How do we feel happy

I often feel sad and depressed living with JME. I'm nervous and have constant anxiety that I will have a seizure in my sleep. Also I used to be 130 points 2 years ago when I was diagnosed. Now I'm 18 and 147 pounds not knowing if I should increase my dose of meds because I have gained weight. Also I have constant leg weakness. How does everyone keep going. 

Our Mission

The mission of the Epilepsy Foundation is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.
