Does Or Has Anyone Ever Felt Embarrassed About Telling Someone About Their Seizures?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Or on another note, has anyone ever been a little scared of telling someone you feel like you’re about to have one but end up not? Sometimes I feel like I shouldn’t tell my parents or sister because then they’re going to overreact a little after the feeling went completely away.

Medicine Reminder?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I take Levetiracetam and tomapax in the morning and at 6pm. I have my alarm is set for both times but sometimes I don't here the one in the morning or I take it and I'll forget that I did rather it's in the morning or afternoon. What I am asking is how do you keep track or what are you using to make sure you didn't forget?
