What happens now?

Peace and light, friends,

So, the doctor says it’s generalized epilepsy. What does that mean? How do I prepare for the next seizure? Is it inevitable, or can I actually prevent them? How does that affect my life? How does that affect my loved ones? These are the questions that I, and thousands of the newly diagnosed, now have to answer, minute by minute, day by day. As I adjust to my new normal, I find that it helps if I get to know it a little better. That’s an even exchange; I get to know epilepsy, and epilepsy gets to know ME.
