no understanding my mother was evil cow b4 epilepsy started my husband used it as his passport out of work as my carer some joke
Of my family Father, Mother and younger brother all have seen some epileptic activity in their lives. My brother was epileptic till age 3, my mother had several between the ages of 16 and 25 then none after that, my father has absent spells where he is not present at all. not one of them fails to treat me with sympathy and understanding. My wife has had no experience with epilepsy however she is very caring and pursuing a career in the medical industry.
I am in about the best situation in terms of family understanding that i could hope to be in.
