Hello everybody, I hope you all are doing well. I've been ep

Hello everybody, I hope you all are doing well. I've been epileptic my entire life, and have been looking for more opportunities to reach out for support. A little bit about my story, I was diagnosed with Epilepsy when I was just one year old. My doctor at the time was convinced that I had "grown out of it" and that it was just Children's Epilepsy. I am 20 years old now, and was just re-diagnosed with epilepsy 3 years ago. I had focal seizures throughout all the years of my life, but since my doctor had informed my parents and I that it wasn't seizures anymore, we didn't believe they were. I called them "music-head" at the time because i had no idea how to explain the feeling, other than everything around me seemed like it was following a rhythm. Just a few weeks ago, I suffered my first Grand Mal seizure while I was driving on the highway. I passed out and seized completely, lost all control of myself. I hit a couple of cars, then crashed into the centre meridian. I was living a pretty good life. Finally got my car, had college all planned out, and everything seemed pretty great.. I was driving one second, then I wake up in a hospital bed the next. My life changed completely, and I had/have no idea why. I can't drive for another 6 months, and finding daily transportation to school/work/wherever is extremely difficult. Don't take a minute in your life for granted. We'll get through these hard times.

I’m so sorry all that is happening to you! I know you can find support here. I was also in a car accident but and lost my wife. I hope you find the right medical help for your seizures. Sometimes life is so unfair. Hang in there and get well soon.

Mark: I took magnesium and it completely cured my partials. It is helping my EP by re-conditioning my brain. If you read about the brain and how it is always healing itself, adding magnesium will let the brain overcome the disability and begin curing itself. If I was allowed to put inks here I would send them. Do your research and keep in touch.
