Hello my name is kathy, I am a 45 yr old woman who has been suffering from seizures for the past 6yrs of my life and I struggle everyday. I can't work, I am not able to cook, drive a car or really do anything alone. Because of this disorder I have to be very careful, I don't always know when they are going to happen, they can happen at any time of the day or night I never know and it has put a strain on me and my whole family, it is like I am a kid and have to be babysat all the time so if something happens I have someone always there to take care of me and that is very hard for me but this is something that I have lived with for a long time now. I have been in and out of the neurological departments at numerous hospitals and the doctors still are not able to figure out a cause or any medications that can control the seizures. Since I have been unable to work I have no insurance and can't afford to go to the doctor and get the help that I need, only through the emergency room visits during my worst seizures have I been able to get attention to my disorder. I have filed for disability and I have been denied, so I am trying again but all of this is a very long process, and in the mean time I really need the help of my friends, and anyone who can be there for me, I am not used to asking for help as I was always the one helping others as a certified nursing assistant for 10yrs until I had a Grand mal seizure which has now lead me to near daily uncontrolled seizures which leaves me unable to work. This is very hard for me as I am a very outgoing energetic person who loves to help others, so with that said I hope you all can see the daily struggle I endure with these seizures mentally and physically. I greatly appreciate everyone taking a moment to read about my situation. I thank you very much, Kathy.
