Hello, I'm Lisa and I am a young,single mother with a beautiful daughter, Elizabeth. I joined this group because I have Epilepsy and I have had it since I was diagnosed at 14 years old. At first my seizures were hard to control with my medicine, but the doctors soon switched me to a Tegretol/ Topamax combanation. I have had breakthrough seizures since then but my seizures are pretty much controlled. When I was pregnant though I always had my levels checked and they ran more tests on me than usual. The did more non-stess tests on me than they would normally do since I have Epilepsy. And my doctor also induced my pregnancy since I was considered high risk. But all of that was worth it, because I have a beautiful, healthy 2 year old daughter now. And I live my days, day by day and I always remember to take my medicines because I am not going to risk my health or my daughter. I hope I can find more moms just like me who have epilepsy too because its just hard for me to find other people who have epilepsy also.
