of everyone affected by epilepsy

Martin paine

In 1996 I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I didn't know much about epilepsy Butler quickly I tried many tablets to try and control my seizures eventually it was under control and by 1999 I was back driving leading a normal life . After getting in gauged and buy my first house in October 2003 the epilepsy came back. This time I was not able to control it and spent the next eight years living with seizures. In 2007 I went to hospital for neurology and neuro surgery and after 4 1/2 years of tests going to Belgium I finally had temporary lobe brain surgery. He's calls to issues like depression and anxiety which I live with today but so far have not had a seizure in 5 1/2 years and I am leading a happy life With my wife and two children.
