Hey my old CWE friends!!! Love from qtown!


Nakamova, Fedup, CQ, masterjen, Cint, CathyAnn31, Petero, MuayThaiFighter... apologies to anyone I've forgotten, I entirely blame my hippo (what is left of it anyway)

How is everyone?? Thank you all again for the great conversation and support starting in 2011, this forum mentally saved me after learning I needed surgery. Especially to my best E friend and pillar 2ndchances (Mel). Many of you will remember her, she is 5.5 years post-op and completely seizure free, as well as newly married and happy as ever. Thanks to CWE her and I met and went through surg together... it's weird how you join a group one day and it changes your life forever. We've traveled across the country to see each other a number of times, and she made part of her honeymoon in August, all the way from Toronto, to see me.

Hoping you're all as seizure free as possible and life is as good as it can be.

Hugs, Nat.

Hi Qtown

Great to see you back and you are going well
My seizures have been like a roller coaster lol, had an increase this year due to stress mainly at work. So after seeing my neurologist in August I changed my hours at work which has worked. I havenít had a complex partial in the day since July which is huge for me
I see my neurologist again in 2 weeks so be interesting to see what he says

Iím not as active on the forums as I was but I have made some great friends on this forum and an Aussie one I used to go on. This friend also had surgery at the same hospital as me, she has been a great help to me over the years since my surgery. We live on opposite sides of the country so only time we see each other is if we happen to be at the hospital at the same times.

Loving to hear that youíre doing well and hanging in there babe.
My own regularity back on this board has been a-kilter a bit but Iím also transitioning from surgery still, but going from once a month to now a year since surgery and then another one about a month after that one... but yadda yadda yadda itís great to see you back on here in a refreshed manner like so but what can I say I donít know - my love to you as well as to everyone on here

I have some photos of surgery scars if youíd like to see them - my pet staples

You need to know there are not some benefits but a lot of benefits to be had at C.W.E. I for one can see the benefits.
