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. 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.

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.
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.
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?
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?
So there's now a name for a MIGRAINE condition called photofobia. It's not a fear Of anything.
It's migraines and other discomforts from different types of light.
Computer screens, cell phones, bright sunlight, indoor lighting. New LEDs, fluorescent bulbs, even snow.
For me I live like a vampire. I can't stand bright light.
For others they get migraines
For others they get from exposure.
(fluorescents make me nauseous).
A couple causes : something about your eyes - cones and rods.
