Dealing with Anxiety

Hi All,

I am 22 years old and I have Left Temporal Lobe epilepsy. My seizures are all grand mal seizures. Thanks to keppra, I am a year and a few months free from seizures. 

Although I have gone over a year free from seizures, I still deal with anxiety everyday. Although I do deal with anxiety throughout the day, it worse at night. This is because most of my seizures are nocturnal. I exercise and eat a healthy diet which does help but not enough. If anyone has any advice, tips, or really anything helpful regarding anxiety, I would love to hear it. 

Also, I should mention that I'd like to try stay away from anxiety medication just because I know it is only a temporary fix. However, if anxiety medication has helped any of you reading this, please leave a comment on your experience with it, good or bad.

Thank you kindly,

Dani
