Hi. This is my first post. Sorry it’s so long. Thank you ahead of time. I have grand mal seizures, but fortunately they are very controlled. I only have a seizure once every 2 years and I have found that I can do any type of exercise I want, but cardio is a trigger so I avoid it. I have heard many people with epilepsy also have learning disabilities. For me it’s visual spatial. Don’t ask me to do geometry or put anything from Ikea together. I’m also a very slow reader and writer, but I attribute that to medicine not learning disabilities. I have an amazing wife and hopefully kids are coming soon. The one big challenge I have has been becoming more extroverted. I have accepted that I am an introvert and there are plenty in the world, but I feel that my epilepsy and/or medicine almost paralyzes me from being social with others. I find excuses not to public speak and having an extroverted wife helps, but also gives me an out because she can speak for me. I also oftentimes prefer being home. I feel like there is a more social person in me that wants to come out, but can’t. I want to know if anyone else has felt this and what you have done.
