Can We Have Seizures From Being Over Thinkers?

Can We Have Seizures From Being Over Thinkers?

I Was Told By A Neighbor Who Also Have Seizures And She Told Me That Even Though Im A Good Writer That I Should Stop The Over Thinking And Also Caring Too Much. Has Anyone Ever Been Told That?

with me I have to stay focused on whatever the heck I can to stay focused.. if I get too sleepy or drowsy 🥱 that’s when I’ll zone out and probably end up on the floor.. I think overthinking actually helps me.. as long as I don’t start worrying about stuff.. but no idk really if overthinking is bad.. I try to stay think positive and my mind is going a mile a minute… im not all pacing around or anything… im just all chill sitting at my bar and watching Kenji .. he just woke up from his nap.. I just finished watching the voice… im already thinking how good the performances were 😊.. over positive thinking 🤔 can’t be bad.. how else did great ideas 💡 and inventions become reality if it wasn’t overly thought… the medical field is an extreme achievement.. I heard on “House” last night.. “heart transplant” I know that was just a show but it’s based on reality.. I couldn’t even imagine a heart transplant lol.. figuring that out for the first time took extremely over thinking 🤔.. even know I’m like wtf 😳 ..heart doctors are like “ah it’s easy” … science and astrology took over thinking also.. oh back to doctors.. I just wish they would over think a better solution for seizures lol.. im glad that doctors and social views on seizures aren’t like they were when they barely thought about it.. if we had seizures in the 1800s.. hide lol.. but overthinking led us to today and this long ass text while I’m in the middle of daddy daycare ✌️But yeah just keep it positive, something your folks would be proud of.. im not plotting crimes or murders lol…im just overly thinking my survival 👍🤞 think me luck 🍀 I mean wish me luck 🍀 shit I burnt my eye 👁 with my cigarette 🚬 .. just my luck 🍀 lol jk jk almost though.. lol I need to pay attention

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member this is my thing... i think, over thinking is an broad term. thinking can be anything (including all emotional, from the brain to motor functions and back for the 1st time, and speech in general). over thinking is just thinking in overdrive.
my option is, there is the brain, then thinking and repeated motion, then feeling and emotions and movement, and so on.
that is what i am saying... overthinking epilepsy kinds is to huge because it could be anything.
but yet again, this is my thoughts.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member ... our brains process a thousand of things in less than a sec... if that is not overthinking, i don't know what is. i think it is the stress or worrying about something then anything. but that is my option.

Randy says it best- any high emotion can cause a seizure. My frequent partials are just routine so don't cause stress or depression. To worry bout stress seems to cause more stress.
