I am male and 79 and have just realised in the past week that I have epilepsy. I’ve had two sleeping and one waking seizures. The first was the most severe and required an emergency hospital admission. The last was a collapse in the open of a few seconds.
I’m waiting for an appointment with a neurologist, and hoping that medication will enable me to lead something like a normal life, but at the moment it’s all rather frightening and confusing. Thank you for providing this forum for sufferers.
