Do You Get More Or Less Nervous Riding With A Certain Person Compared To Another? Or Do You Just Not Let It Bother You ?

Do You Get More Or Less Nervous Riding With A Certain Person Compared To Another? Or Do You Just Not Let It Bother You ?

There are many friends and families, who have driven me to places. Some are fast drivers, some may be cautious, people who easily get road rage. I myself don’t, let any of them get to my nerves ,since I’ve never been in control of driving .

Hi @ RandySherman, I'm sorry to see your VNS hasn't help as it should. Which knowing it can be that way for some of us who have it. When I 1st had it implanted I went through a period where it wasn't much. Went through where the Dr. I saw at the time would strengthen it up to where it really hurt and bothered me going off as often as did. Then he would set it down too low.
I'm now w/ a Dr. who has helped a lot and as a matter of fact will be having another 1 put in due to this 1's age.
As you've spoke it's different for everybody in the case of having Epilepsy.

Hi @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member. GOOD LUCK . I hope your VNS works better for you , than mine. My VNS didn’t help my seizures too well. I was still having the same amount of seizures as I did before the surgery. I was even up at the max for surge power. Once my battery died out, My Dr. and I didn’t bother replacing it. Don’t think it doesn’t work, there are many people with the VNS and it works very well for them.

I have asked a few different questions in the Q+A page. My questions are usually courious type questions. I understand the majority of things about Epilepsy. But I still learn little fact every now and then. I’ve lived with this all my life . I’ve been to Epilepsy Support Groups, and camping event with the Epilepsy Foundation. Between living with Epilepsy and learning through the the support groups , taught me a lot. Learning from the staff and learning from others experiences with their Epilepsy.

But hey, don’t worry about your English . Do your best and we will figure out what your saying. There are many of us who may goof up on what we are trying to get out when typing it in. We may forget a word , spell it wrong, and ect. Many of us have done that.

There’s nothing new for me . My seizure activity are the same . I expect at least one seizure a day , doesn’t mean that will have one. No seizure to 1 seizure is a good day for me . If I have more to where I need my recovery med , then it’s a bad day.

Well take care and have a seizure free day.
