Paranoia After Seizure
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I would like to ask a question. When you have a seizure, does anyone else get really paranoid about anything? For me, it is my bills. After a seizure I forget I have paid my monthly bills and within a day or so after a seizure, I will repay one or two. Twice recently I have paid my rent twice, thankfully, I have a very understanding owner who calls and checks on me to see if I want her to return the check.

Perhaps mark on a calendar when the bills are due, and then tick as soon as you've paid them. Then, after a seizure you can easily see which have been paid and which have not. i'm sorry if this seems like an obvious answer, i'm not sure what your current technique is. This is how i have to do all my important things as my memory is awful!

It's typical for memory to be a major problem after a seizure. In all of the research I've done this is mentioned frequently. Clearly there's nothing to be embarrassed about. Also, memory loss is more or less severe depending on what part of your brain the seizure starts in.
I think the memory problems are one of the MOST frustrating symptoms of Epilepsy.
