Moods Vs Seizures

Moods Vs Seizures

What puts people in a bad mood that leads to seizures?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

I notice my mood swings when my hormones are off. When my menstrual is about to happen I am very sensitive and moody. I get easily irritated. It's a rollercoaster of emotions. I also get mood swings when I feel at risk of a seizure, if I feel there is a behavior, a person or something that can potentially trigger a seizure I put my guard up and become very defensive. If I get uncomfortable in a situation I go from happy to anxious, then upset. Cannabis is a good mood stabilizer. I am fortunate to be in California so it's legal and I am a regular user for multiple uses, relief and recreationally. 🌿

I hate being alone and thinking about my life before I had epilepsy. That makes me very sad/depressed. Arguing with my ADHD son causes lots of stress in my life to point where I have to stay away from him. Thank God I have a great wife who handles him when I am “hiding”. So....just not having a normal life puts me in a bad/sad mood!

Hi @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member . Right now you may want to try wearing sun glasses, if you plan on you plan on going back to church.

Another thing thing you may want to look into, is ZEISS Z1 Blues lens glasses. I even read that there is contact lenses with a blue tint to help with anyone who have Photosensitivity. You may want to bring it up to your Dr. See what they know.

I was finally able to go back to church last Sunday, and it was awesome! I wore polarized sunglasses and they also made some adjustments to the lighting. I am so grateful @
