We may have epilepsy, my child does too... but we are just as human as others. There are many answers and more to come. Cannot always blame epilepsy for everything, sometimes there is more tied in to the genes--such as my daughter. She has anxiety from my mother's side, ADHD from her biological father...so I just didn't get it when she was placed on an IEP in school---as for I was passing just fine, and on a much strong med... and my seizures weren't controlled. But we have to realize there is a reason for everything-and to know He gives us strength. My heightened time is prior that time of the month... I will have 10 more seizures than normal. So women out there... might want to log theirs.
