You can tell your neighbors and your husband that the things you say while seizing are not what you really feel. The hostility comes from the part of the brain that's affected, not from your heart.

Don't blame yourself, don't feel guilty, just feel better, soon.

Hi seagull,

Your neighbors and husband need to understand that it's not your fault for what happens during a seizure and they all need to understand temporal lobe epilepsy better.
It's the right temporal lobe that shows the emotions as I'm sure you already know, but I've had seizures similar to yours yrs. ago when I used to hallucinate and nobody in my family every understood it.
Don't be so hard on yourself and carry on just like you would in every day life. Wishing you the best of luck and May God Bless You!

Sue

i have right temporal lobe seizures. When my auras come i try to think of happy and beautiful things. I also hold anything reminding me of God. Anything that distracts my mind from thinking of the fear and pain.
it's embarrassing when people don't know me and that happens in front of them but often times they respond kindly, with empathy, and compassion. That has often been my experience. Hopefully they understand that you are not completely yourself when you have auras and seizures.
