I can well believe it blue hun. My stepdad was epileptic and used to have severe facial muscle spasms during them. His jaw would bolt forward out of joint and his forhead swelled to near neanderthal proportions and while it always went away it scared us so badly. He lives alone now but still hates this thing he percieves as an abnormality in him. Thats so silly i could throttle him we love him to bits and he raised me from a baby but i know how it can get you down. HUGS x

I've had my epilepsy since age 15. I was in the swimming pool when I had my first seizure. The wall of pool was on my left & hit my head above my ear. Boy did I get a big bump! I think I got my Epilepsy from my Cerebral Palsy which I was born with. But when I hit my head as time went on I had trouble with my hearing. Now I wear a hearing aid. Still take my meds for the seizures.

Not to get off the subject of Epilepsy. Well with CP you can have it mild to very bad. I got lucky it was on my left side so I'm able to do alot for myself still. On the other hand I have friends that drive their wheelchairs with head control not the joy stick. Some need to be feed, dressed,etc. When I'm at home I don't need to stay in my chair unless I use the tilt. We do have a Center for our people to work in to make alittle extra money.
