It tends to affect most of my personal life. It's quite embarrassing at times, working with a colleague for 3 years and all of a sudden you can't remember something like names. Going to your boss to ask or tell them or tell them something and just stand there because you don't remember. It's frustrating not to mention annoying.
Again, your meds can cause some extreme side affects even memory loss. Talk to your doctor. Depakote is the worst!
Stephanie, mine are called Absence Seizures. I can not know where I am, be extremely confused. Dorothy would know if I were going to have one by what my face and eyes looked like. I have to be near a bathroom. For some reason going helps lessen the seizure if it was minor. A major one could require my sleeping for 3 hours or so.
Lack of enough good sleep, not eating well or enough, and being overheated are all triggers. If I avoid them, they can be avoided. I am doing fairly well, however.
I have never been good with names, but do reconize faces.
Memory issues only one of our big struggles, when it comes to Epilepsy and the meds we’re on.
My seizures are in my memory area of my brain so my memory is bad most the time. I stop driving if you years back because of my seizures but now are use Uber and love it and they know how to get everywhere so I don't have to worry about it because I can never remember how to get places. I forget things all the time and how to do things sometimes so I have to write it down I'm terrible with passwords and that kind of stuff but I have good friends and lots of paper and passwords could be changed so things could be worse hey Jeff give your truck a hug for me. Have a great day
