Quoting P3RvYmCp3rv:" And I'm sure if weaned off of the meds and they were making a difference she would have her put back on them. I'm sure she isn't that mother that just doesn't give a fuck. "



The thing about my daughter is the meds will help, at first, hen after a few months her seizures start getting more and more often.

she used to have hundreds a day on this one medicine, and they finally switched it and it dropped to about 75 seizures a day, and then they added another one.. and she is around 30 a day, id say 1 or more an hour. SOmetimes she gets clusters with like 4 in a row and then none for a few hours.
every EEG she has ever had has shown seizure activity along with other things like brain slowing and stuff. I feel like it sometiems help, and then stops helping and her seizures increase. obviously if it helped her I would keep her on them. I just want her to be normal. and be able to play with other kids without tehm staring at her and calling her weird becuase she wont talk. im just over it.

people take their normal kids for granted and I would literally give her my life if i knew she could be normal, and have kids and a family. just sucks... thats all, im just down on it today. nomrally it doesnt bother me, but with the fear of cancer lingering, im just so stressed out.

sometimes they do help.. but you know what? my daughter had a nuero in ohio that had her on the WRONG types of drugs, depakote which made her so fucking sick it wasnt funny.
i move and change nueros.. and she is suprised at how SUTPID the other doctor was, she was on medicien for different types of seizures than she was having. Not all doctors do it for the right reason, i had to fight hadn and foot for other tests.. and also for an EEG to prove how many seizures she wreally was having because they said i was exagherating.. funny when they got the results they shut the fuck up becuase she was haivng more than twice as many seizures as i told them originally.. just cuz a "doctor" says something, doesnt mean its right.


i know they help some people and thats great.. i just wish i didnt have to give her 3 different tpyes and nothing changes.. we added a new medicine a few montsh ago.. still having seizures.. still having the same amount as before. so why is she still on it? if nothing is changing..

This something you're going to have to learn to accept, she's is NEVER going to be like other kids. I know that sounds harsh but it's the truth. It's a grieving process when you begin to accept the reality of her condition because you have to really let go if a lot of the ideas and hopes you've held onto for a long time, it's almost like losing a child because in a sense you are but you've got to accept it. Have you looked into counseling at all? I think you could really benefit from it. I'm sorry you're having a hard time, I know it's hard.

Pretty sure I'm on ignore but whatev :lol:



I never said all doctors have the best intentions. I never said every doctor is right. I straight up said to talk to more than one. I never even said to keep her on the meds. God forbid someone who occasionally points out how stupid you are offers you actual advice

i know, i just cant accept it. I just want my baby to be like my other babies.. and talk and play and do things and she wont. she misses out on so much because of how she is... im sure one day I will excpet it, but i keep hoping that tomorrow she will wake up and be normal...

im stupid for what? your advice was not much of advice... telling me to do if for the "right" reasons.. like who the fuck are you to tell me whats RIGHT when it comes to MY kid.
ive seen plenty of doctors thanks for your non-advice and your bad attitude and name calling. im far from stupid when it comces to my daughter and her problems.

Again, I never said you didn't. I actually said the opposite. :idea:



I think you're a fool. And you know it. So you chose to take legitimate advice as bitchiness. That's not my problem.

OP, I know you're frustrated (and defensive) because you usually don't go off on people like that. I've watched my daughter have one seizure and that was scary enough. I can't imagine watching her have 30 seizures a day, it must be extremely difficult. That being said, Mayhem was being genuine with her advice. You cannot and should not just stop your daughter's medication cold turkey. You aren't a medical professional, in the least. Like she said, go look for another doctor. Her current one isn't set in stone. You need to be her advocate and snatching her off of medication is not good for her. She needs to be weaned and a good doctor will definitely help you with that. You don't want to stop her medication then have something go wrong, heaven forbid. It will be on your shoulders.

Dear god. Pretty sure she said that you know your kid best.



For the right reasons = because the meds are making her quality of life worse. Not because you hate pharmaceutical companies
