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

Abuse Of Site

Abuse Of Site

Hi, this forum is very important and helpful for those suffering and needing advice. Recently I have noticed people abusing the forum and treating it as a dating site - giving out private email addresses and phone numbers to those that are vulnerable. Please don't abuse the site in this way (I'm not mentioning names but you know who you are).Thank you.

Has anyone had a prolonged aura and you try to "fight off" your seizure because you know its coming?

Does anyone else try to fight the… read more

To the answer of "shutting down" or "taking control" of the seizure coming on, it has worked in some cases. I guess it is very rare I have more than one… 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?

Does Focus And Concentration Cause Seizures?

Does Focus And Concentration Cause Seizures?

Hi everyone. I really hope someone may have a similar experience to me as I'm completely lost.

I had my first tonic clinic seizure a year ago and have had 23 since - I've been diagnosed with TLE but they're still doing tests as Lamictal and keppra aren't working yet.

20 of my seizures have happened at work when I've either been leading a meeting, on a phone call or having a very detailed conversation.

I always have a De ja vu aura before, but I have no idea why it… read more

Okie dokie! I did some research, and asked my cousin (a much older cousin in his 60's who has had TLE for many years) about the deja vu thing. It is a… read more
