    Hi Ruth,

    My philosophy professor in college said, "Changing our perception of the past changes our perception of the present."

    Belinda, I am sorry if I sound like I am angry with you. I really am not angry.
    We all have to depend on others.

    Ruth let's have some

    :Ruth,
    Why do you get so angry when I don't agree with you?
    I may not have children but I have been a child and I know what it's like to have to depend on others. I know how families can keep things from you because there scared you might seize.Belinda

    Belinda, you are right. I was diagnosed at 6 years of age. I don't know if it is harder being diagnosed as an adult or not. I never drove a car or ever got a job. I tried though. I know you don't drive like I don't drive. I never thought of you as an idiot. You are smart and very intelligent.

    I really think of you as a good friend and a Positive Thinker. That is what I think of you now.

    I disagree that it is harder as an adult being diagnosed. you don't know what I went through as a child growing up with epilepsy.I can give support know problem but your saying I don't count because I didn't drive or the jobs. i did work a few jobs and I just wouldn't let my seizures stop me , is that so bad? I refused to drive like some people do who are also having seizures does that make me an idiot? I see what you really think of me now. Belinda

About Me

  • About Ruth
    Seizure Background
    My seizure history started at 6 years old. I am now 71. I started with partials and Dilantin. I am allergic to Dilantin and almost died from my allergic reaction. When I was a Junior in High School, I stood up to answer a question and I blacked out. I was never told what happened. I think that is when I had my first T/C. When I was 20 years old, I had my first tonic-clonic seizures, 3 in a row. When the year 1979 happened, I had my first STATUTS EPILEPTICUS. I also went in a coma. In 1985, I had my second STATUS EPILEPTICUS. I am still alive.
    Treatments
    Keppra, clonazepam, Lamictal, Neurontin, Primidone and Lorazepam. I also use Chamomile tea and SleepyTime Tea to relax me.
    Location
    California
    Interests
    I am a Jehovah's Witness. I read the Bible and do research and meditation, prayer and my meetings.
