hi, im 30 and diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy Dec '14. I have been in total denial since, i always take my medication but spent 2 weeks ventilated in ICU 3 weeks ago with completely uncontrolled seizures that went on for hours. i have daily brain activity, nothing like it was pre diagnosis, just face tingling, forgetting words or mixing up my own speech. my short term memory and processing what people are saying is awful some days especially since being in ICU. since leaving hospital my left side is weak and slow and sometimes very shaky but i don't know what is further brain damage (as suggested by a neurologist) and what is anything to be concerned about. i don't know where to start with support, i'm struggling to cope with my diagnoses and the everyday effects of brain activity (twitching, poor memory etc). i was doing my master degree but have had to drop out and i haven't worked in over a year. i have a job interview coming up but i know i need to find support.
