Yes, I thought this was generally informative. It was put in simple terms for "newbies", which is good. The only thing I would add would be a link to find out more details about specific types of seizures. That may have been in there & I overlooked it. But I like how the slideshow explained how the brain runs on electrical impulses & those misfires are what result in seizures - a very simple explanation. I'm glad you provided it since so many have questions with their first seizure. This will help.
You & Phylis aren't the only ones with posting problems. I've had delays or posts that never showed up at all before as well.
And Kath, I hope you find a good doctor. There is nothing more frustrating than a doctor who just keeps increasing the one medicine you are on. It seems to me you need a different AED, but that is up to your new doctor to decide. I wish the best for you.
Just a further comment about epilepsy.com diary - there is a bit of work to it. You have to enter your seizure & medical history & meds, any allergies, etc. When you want to print it out, that takes a little work as well because when you print your diary data, it doesn't print your notes - that is done with a separate printing. Personally, I copy & paste both reports to a word processor, then tweak them so that all the information - seizure activity & notes - are on the same row. It may seem cmplicated the first time, but after that it's a breeze. So if anyone needs help on this, I'm more than happy to help. SheliaView Thread
