In the case of most of us (unless those who suffered brain damage that specifically damage to long-term memory in the inner brain with the hippocampus and memory central command) or are suffering from dementia (easier to get a test now that can show if you have early stages or soon will have do to recent research published earlier this year), then all of your memories (nothing that occurs during a seizure except those seizures like the Simple Partial Seizures that you are completely aware… read more

I have heard in the past from several friends who have tried many others including surgery, implants or non-medication alternative methods. However, I think it would help if those of you who have to share your experience with those are now at the point where they have been told that medication will never allow them to reach a long-term seizure free state.
If Q + A section was better organized, then I would not have to ask this question, but we have a support site, so we have to do what we can… read more
