Does Anyone Else Have A Problem With Their Filter?

Does Anyone Else Have A Problem With Their Filter?

I'm very sensitive to particular triggers that cause me to become extremely irritable and when I get to that point it's like my mouth overrides my brain and I will react inappropriately by using foul language and being disrespectful. And it doesn't matter who I say these things to. Does anyone else have this problem?

That is your Keppra-rage

It never caused me to use foul language but yes, my anger was a problem while I was on Keppra.

The problem that I have with that is one of my medications. Keppra causes people to get VERY angry and express it. One time, while I was bowling, a guy was making fun of me from behind the bench and I grabbed his shirt in one hand and a bowling ball in the other. I pulled him over the bench and held a 16-pound bowling ball over his face and threatened to shove it up his nose and down his throat. That was before I learned how to calm myself down.

I used to have this problem all my life until i found out that i was epileptic.

Now, I HAVE TO STAY IN A CONSCIOUS STATE OF AWARENESS.
It's helping me Understand my limitations and boundaries .

I've always been full of rage my whole life... until about a month ago when i began took Keppra.

I was warned that Keppra would make me rage more, so i began a dialogue with my therapist regarding the mood swings. She helped me gain the tools to combat my shit.

I have never felt so in control.

Even when i get irritated.

Ive began to think about the my true definition of peace vs chaos, as well as which one i want in my life at that moment. Plus Ive been jotting down positive affirmations that keep me balanced when the bad moments arise.

It's just a start.

It could possibly be both The medication and your brain damage/seizures.
