I am not faking it.
I would love to say I am.
I am BETH, and I HAVE EPILEPSY. I am sorry if this bothers you. If this makes YOU uncomfortable. But, this is MY reality. GET OVER IT.
I had my first witnessed grand mal seizure in January 2008 at my plastic surgeon's office, during my pre-plastics consult. I was having seizures prior to that date — but did not understand my symptoms that occur just before a seizure and after — called auras.
I am only understanding it NOW — and I realize that I have had seizure activity since at LEAST 2005-2006 when I hit my lowest weight post gastric bypass surgery. And, YES I think it has something to do with the massive weight loss > brain twitch. I may never know why — but here I am!
At the current stage — I seem to have a seizure DAY that I am AWARE OF every 1.5-2 weeks, with 2-3 events in one day. It seems to follow my hormone pattern. I have complex partial events, and I may be having smaller events that I cannot decipher.
JUST GET OVER IT. It's not your problem.
1 in 100.
