Should I Continue Seeking Treatment From An Epilepsy Level 4 Center?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Do Any Of You Have Events From Your More Distant Past Completely Missing From Your Memory? .
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Since having my first several seizures a I've realized that there are gaps in my memory of single events going back maybe 15 years. I'm very sad when my husband or friends are talking about an event from the past and then ask me if I remember: when we went there... what we did ... etc. Sometimes I recall SOME of the event after discussing and getting a few details about it.

There are also events from the same time span that I DO recall
