How To Adjust From A Country Life To An Apartment Life? I Recently Moved To Tunkhannock Pa. Do You Think My Two Seizures Are From Stress?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My oldest sister Courtney decided to kick me and my father out. I'm now the only one woman again just by cooking and cleaning up the place. Ever since we moved to the apartment I only had two minor seizures.

The change can be worth it long-term. Make yourself small goals. I found that lists help and cross off what is done. Also, have your father help with somethings can help too. This can make a difference. I moved out last July and I have been setting goals and getting things done. It can be done. One step at a time.

I can believe the move could cause a stress seizure. I had to help move my mom from her ranch farmhouse to a retirement apartment and I was worried that the stress might cause a seizure.

SueElvins Quite agree seizures not from stress but from epilepsy. Any high emotion excites the brain so if epileptic may cause a seizure. To best control is by our meds like any medical issue is. Ease mind bout by focusing on your own type how meds can help control it too.

Every person reacts differently. I lived in the middle of nowhere then moved to another state into a suburb area for a job. The only person I knew was the room mate I was living with. Yes I was slightly nervous about going into a new area but was also ready for the new job offer as it was opening my horizons. I loved the area I moved into as the community welcomed me with open arms then showed me many options needed to answer my questions from health to daily living.

I still had seizures every so often but they were not due to stress they were because of my condition. I was directed to a wonderful epilepsy neurologist when moving out to this area so everything could be managed for me and I could begin care with this medical doctor since epilepsy is a large factor. Once I met with this specialist I felt very comfortable and knew all would be well for my care.

The best suggestion I can offer to you is take things one step at a time after you have moved into the new location. Just as I had moved into the new location, I began looking up information on the Internet of resources that were needed and taking notes *names, address, phone numbers* then contacting them for the soonest appointment. Have patience while doing these steps but also think positive as you can and will get through it for your benefit!

Best of luck to you!
