Hello everyone.

Obviously I'm new here and I thought I'd better say 'hello' rather than just jumping into topics willy-nilly.

I'm twenty-nine and first had what my doctor called 'nervous episodes' when I was eight. Adolescence consisted of intensified and increased frequency of seizures, for which I used a variety of drugs, some legal - many more not so.

Things peaked in my mid-twenties when I was using whatever came to hand to control my wonky brain and had to go into a rehabilitation centre, where I finally got some decent neurological assessment, alongside all the other stuff.

Now I'm at the stage where I can hold down a job (just) and am clean, sober and trying out whatever the doctor gives me in an effort to stay seizure-free.

So yeah, that's me. Hope to talk to some of you soon.

Hey Overproof

Welcome to the site. Here's that coffee Meetz was talking about :cheers: Enjoy it while checking this place out.

I was born with my seizures, sometimes they get worse, sometimes they get better but they're always there. You might be interested in checking out the list of alternative treatments http://www.coping-with-epilepsy.com/index.php?p=alternative-treatments. Do a little research on them & see if there's one that you feel might meet your needs.

Overproof - Welcome
So glad you decided to turn your life around. There is much you can do to be proactive in your health.
I have found nutrition to make the most improvement in my daughters seizure control.
We have also worked with vitamin and mineral supplements for brain and body health. Including neurofeedback has helped to gain brain stability.
My daughter is med free and doing so much better than when she was on medication, by following the alternative therapies.
