    Intro post

    Simple Partial Seizures, getting a second opinion

    Hi, new to this too! Joined today because I need some support because my anger is too intense at losing my driver's license and the poor treatment by my ex-neurologist. I'm not sure if I'm correctly diagnosed as my experience with the neurologist and his PA has been terrible but that's going to...
