Only one memory episode. Also am getting older and do have to be aware of mood. Can fly into rage mode. Sign for me danger of seizure approaching. Don't think it affects my sleeping at this time.

Definitely have had memory problems, since the damage took place. With change in medications, the memory problems have altered enough to be taking medication for memory. Of course with age and further medication changes, my memory does continue to drive me up-a-wall, at times.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member, please mention the 'rage mode' to one or more professional. I was going into 'suicide thoughts' until taken off of a generic medication. Just the seizure can put you in a dangerous situation. A rage can make it more dangerous.
Enjoy life and may the Spirit of Life be with you.

Hi Christine Hales, it’s Lee Evans and I have always had a bad memory problem but that’s not due to my epilepsy I think it was due to my hydrocephalus I had when I was a baby or I don’t think it helped in any way,
But don’t worry Christine just do what I do when I go shopping just take a list with you write it down or jot it down somewhere on your phone or whatever which way and take it off as you go along, that’s what I do and that’s why I don’t forget.
Kind regards.
Lee Evans.💁
