I don't know anything about what type of epilepsy I have. I was only told that I'm epileptic. I've always had a learning disability and I (still to this day) cannot comprehend anything and having long term memory loss just makes it worse. Everyone that knows me knows more about me and my life more than I do. I'm 25 now and I can only remember anything negative. I had an eating disorder and was only 69lbs, having more than 3 gran-mal seizers a day and nonstop anxiety attacks all the time. While having to take Care of my mom A lot cause of many suicide attempts. She lost full use of her right hand when she woke up under her bed causing a pinched nerve. And I still get treated like crap from my family when I've done no wrong at all, my twin treats me the worse and I can't handle asl this mental abuse anymore. I have PTSD from a lot of things but the worst one was when I found my big brothers lifeless body on the floor in his bedroom. Its been five years since his death and I cannot get that image off my mind. It caused me to get random numbing in my legs randomly I couldn't walk and hard time breathing. I am also looking for the same advice you want. Feeling numb randomly even through seizures, is making it very difficult to cope with everything that's happened and getting myself together and better. I get no help from family.

I lost the use of my left arm for over 6 months after a bad seizure. My toes and feet are always numb. They tested me for neuropathy it was negative. I just kinda deal with it.

Hi friends. Well sell far today has been interesting, well to me it’s interesting because my life is weird… LOL. It all starts when you have so many dreams you lost count in one night that you totally forget what the dreams were. usually I have two or three dreams, not lastnight.. oh no I had more than that and I just kept remembering waking up and having conversations talking in my sleep and it’s crazy, but at least I don’t turn them into reality anymore. What is my demon in my head doing to me he is a pain in the ass, but at least I’m not having seizures that’s a good thing!! I’m counting down the days I can do this January is almost over if I make it through I will only have one seizure I can do this see the possibilities! And thank God I’m off the Z quill. Bad stuff no matter if it says anti-free drug for sleeping better. Never again will I go through that!

Now I’m just chilling here nothing to do my irobot aka “buddy” is vacuum my whole house for me, so me and my itsy-bitsy are watching TV in the man cave. I’m bored I want to clean, but my house isn’t dirty I have nothing to clean. And If I do anymore Zumba or workouts I am not going to be able to fit in any of my clothes because I’m getting stronger, I’m going to have to go clothes shopping I hate that…This is a bitch.. I keep telling myself the reason you don’t fit in your clothes anymore is because you’re getting fat but really it’s all muscle…lol!😂

Well anyways I hope everyone has a great day and is doing well for themselves. See the possibilities! You can do it!
