Goblin's QA

Hi all!

1 Have you got Epilepsy?
Yes i have Epilepsy,
2 When were you first diagnosed?
I had my first Tonic-clonic seizure in 1999, aged 27
3 What type of Epilepsy do you have?
My doctors are still looking into which type of Epilepsy i have, at first it was due to having Intra-cranial hypertension ( fluid on the brain), but since that has cleared i've had more seizures.
4 What medication do you currently take?
I am currently taking 100mg lamictal twice aday.
5 Any other info you want to share?
I have only had Epilepsy for four years, within those years i have had three tonic-clonic seizures & now have partial seizures, when i had my first seizure i was really scared, but i have 2 young children that keep me brave, and i know i have to be strong for my family and myself, in fact having Epilepsy has made me a stronger person.
