First Time Poster....long time reader....

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post here. Some of you may recognize me from other epileptologist/vns boards. The tip off is usually the pic of my big ugly dog.

I was diagnosed with epilepsy in the fall of 2005 when I thought I had "fallen asleep" while driving.

I have complex partial and simple partial seizures. I have never had a grand mal.

I try to keep things upbeat but sometimes I need to vent when I get frustrated.

I live in Maine with my husband, 2 teenagers, 3 dogs, 3 cats, and some fish....not sure how many because they come and go.

I maintain a caringbridge site because it keeps people up to date with what is going on with me and keeps me from having to talk about it all the time. It's also a great place to review past events when I can't remember them clearly.

That's about it.
Hi to the people I haven't met.....and Hi AGAIN to those of you that I know.

Welcome Wendy

I know you and that IS one ugly dog! You need to put that avatar up on my site too. LOL!

Hope you're feeling better today. How do you like Mr. B's site? Pretty cool place, huh?

Hi Wendy, welcome to the forum.

Nice to see you decided to join the party. Make yourself at home here.
New to CWE? I suggest reading the proactive prescription and epilepsy 101 threads. Also check out this chart of alternative epilepsy treatments and this page on EEG Neurofeedback. More great stuff can be found in the list of the best forum threads.

Would you like to help support this forum?

Welcome to CWE. There is no such thing as a BIG ugly dog. Big dogs are so cool. Only those little yapping pretend dogs are ugly.

I'll admit it. I think she is beautiful. I love big blocky dorky dogs.
And BIG she is. She is 143 pounds and could stand to gain another 10.
She's a big baby who is attached to me like velcro.

It is hard on her when I've been in the hospital. She searches for me continually and when she can't find me she cries at the top of the stairs. My husband says it's the most pitiful noise he's ever heard. Poor lonely pupper.
