Hi,

I am not a teen myself. But, saw your post. You are not alone. Only those who have e can understand the loss of confidence and the need for more information and understanding that we face.

Sometimes, its ok, sometimes its hard. The only thing we can do is take one day at a time. I am in the same situation and so are many others.

Come back to this site anytime u feel low, i discovered it sometime back only. And it has been a great help  2 me. There are some really great people out here.

Best of luck!

I know how you feel completely.  Everytime I had a seizer, I didn't want to go anywhere or do anything. I even had a seizer on my birthday! It took me a few months to get completely recovered over it. I still can't completely drive or go out as much but I try to. If you want to talk back and forth about it feel free to email me about it.

I don't ever think I will feel like myself ever again.Too many meds, a year or more of memory, loss my family does not know me anymore.I now live life the best way I can.Sometimes taking a walk brings me comfort,I recognize the neighborhood and childhood memories.Who knows what happened during my lapse I can't.

I can't remember what had happened a few days before the seizers. After my second one, it took my parents and a few of my friends  a really long time to get me to remember pieces. After they began to talk to one of the nurses in the ER about the night before, I slowly remembered parts(more like flashs, kind of like a still moment) of what they were talking about. Between everyone, we were able to piece together basically what had happened the day/night before and help the nurse as well as the doctor figure out why I had a seizer.
