I'm just wondering because I've noticed that as I'm getting older my seizures first came back and with increased activity
I was diagnosed at 7. They called them Petit Mal back then. I had taken a huge number of medications, dosages and combinations. In my early 20s I had taken all then known AEDs. After a lot of tests, I… read more

I'm homeless and have been for the past 10 yrs and have been experiencing horrible things but don't have anyone to talk to that can understand coming from someone that has seizures too. My seizures aren't everyday but effect my everyday life. So I'm hoping to find someone that knows what i mean.
