Hello everyone i am new to this site.
I am 30 years old i had my first seizure when i was 7 years old due to a high fever (febral seizure) anyways i have been seizure free since then. On December 13th 2008 i had a Grand-Mal (Tonic-Clonic) Seizure while my kids and husband and i were on the lake fishing from boats anyways i flipped out of the boat and thank GOD my husband wass there he saved me from drowning and called 911 he knew what was happening to me because my father had epilepsy also and in 1999 he died from a grand mal seizure he had every kind of seizure known to man. I feel so alone in my world anymore i sometimes wish that my dad was still here i now know how he felt his whole life the loneliness and strange feelings, i wish i had him to talk to and ask questions to him but at the same time i am glad he never knew i developed epilepsy now he would have blammed himself. Anyways i would love to have someone to talk to about some things i go through now in life i always feel like an idiot anymore when i cant say what i want to say even when i know how i just get stuck it feels like just like writting this now i had to ask my husband what a high fever seizure was called and he looked at me funny cause i was the one who taught him what it was a febral seizure anyways thats what i am talking about i feel like an idiot. I just need people who understand and let me know what you think i think maybe i am having speach arrest seizure's and this happens almost everyday now!! I am on Keppra 1500MG twice daily so 3000MG daily and still have this happen to me. Im lost at what to do i really dont want my dose upped again. I did however switched from Keppra name brand to the generic because my neurologist forgot to put on my prescription that i needed the name brand so my insurance kicked it back so i have been taking the generic for about 3 months now so maybe thats why who knows please someone help me and just be there for me so i dont feel so lost anymore.
