We are a newly diagnosed family with epilepsy. Squirrel (15 years old in 10th grade) was diagnosed 2/23/2010 with complex partial epilepsy.
It has hit her like a ton of bricks… she is going through the whole realm of feelings and fighting to gain some normalcy and some less fear.
This blog (since I can’t really find many blogs out there to help with where we are and I want desperately to help someone else where we are…) is a combination of all of the information I can find on epilepsy… especially as it pertains to “older” individuals since there seems to be more information on very young people with the condition.
We are trying to build a support system and find information… so here we are
mom… dad… squirrel… big brother… and tiny white wired bichon…
