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

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.

Had grand mal seizure last night, after I came too. I needed help to bathroom & got sick for 20 minutes or so. I have never had that happen before.
Some of my triggers for seizures i know of are stress, lack of sleep, miss med, comming off of adrenaline and certain pitch noises.
What are some of yours? How do you avoid or prepare/deal with it.

What I am asking is how do you keep track or what are you using to make sure you didn't forget?
I'm wanting to travel to South Africa but my parents are refusing me to go due to my epilepsy. Any tips for flying long distance?
My life has completely changed and hasn't been the same after I had my first seizure, obviously, but sometimes I feel like my memory has worsened. I had mentioned it to my mom but she didn't really think of it as a problem she saw it more like I'm trying to convince myself of something that's isn't true and that it's all in my head. To be honest it makes me sad because I try to think back at memories when I was in elementary school and they're not… read more
