ATTENTION Other Mothers

My daughter and I have been working on a book about her twenty-plus-year journey with epilepsy. It has stories about her life and "mama" advice from me. We need some input at this point. We need "Other Mothers" to let us know if what we have done is useful. Could you please pop in on our blog and read some stories and comment on them? We want this to be right before it goes to print.

Seizure momma, I have hung on

Seizure momma, I have hung on your blog posts the last couple weeks. My daughter has struggled with absence seiures since third grade, we are now in 5 th grade and her epilepsy has shape shifted into full blown TonicClonic, myclonic and partial episodes. we have been inpatient for weeks and her meds are not working, her rescue meds wont help either and she seems so lost in her own head. I just want to know we will find her in there somewhere someday again. I am so scared, i had no ide this beast could rear its head in this way. Im terrified, constantly, even inpatient at childrens that she is just simply lost. Your blog has offered comfort, thank you for that. I appreciate your honesty.
