I have been diagnosed with CPS. I don't see anyplace else on Healing Well where I can talk to others about my seizures. Can I be here and chat with you all please? I feel lousy and need the support and promise to give love in return. Today I was crying because I feel I have been left with half a brain. I used to be so incredibly bright and clever. Now I mispell nearly every word and can't remember where I was 3 seconds ago.
Happy Wednesday, everyone and thank you.

Vent away all you like, that's what we're here for.

There are great people on this board with lots of experiences to share. Hopefully you can get something positive out of our past experiences.



Diagnosed with epilepsy and ulcerative colitis in 1979,
Been on meds ever since.

Hi Sunflower-  Welcome to HW.  Sorry about your diagnosis.  It is a real bummer and everyone here can identify with you.  There are many here that visit on a regular basis and you will find a lot of support.  Feel free to come and join in anytime.  Glenda :-)

Sunflower, I am so sorry this DX has hit you so hard. There are people here who have been through this. I am mom to two teens with epilepsy. My son has complex partials as well. Chat is not often hitting well, I think times are not working for some. You can post and talk here, however.....

Hang in there. SO sorry you have so much going on. remember there are many people who live with Epilepsy and can do well....

Hi Sunflower, ((Hugs))  Sometimes I actually feel fortunate to have had sz's since childhood cause I think it would be devastating to have Epilepsy dropped in your lap as an adult.  I can say that time will heal this wound for sure.  Epilepsy will become just part of who you are and won't have to consume your life.  Part of what makes having E so difficult is the meds and if one isn't working for you then definitely speak with your Dr.  There are a wealth of meds out there and each will have a somewhat different side effect for each person.  There are many people on this board that were diagnosed as adults that can relate to your pain so you're definitely in the right spot.  I hope you're feeling better today.

Welcome! It is hard dealing with this, I am like you, same dx, and had my 1st and only 6 weeks ago. A lot to learn and adjust to. It is nice having a meeting place to learn, ask questions and get support. I think you will feel like you belong here in getting the support you want.
