Are There Any People Suffering With Temporal Lobe Epilepsy?

Are There Any People Suffering With Temporal Lobe Epilepsy?

I am currently on lamictal but the dosage is gradually being increased to reduce seizures.Unfortunately the main side effect is insomnia. Any one else had the same symptoms?

Thanks, Randy. I've found that a lot of my toughest experiences have served to make me more empathetic toward others. I love the expression 'the wounded healer'.
I wish you a great day also, and appreciate your response

I don't know if I've already said this as my computer acted up..but I like your answer a lot. By nature I'm anxious and not upbeat so I have to work at it. But it is worth it. I know that if I "suffer" I take other folks down a notch and when i don't I help ofhers to cope which helps me to.. it seems like a circle. When i bring others joy it comes back to me and vice versa. Perhaps that is selfish....I don't mean it to be. It just seems to work that way.
Suffering is no fun.

Hi @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member. I understand that it’s not easy for many to keep positive. We all learn , cope , and live our lives differently. Many people feel that, living with Epilepsy is a curse. I think of it as fate. I was Destined to learn and experience this , by GOD , before entering my body vessel ( the person I am today ) . I can also try and help others who are struggling.

Hope your having a great day

I wouldn’t consider it suffering. But ,yes I do have left Temporal Lobe / Complex Partial Seizures Epilepsy.

Unless I were to get hurt or injured , why would I want to suffer ? I may not live the dream life or able to do what the average person can do, but I can still find positive things in life.

I’m NOT a sufferer, person.in Depression and ect. I a happy, upbeat , positive, and independent ( to an extent ) person.

I Control my Life, NOT Epilepsy..
