Hello Everyone! I have had complex partial seizures for as long as I can remember but did not know what they were and was not diagnosed until 2001 when I got into a car accident. Since then I have gotten into 3 more (nothing to injure myself or anyone else believe it or not)! Just some trees!!! Aside from that I also have Diabetes and hyperthyroidism which might have something to do with it all but who knows.
But anyways, since then I have been thru 2 doctors and at least 5 different meds. Right now I am on 200mg of Topamax a day and 400mg of Lamictal. And even at these doses I am still having sparatic seizures. NOTHING IS WORKING!
SO...here is my situation at the moment...I am 24 years old...getting married April 2, 2005. I cannot drive which has been putting my life in hell - Having to inconvience my parents and my fiance everytime I needed to go somewhere. And when I WANTED to go somewhere I couldn't. I have been isolated in my house. The question of where am I going to work when I get married is still an unsolved mystery b/c I do not have my retired father to escort me around.
I just do not have an answer to anything....Sorry I just had to vent there for a minute.
For those of you who do not drive how do you do it? I cannot do anything!! Where my house is there really is no public transportation. I need to get these seizures killed! Is there anyone out there who had success with anything?
