I'm not sure I really fit in with you guys, but I thought I would join anyway. I have only myoclonic epilepsy (basically single spasms, though they can happen in succession, but you stay conscious), and while I sure that sounds minor compared to what people with more serious conditions go through, it's beginning to have a real impact on my life.
I've gone through periods where my symptoms have all but disappeared, but then they come back again, and the patterns are tied in closely with stress. I just don't know what to do or say when I have these spasms that come on out of nowhere. My job now has me meeting with more clients and I'm afraid I'll have one in the middle of a presentation or something. I've had very limitted success with medication in the past.
So, I guess I'm just looking for ideas and support, and to see how other Mom's cope.
