From the beginning, my mother was great, an absolutely amazing advocate. But she is a nurse! She still is wonderful! My husband is great. My step dad has seizures as well, although of a different type, so it is nice to have him to talk to. My biological dad doesn't "get" it. My siblings don't either. My sister seems to think I only have severe anxiety. As if she is the authority on neurological issues. I think my close friends are as symphathetic as they can be. They are very caring, or else, they don't usually make it into our close group of friends. Since my husband is military, it seems that we either move, or as soon as I make friends, they all leave. It's a bummer. I am currenly pouting as all of my friends have left, or are leaving as of May. I am alone! BOO!
