Thanksgiving marked my 13th year of being seizure free! I was diagnosed with JME (juvenile myoclynic epilepsy) at age 16. I am however on Topamax 2x daily. But it's worth it. So every thanksgiving I am truly grateful!
I am happy to answer any questions about Epilepsy, as I believe strongly that Epilepsy needs to be spoken about more.
From Our Mailbox:

Hi Epilepsy Team. My daughter in 24 years old and has generalized tonic clonic seizure with no aura or warning.

I am looking into smart watches as an option to monitor/detect seizures - Has anyone heard of this? If so, do any of you have recommendations/advice on the pro and cons of seizure watches?

Do they work? Which brand is the best? Is there anything in particular...

Question From our Mailbox:

My eleven year old son has epilepsy, as well as an anaphylactic allergy to opiates. I want to start a conversation with him about drugs and alcohol, so that when he gets old enough to start thinking about experimenting, he knows to be careful and stay away from them (even more so than my other kids.)

Has anyone that has had any experience with this offer any...

This is my daughter, age 10. She is on the countdown to getting off the anti-seizure medication she's been on since she was 2. When she's had 3 years of clear EEG's, her neurologist will begin tapering her off the meds. (She is on Lamictal and Klonopin) We were 9 months in on her countdown and her EEG from last week came back abnormal. She understandably has a broken...

Never forget.
From Our Mailbox:

My daughter has been seizure free for two years. She is now pregnant with her first baby and even so, she is very anxious about the pregnancy and about the possible effects that epilepsy may have on her baby.

Is there any information she can get or advice from other ladies who have epilepsy that have been pregnant?
Because sometimes we need a little reminder.
November is Epilepsy Awareness Month.

Greg Grunberg has partnered with the Epilepsy Foundation of America to design the #MyEpilepsyHero social media campaign.

This campaign gives people impacted by epilepsy the opportunity to recognize and thank the people who have made a positive difference in their lives (family members, mentors, friends, medical professionals or someone with epilepsy...

Happy Halloween from everyone at #TeamEpilepsy!

3 years seizure free and 32 weeks pregnant with baby #2!

I have been seizure free for 4 years. However, from time to time I get sparkling dots in my field of vision. Does anyone else get these?
Ah, Halloween! The time of year when the weather gets colder, the leaves change color and lots of people are busy planning costumes, haunted hayrides and holiday parties to get into the spooky spirit.

However, individuals with epilepsy may have to make a few considerations to ensure safety during this season. For example those with photosensitive epilepsy may have to skip going to haunted...

Celebrating the Spirit of Halloween Without Seizures


Hi! I'm a 24 year old female and I was diagnosed with myoclonic and absence seizures back in 2014. As of two months ago, I've been convulsing but my latest EEG came out normal.

My doctor has suggested that I may be experiencing non-epileptic seizures. I'm having a little trouble digesting that, because I feel like I'm back at square one. I take Keppra and it took my body...

I just wanted to share! My twins just turned 7 last week. Both were both diagnosed with absence epilepsy shortly before they turned 2. Cate has been seizure free for 5 years as of 10/13. After several medications and a VNS surgery, Clara has been seizure free for 2 months as of 10/7!
