Dealing with Epilepsy

  • Posted on May 13, 2010 at 8:46 pm

I have finally come to the realization that there is nothing wrong with letting people know that I do have epilepsy.  I just hope that me writing some of the things that I have been through will help even one person see that they are not alone and that things can get better. I know it is a long long road and it is very hard to cope and deal with. When I was stuck not able to move for so long and had to rely on my cousin for everything. He had my apartment set up for me so that I had my medication right by me and I could reach it . I think I have been tried on every medication that is out there for epilepsy and seizures. The doctor had even mentioned to me about going to a short term facility and that thought scared the heck out of me. I was very very determined on getting back on my feet and getting some sort of my life back. And now a year later I am up mobile and able to go out. I have to be very careful of firetrucks, ambulances , police cars , hazard lights even on a car. I had a rough time at Christmas due to the Christmas lights and even some television shows. I find that one show that really bothers my epilepsy is Entertainment Tonight. I cant sit in the dark and watch television but am so lucky compared to what I was a year ago. A year ago I existed and today I am living again.

I hope to have other people post their stories about epilepsy as well as any questions that anyone may have.

    It is so good to see my cousin (‘lil Lisa) back on top again. The hell she has been through I would never wish on anyone. She has shown extreme courage and strength to fight for what she wants. I can only hope that one day Epilepsy will be cured or at the very least a better way to manage it comes about.

    Lisa you are a true inspiration to anyone dealing with health issues, not just epilepsy. I am happy to see you striving for more and wanting to help others cope.

    Lots of Love
    David
