Memory
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Can you lose your memory with seizures?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Actually, doing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been a huge improvement in my memory access range and memory recall speed because the biggest blockage was not because of epilepsy or the side… read more

Does Anyone Else Experience Depression With Epilepsy?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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. Growing up I was always the funny… read more

Prolonged Aura With Seizure Cluster
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone had a prolonged aura and you try to "fight off" your seizure because you know its coming? I was at the grocery stote today and i didnt want to fall down and make a big scene so i tried to calmly go to the register and kind of leaned on my boyfriend and seized in line because i couldnt fight it anymore.. it didnt last that long but i was still out of it until we went to the car and i had the rest of the seizure in the cluster
Does anyone else try to fight the seizure thats coming?… read more

I can usually fight off my seizures by taking a nap. I have to be seriously distracted or out of it.

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.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I just have to say to my husband I think I’m about to seize and panick mode sets in
“It’s ok don’t worry I’m here”umm I’m not worried so get off me and let my body do it’s thing then it stops and I… read more

Do You Need A Kick In The Bu** To Get Through A Bad Day? - Sing This!!
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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 those stupid meds
I should have made him list’n to me … read more

Does This Make Anyone Feel Better About Being Open About Your Epilepsy?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

FEEL GOOD STORY. Yesterday a woman I've occasionally collaborated with through work (but barely know) called me to ask a question. After that, she asked me how I am. I haven't spoken with her in a few years, so I told her about my epilepsy. Turns out, she was diagnosed with epilepsy the year before I was! We had a grand old time telling seizure stories, complaining about how people don't understand and minimize our symptoms. All the stuff we do on here, only she didn't seem to know much… read more
