Yea, I had a feeling my original topic thread would end up getting merged into another one. So because of that, along with the names of the categories to choose from i would like to start a topic thread, I must ask, is there some type of section like "Which Category to Post A Topic Thread In for Dummies" in any portion of the CWE ? onder:
I wouldn't worry too much, Bruce.
What I say when posting, is make the best choice you can, and if a mod thinks it needs to be moved we will do so. Using the definitions of the rooms that are posted.
I always have trouble finding a particular thread to add to even when I know it exists. There is no hard fast rule here about beginning a new thread. We make a good attempt to keep the subjects combined so that the topics have more substance, and we are not repeating ourselves. I think the concept works rather well.
So after all these "new, improved, best you ever ate, makes your cheeks glow and your hair grow" words, what am I? What is a simple partial or complex partial or TLE, now? Gosh, guys, I've been doing the BIG E over 40 years! I'm too old to change! :agree::loco:
They seem th leave the negative semantics of the disorder there, don't they? It's almost as if people with epilepsy are still being marginalized.
I agree: more money should be spent on the research & new treatment for seizures rather than the re-naming of the seizures. It IS good, though, that they are now recognizing other abnormal neurologic activity as seizure activity.
While I'm no authority, I don't see why not. Some people refuse to let go of the old names or labels b/c they're familiar with them & that's most likely what drs. learned for their names - with the exception of neurologists.
