    Seizure Background
    Started having seizures April (?) 1994. June 1997 my neurologist in LA, after all the testing they needed to do, officially established seizures in my life caused by brain AVM's. Brain surgery #1, AVM's are now removed but seizures are not. Then came the grand mal seizures, one of which sent me down a full flight of stairs where I was lucky and spent only a couple days in the hospital. After my third grand mal and a day of seven bad partial seizures (ones basically shifting me away to another world from this world, far enough where I would look back not knowing just what I was seeing - 3 to 5 minutes)... they decided to take me in for brain surgery again, (ended to three surgeries in 6 years). Now here in the last 15 years I still have partial seizures but medication is good enough where they are usually not too bad... usually.

    Sad part of it all for me is that I have had brain surgery three times and still get seizures. That and they have taken a large chunk of short term memory away... was told that if I go back for surgery again trying to get rid of seizures, I will almost certainly lose being able to speak (last surgery they felt I would lose speech). I am just happy I still have some memory and can still so-so talk :-)
