For years, since I was 14, I have suffered from epilepsy. I had my first witnessed siezure in school. I was put on a med that made me drowsy and caused more siezures and then finally when I was 21 I was put on the right med for me. However, because of my epilepsy I was never allowed to drink coffee because of the caffiene and I was never allowed to do anything that might wake me up so to speak. I never had energy at all and wanted so badly to be able to wake up, drink a cup of coffee and work out. I wanted to be able to walk through the day and actually enjoy my life. well, recently, I talked to my doctor who increased my medication ever so slightly and for the first time I am able to do the things normal people do. Its wonderful. I was actually able to work out today for more than fifteen minutes. Without feeling completely fatigued that the next fifteen minutes were agony. I love this new me. It has also helped me to be able to sleep at night so I am not such an insominiac. I love it.

loverbee, isn't it great how a change in medication can do so much for you. It's great that you are finally able to experience all the normal things again. I love the positive energy that you are feeling. Keep it up.

loverbee,

What a wonderful thing to happen to you! I have known many people with epilepsy and even used to work in a medical environment with some people who had epilepsy. They shared about the effects of the medications at times too. Getting the meds adjusted at the right level is so crucial and what a difference!

yes and to think, if my doctor hadn't been in the hospital for a conference the day I was in the emergency room I never would have found him. My epilepsy is not localized to any one part of my brain so I am a very rare breed and he was fascinated by it so he came to talk to me. What a godsend. I am so greatful
