Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

I honestly just want somebody to talk to about my TLE so I don’t feel so alone. I just want to talk to someone who understands what I’m going through. I read and read about people who suffer Grand Mals, and absence seizures, and I have had Grand Mals myself. But this Temporal Lobe Epilepsy... it’s its own monster. I know I sound like a broken record to my family because they just don’t understand what it’s like. My sister has bipolar, and she can definitely relate. That’s been nice... but is there anyone else out there that truly knows what I’m going through? Someone who won’t get tired or annoyed when I bring up how I’m feeling? I feel so alone
