 26 now. I do NOT have seizures but I did want to tell you that many people with epilepsy do "medicinal therapy". Meaning they take medicine everyday for 12 months-24 months. As long as they remain seizure free the entire time, towards the end of the year they begin to taper off the meds. Many people last 5-7 years seizure free. There are some cases where the person never had a seizure again, however most lasted several years without having another. Some people really would rather do that than be on epilepsy medication consistantly, everyday, forever. Side effects for most just get worse over time. With certain medications , if someone was to take them for 15-20 years uninterupted they could become a virtual vegetable. Thats why some choose to do this.
Just remember that you need to be constantly with someone, probably your husband. It may make you feel like a child, but for people, like my boyfriend its worth it. Stay away from pools this summer! :)
either way I hope it all works out for you.
Who the heck are "THEY" and why is everyone asking them these questions?
"THEY" sure do have a lot to say...
