I have had Epilepsy my whole life, I am 29 and just now getting treated for it. My grandmother had it too and was still on meds until she died in her 90s. My doctor says its possible to become seizure free first with the meds and then ween off of them and be cured. My grandma was never cured obviously. And my doctor hasn't yet been able to stop my seizures (but that can take years and we've only tried for months) I still have them everyday, the worst ones several times a week. Just a few days ago I had 17 and on and on it was a two day marathon which prompted my doctor to throw in Keppra, he wants to go aggressive now with treatment he said because my seizures are getting so invasive. My brain doesn't function well (if at all) which effects my marriage and my being the best mom I can be. Anyone else feel it hurts their love life? I would love to be cured of course but is it possible? Are any of you guys seizure free? Can you tell me how long it took, what you did, how it changed your life? What are the hardest to treat seizures?
I have absence seizures with secondary generalization
