I was born with epilepsy characterized by idiopathic grand mal seizures. because of this and my age (37), i will always be considered high risk with regards to pregnancies. it kinda stresses my family a bit.can you imagine waking up to find your wife convulsing next to you?

anyway, although i know my children will always love and accept me, i worry about the day i will have to tell them about why mommy has scary seizures and what to do when they see me having one.

my daughter is remarkable. during my first pregnancy, she not only survived 8 seizures inside of 10 months but she brushed them off like they were nothing. she is strong, healthy, smart, and totally fearless....

That would be really hard. I'm sure you will know when your children are ready.
