Hey everyone. As you can see on my profile a bit about me. I am currently taking Keppra to control my seizures but I am having some horrible side effects; depression, vomiting, nausea, headaches, sleepiness. I went away for a long weekend to Cork and went to see one of my favourite bands in concert to try and lead a normal life and cheer myself up rather than moping about at home. It did cheer me up and I had a really happy weekend..then I came home to wound up parents and I'm back to square one. I haven't been able to keep much food down for about 4 weeks now so I have lost quite a lot of weight. Whilst I was away my brother was telling my parents that he thinks I'm taking recreational drugs!? I couldn't be any more against drugs! I think it threw them a bit and they were questioning it themselves, this has really upset me to think they might have such a low opinion of me. I'm not great at talking face to face, I get stuck with words and get way too emotional lately to speak about things but I want to try and make them understand that the side effects I'm having are serious and really taking their toll on me. Are your family supportive of you? Have you had to explain everything to them?
