Hi. Im Christine and im originally from NJ but my epilepsy has brought me out to washington state! I moved to tri cities washington in Jan 2005. I have had simple partial seizures since i was 8 and complex partial seizures since i was 12. Ive had them for nearly 22 years now. Ive been on and off assistance in NJ because they wouldn't recognize my disability. Ive applied for social security 4 times in NJ and they denied me. :roll: Now i am here as i had seen an epileptologist who told me to go to THE MAYO CLINIC. theyre in jacksonville, i know, but it was too expensive to move to fl. My sister moved here in 2001 and asked me to move by her as Harborview Medical Center is in Seattle and they are directly related to THE MAYO CLINIC. :shock: Now i am here! I am 34 yrs old and live with my mom AGAIN! I have 2 children my dd is 11 and my ds is 8. They will be going back to school in the fall and i will supplement their education and my family will be able to take care of them while im in seattle, wa.
Ive been on and off meds since 14 when they officially diagnosed me in the hospital. let me stop as I have to copy my medical records for all the docs! take care and thanks for letting me vent. :D

Hi Christine, welcome to the forum. :hello:

Feel free to vent any time. It's tough when the seizures are not controlled. Let us know how it goes with the clinic.
