I am 25, almost 26, and was diagnosed three months ago. I have partial seizures that are resisting treatment, my short term memory is disappearing fast, I break down a lot and go into states where I don't move... maybe catatonic? I don't know. I blank out in the middle of conversations, and I get dizzy every time I stand up. For now, I can manage work. If I get it stable, maybe I can get some of my brain back. I am grateful for my brother and boyfriend who take me to work, I am grateful I have not been fired, but I still need places to vent. If you'll have me, then congratulations! You have been chosen to receive my various complaints and expletives!
I am fuzzy brained and have earned the purple ribbon of life!
I am very pleased to meet all of you.
