To me they have decreased but I accidentally don't know if it was the menopause, which I just started not do long ago or if it's that I finally started getting a medication for depression, or loss of hair, because in the past I would get lot's of seizures just letting my hair grow because I do have alot of hair and very thick hair . And I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers šŸ™šŸ™ŒšŸ’•šŸ’œ

I certainly think that hormones have something to do with it. I had a seizure when I was 3 and then not again until I was 52. I was definitely
peri menopausal by then. Periods had started to become a little irregular. Some night sweats. But it wasn't until the last 2 months that I stopped getting it. Hoping it is done. But who knows. It was also a very stressful time and I was drinking caffeine back then.
