Hi Phyllis, Sorry I haven't responded to your most recent note. We have been busy moving 1 daughter and 1 moved in with us as she in unemployed now. Things have been hectic but we are blessed. I like your pictures. I need to get some more online here. Please pray for our daugher, Holly to get a job if you will. Let me know if you have any specific prayer request. I have to go because I am volunteering at church and can't be online very long. Bless you.

Phyllis, No, my dr. has never said anything about me getting that violent that i would want to kill someone or even harm someone. if you are feeling that way i suggest you get another opinion. that doesnt sound normal to me. i know people get stronger during a grand mal seizure but dont have feelings of killing someone or locking themselves in a room which is dangerous. i really feel you need another opinion and maybe a medicine change (but i am no expert). maybe you should put a forum question for everyone's opinion on here about that problem you face, to get other's opinions and list your meds too. i am concerned about you.

yeah I thought it was bad having them in school (they started in 6th grade), but it turns out that having them infront of my kids hurts worst. I fell on an old furnce grill and got 3rd degree burns on 15% of my body. They didn't have my meds ready so I was afew hours late on them. My daughter was 11 months old and she had gone down for a nap for the first time (she was always stuck on me) in a long time. I layed her down and walked out of the room and had it. I know God was watching out for us that day. We were home alone and if I had her in my arms...it would have been worst. She had to learn by the time she was 2 what Epilepsy was, what to do... all of it. And she did. I always hoped she never wopuld have to use it but she did when she was 3. She saved me that day and hated the color blue after it. It hurts the heart to have your child tell you how scared she was that I wasn't going to wake up. That was my last one for 5 and half years. I figured they were done with.. that I "grew out" of them like some. It was wishfull thinking. I had one the day before Christmas eve in front of both of my daughters (7 and 2). My family/friends have set "rules" for me... 1. I can't lock doors 2.NO funny noises. I can't get a job b/c nobody will hire me b/c of them. They don't say that but you know thats why. Its put a lot of stress on my relationship. Its been hard. They has been times when I have had to count pennies out for a pill, gone without eating to have my meds, I'm in debt so bad from having to go to the ER so much for a dose of meds. It drives me crazy that Epilepsy is one of the oldest recorded disorders and I feel its but one the back burner. Not saying other things aren't important its that they should be closer to a cure by now.

I never know when mine are coming on so I can't really do that. If I "don't feel right in my head", I call it that funny feeling I sit...but I don't always have one when I feel like that. It hurts my pride having to ask people...!
