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.

New Parents With Epilepsy And Going Back To Work?

New Parents With Epilepsy And Going Back To Work?

Hello. Just wondering if there are any new parents out there with epilepsy and how they managed when going back to work? I'm already worrying about it and I still have 6 months left before I go back. My manager isn't the best and working shifts will kill me off as I'm exhausted already! Also tips to combat the exhaustion would be much appreciated. TIA xx
