that you are constantly being discouraged? I accept that my dd has epilepsy and may always but I also feel hopeful and positive that it could go the other way. She has been seizure free for almost 2 years (in October). My husband hasn't had a seizure in years and my sister was cured by the ketogenic diet and my friends brother outgrew it so I know it could happen for us. Yet at dds Neurology appt today, the doctor rejected my optimism, telling me we still have a long way to go and she will probably have episodes as she gets bigger. Then I told my mom about it and she took his side and told me to be rational.
It's really getting to me.
I'm not getting my hopes crazy high. Why is it not okay to be optimistic? :'(
