Epilepsy, One Year Later

BlogHer Spotlight

[Editor's Note: Last Thanksgiving, Andrea started treatments for Epilepsy. It's been a difficult year but she's come through it and has found a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. - Denise]

It was the day before Thanksgiving, late morning, and I was in the doctor’s office with a technician who was removing the wires, then scrubbing my scalp with a substance that would loosen the smelly glue. The smell of acetone was just about overwhelming. After about 45 minutes everything was finished and we headed for home. All I could think about was how good a shower was going to feel when I got there. The doctor called not long after we got home. He was already on vacation but wanted to get in touch right away to talk about the results of my EEG.

Epilepsy. Seizures. Genetic. Medication. Side effects.
