Dilantin

Dilantin

I took Dilantin for a few years as a child. I'm not sure why my doctor switched me from Dilantin to Tegretol, but I'm assuming it's because I broke through on it. I really liked it, but I suppose what I'm on now is best for controlling my seizures.

Does Or Has Anyone Ever Felt Embarrassed About Telling Someone About Their Seizures?

Does Or Has Anyone Ever Felt Embarrassed About Telling Someone About Their Seizures?

Or on another note, has anyone ever been a little scared of telling someone you feel like you’re about to have one but end up not? Sometimes I feel like I shouldn’t tell my parents or sister because then they’re going to overreact a little after the feeling went completely away.
