Hi, I'm Sam. 35 and living with partial complex seziures. Currently on 500 mg per day of Keprra and have been seing my Neuro for a year. Have been living with what I called "going funny" when I was ten, since the age of five. Though my dad kept chalking it up to my being sick (i.e. flu) or stress from school.
As an adult I was dismissed as having epliepsy till I had three grand mals, two in front of ER staff. Which had me cheering inside my skull (yesssssss,take that doubters). Anyways I have a darkly twisted sense of humor, that has kept me sane.
Some of my quirky thoughts:
-The next person that asks me "who is the president" (I'm from the States) after I come back from an episode. Is going to get decked. Being a history geek, I always want to give some less known answer (Grover Cleveland).
- No I'm not drunk or on drugs when I black out, actually I am on a drug. But it's not the kind to take to get high.
-Harley lover for life, even if I can only ride a trike (3 wheel). My friends dad said he'd nickname mine "twitchy trike".
-Just because I sleep in mega shifts (7-9 hours) at a time, dosen't make me lazy. A man needs his sleep!
-This is only one part of who I am, not the main focus.
-No you can't catch epliepsy from being around me. It isn't cooties and this isn't second grade.
-(after being asked had I found Jesus, once I came back). Sorry, didn't know he was missing.
Thanks for giving me a place to post.
