I didnt have a choice on being born and with all the Epilepsy and problems. I do have a choice to never have children and not have an innocent child being burdan with a lifetime of problems. Im 50 now with no children. Makes me sad and happy.
I've cried every day for the past 3 weeks and I feel like I have limitations. My parents fuss at me even if i'm late taking it by 20 min. I know it's important to take it every 12 hours. It's been like this on and off for 3 years even with changes of medicine. I can't think or feel like I can't do anything right just because of this. I'm not like my friends, I went through elementary school being made fun of and I was recently made fun of by some freshman. I just can't do it anymore.
to my fellow persons w Epilepsy...yes seizures suck and they can destroy your life but WE CAN be stronger and epilepsy does NOT have to define who we are. Dont ever give up, dont ever let the seizures convince you that life is not worth it. Do understand that getting on top of the pain, the daily fears of what should be normal, the depression, the anxiety and yes the seizures will help you to feel more in control. I have struggled with epilepsy for 36 years and I have at times absolutely felt the same way but I wont let that run my life. God is in control, and through Him we can learn to trust what life has given us and work with it. No, it will not always be easy and yes things are much harder for us...but dammnit besides all of that we are some pretty awesome people. We are funny, smart as hell, braver than most and incredibly understanding. We have courage that surpasses the highest mountain and talents deeper than the seas. We are artists, musicians, writers, scientists, politicians even...we are daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, wives, husbands and yes we are mothers and fathers that will LIVE to be grandparents :) Do not let epilepsy win, fight the fight and dont ever give up. YOU are amazing and beautiful...remember, we are together and united in this fight against our brains constantly being electrocuted. You are not alone and my thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved in this battle. I love you, God loves you, and I bet a ton of people in your life love and need you!!! Keep going friend...never give in!

The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
