Do you need a kick in the bu** to get through a bad day? - Sing this!!

Do you need a kick in the bu** to get through a bad day? - Sing this!!

I revised the lyrics to Gloria Gaynor's classic "I Will Survive". Have fun with it!!

"I WILL SURVIVE EPILEPSY"

At first I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live
With you on my inside
And I spent oh so many nights
Thinking how this was so wrong
But I grew strong
And I learned how to get along
And now you're back
Yes, that’s the case
I just woke up upon the floor
With big ol’ bruises on my face
Doc should have changed… read more

Does anyone else experience depression with epilepsy?

Does anyone else experience depression with epilepsy?

This is my first time posting on a site about my epilepsy, but I feel like I just need to vent to people like me. A little about me: I live in a small town in VA with my mom, dad, and fiancé. I'm turning 25 in a week and I had my first seizure at 17 the morning after my grad party. It was a gran mal and my life just hasn't been the same since. I currently take 350mg Lamictal XR at night before I go to sleep. Some nights I wake up and have bad tremors still.… read more

Medicine reminder?

Medicine reminder?

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?

Hug and Useful

Hug and Useful

Just wanted to make a comment. Now I know I am just as guilty of this social media habit as anyone else. But we are in the habit if we are having bad days or good days by just clicking on the hug or useful icons. When really all of us suffering want someone to talk to or just to know that someone is out there listening and will help in whatever way possible. So to my team and everyone worldwide if you want someone to talk to don't be afraid to ask. Turn 2019 into a year where we can be there for… read more
