Hi Melissa, my name is Brian. Thanks for accepting my friend request! How's everything been going? What type of seizures do you have and how long have you had them? I have partial complex seizures and have had them since the second grade, I'm 22 now. I hope to hear back soon. Hope all is well and God bless!
