i found this forum yesterday when trying to find info on epilepsy. i must say it seems like a good place! i suppose this is where i should introduce myself. i'm a bit (understatement of the year) sad/worried/nervous/ashamed/angry because it seems like i had a seizure on friday, for the first time in 10 years. so this is why i need to get some info on epilepsy and i need to accept the fact that i've got it (back). it started in 1996 and i got tegretol in 1997. no seizures or seizure-like thingies since 1999 so in 2006 my doctor suggested we try to remove the medicine. from dec 06/jan 07 i started experiencing some things that was new to me, still do. so because of that i booked an apppointment for a check up. more to rule out epilepsy. but this was before the seizure on friday. the good thing is that i've got an appointment in 2 weeks time. don't want to bore you with too much information just yet! /tabbycat - 37 y.o. in sweden.
