Personality Changes In Spouse After He Began Having Seizures

Personality Changes In Spouse After He Began Having Seizures

My husband suddenly started having grand mal seizures about 6 years ago completely out of the blue and was diagnosed with epilepsy about 6 months after his first cluster of seizures. He was young (27) fit and healthy and strong as he is a farmer, since the epilepsy began he has changed in almost every way... can anyone else relate?

I started having seizures January 2019 and was so depressed. I came to terms with this. My family have been very supportive. This takes some time to get used to for everybody.
