You did not mention much about talking with your doctor. This is something you should ask him/her. Talk to them until you feel comfortable, ask questions. That is what they are their for. To inform you, give you advice. Then when you are ready, you make the choice.
Hello, I have a 4 year old daughter who has non-convulsive status epilepticus. It is from a stroke she had at birth. It is in her occipital lobe. They are considering occipital lobe resection. I keep looking stuff up on this procedure and it keeps telling me it's rare, but that is about it. Does anyone know of or have had this done? PLEASE I am terrified and would like any information.
I started having seizures at six in ages 12 to 16 I had 8 seizures throughout the rest of my life I had 5 seizures and two of them were when I had three week old baby they said it was from hormone changes .
Hi everyone! I have a soon to be 13 year old boy. He has had epilepsy since he was 14 months old. Does anyone have any experience with an increase in seizures during puberty? My son is having TC's again and we believe along with his Neuro that it's due to puberty. Also, thank you to Kari Lynne Brauer for your post about raising up teenagers!! ")
I applaud both of you ladies,
Raising up teenagers is hard work. One thing I learned as my husband and I raised up our 3 kids is no matter how much they fight and resist, they are testing you. They are looking for boundaries, trying to find structure. They will fight you every step of the way. There will be yelling and screaming. Talk to your friends and well respected people in your church. Seek wisdom from those who have raised their kids. Seek wisdom from your pastor. Sit down with your family, ask them to listen, tell them you just want someone to hear.
Take time to hear out hear out your teen.Let them know you are going to think about.. Come back in a calm manner. If he, she does not like that answer, refuses to respect it, then have a discipline already in mind. A responsibility of some sort. Maybe they do not drive yet. But a friend might need a babysitter. They will have to watch the little kids for an hour or... Maybe they might like kids, so garbage duty or laundry for a week or two... It has to be a responsibility. If it gets worse, then bring in elders, pastor or wise people from the church to council you and your teen. Try your best NOT to get into a screaming match with them. Head to the bathroom to take five for yourself and get reconnected. Then go back out and try again. Remember this all takes time. PRAY,PRAY and PRAY some more. Keep in the WORD of GOD. You both will do well, remember growing up is hard work.
