Constantly Worried About Having A Seizure, Is That What Makes You Have More Of Them?

Constantly Worried About Having A Seizure, Is That What Makes You Have More Of Them?

Im just very depressed about having seizures that it really got to the point where Im having everyday or every other day. And their very embarrassing after what everyone tells me what I do while having them. What do you guys do to stop the worrying?

All of the previous things mentioned are great things to do & I'm trying to do self help cbt as well as some journaling & meditation 😊. They seem to help some but it's not easy to not think about things and allow depression or anxiety to get you down. Guess that's just human nature 😣. I understand the inner struggle (spiritual/emotional) and you're in my prayers 😊

Hope you are feeling better, I know it is easier said than done but I also know prayer changes things. I have found a lot out by trying to find what can trigger seizures. If ever you would like to talk let me know and I would give you my number.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member i had a lot of small to large seizures per day. my go to when i am having partials are laughter or singing. something to take my mind out of my seizures. someone said, 'you have 2 choices... to laugh or to cry. i chose to laugh.' i take it as, seizures are there and you will cry about um or laugh about um.

In our situation it seems getting upset snowballs them. Depending how upset depends on number and or duration. That was until meds have changed. I will say that for my daughter they suggested cognative behavior therapy and sensory therapy. It has helped some.
