    Shirley, you sound thou like your a fighter. Concentrate on the good days and make them good as this helps people with endorphins etc. The bodies natural defences.

    I hope  you can get teh balance right for the future and wish you and your family all the best

    Hi Shirley, I am so sorry to hear about your daughter... I understand how you feel, my mother was also epileptic and had many, many fits... she had an aura sometimes beforehand which was a help.. I know that they can be very frightening to see, as there is nothing you can do... has she got a good specialist giving her care, is there no way that they can cut the amount of seizures that she is having... it also must be difficult for her to accept., and I can only just imagine as a parent ( of four children ) how sad and the heartbreak you must feel when you can't make it better..

    You must look after yourself as well as supporting your daughter, I truly hope that your much loved daughter improves health wise, and that you find some peace of mind... very sincere wishes to you and your family.

    Take care. DEIRDRE xx

    Hi Shirley, I forgot to ask, are your daughter's sugar levels under control, ? Unfortunately my mum's were always high and caused her many health problems on top of her illnesses.. I am sure that the treatment has improved for both illnesses nowadays, I wish you well once more, warmest wishes to you, Deirdre xx
