adding to my last post

there are PLENTY of illnesses that are manageable.   So what if you actually developed epilepsy?  NEVER MIND that you are afraid of it.  That is not material.  So what would really happen??  Would your world end?  What would ACTUALLY happen?

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

I don't know what would happen if I got epilepsy I don't know how I would cope. I am struggling to understand what your telling me. One post your saying it is unusual to develop it in adulthood now your saying what if I develop it. It's quite a contradiction. I do appreciate your advice don't get me wrong however everyone has a fear of something and mine happens to be epilepsy which I cannot shrug out of my mind almost 24/7. The reason this has intensified is because of these weird deja vu and other sensations that mimic partial seizures that I have had over the last couple of years. A clean MRI and EEG does not rule out epilepsy as well.

frankly----  logic isn't working with you.  telling you that you do not have epilepsy doesn't work. Asking you to explain LOGICAL reasons why you would develop seizures at your age was  not answered.   having state of the art testing doesn't work.  You have decided that it missed your seizures.   bottom line::  a person having dejavu for a YEAR and that person not having a FULL blown seizure (along with state of the art testing) should be enough to convince a rational mind that the sensations he is feeling is NOT a precursor to developing seizures.  This means all of what you talk about is just plain old ordinary fear.  All of your thinking is filtered through your fear.  Which makes your conclusions HIGHLY unreliable

while I know this is hard to see:  the reason why these sensations are intensifying is because they scare you.  Which in turn gives you your proof that your theory that mri and eeg and neuro  are wrong.  it proves why you are going to have epilepsy soon.   



SOOOOO  Now I am taking a different approach.... one psychologists often take.....  I am suggesting that you contemplate ACTUALLY having what you fear.   Truth is you would be upset, at first.  then you would see a neurologist regularly and you would swallow some anti-seizure pills.  The BIG thing would be likely not being able to drive--at least for a while.  States have rules on how long a person has to be seizure free to be able to drive again.  After making that adjustment, you would go on and live your life LIKE other epileptic people do.     Epilepsy is not a life ender.

I know it seeks like I am such hard work just looking at someone having seizure looks so horrendous for the person having it, the shaking the screaming the injuries and possible choking looks so painful that besides with what you must see when it happens. Worst thing is wgat feeling or what do you see before you go into a seizure scares me even more. I know no one knows in life what can happen with anyone but its scary at 33 years old to just develop it, and as you say it would be strange to not have had a seizure with all my deja vu but I have read lots of sites online that say people can have deja vu for years then it can change into worse seizures

Most epileptics on meds are well controlled.  they don't have many seizures.  I know not really anything you want to hear....

if you look stuff up, in your state of mind, you are going to find scary stuff.  and, sorry, but that is your fault for doing that.


I am not trying to sound mean, but I am going to bow out of posting on your threads anymore.   It seems you are just not ready or are unable to hear anything other than what your fears are telling you.   Hopefully, in a couple of years when you still haven't had a seizure, your fear of seizures will go away.

good luck and be well.
