... somebody please help me :-(  ive had epilepsy for about one year now. it all started last year when every morning when i wouldnt get enough of sleep i never had seizures.. but i was all over the place jerking around.. i went to the doctor and he sed they were ''mini- seizures'' and put me on lamictal. worked..but not fully i still get it sometimes and i went back and he put me on 6 pills a day instead of 4. ...recently it has been getting worse and worse... however im really embarassed about this problem. yesterday morning i woke up.. and i was a complete wreck. i was jerky and jittery. if i had a glass of water it would jump right out of my hand. i dont want to tell my parents, because im always on new medication and always sick. im 16 years old and now i have a respiratory infection and they had to buy 4 different medicines for me. all this sickness is killing me though. all of my friends go out and party every night and stay up late and then wake up early with no problem. its hard to have to fit in and deal with this inner battle. i just wish i knew how it feels to be normal... does anyone have any advice to help me?? its just so hard to deal with as a teen.. and theres no one i can talk to because no one understands what i am going through right now.

I'd help you if I could but I think you already know you need to talk to your parents and to your doctor.   The only way you can really be helped is for the people helping you to know all the facts.
I'm sorry that you are not able to hang out with you friends like you want to.  I imagine that must be hard for you.  I'm 45 and I just found out I have elipepsy and it's hard for me. 
I'm not sure if my reply helps you cause I really don't know what to say.  It just sounded like you needed someone to listen to you.
Also, It might help you if you take Jennifers suggestion and contact some other teens that can understand what you are experiencing.  We are all given different trials in our lives and it helps to talk to those in the same situation.
Hang in there.  Everything will work out for you.
