So, if is official...

My doctor finally told me that it is official.  I have epilepsy.  Fortunately, I have not had anymore seizures, but my most recent EEG did not come back normal.  The good thing is that I am already taking the seizure medication and it seems to be working fine.  The only down side is that it makes me tired, but I am going to try an extended release tablet that may help with tiredness.  The new diagnosis doesn't really change what we are going to do to treat it, it has just made it seem more real.  My new doctor explained that the ADEM that I had a few years ago can actually trigger epilepsy.  So, at least now I have a better understanding of how this developed.  This will take a little getting used to.
