So I was told I have "Pseudoseizures." Those that don't know what that is, it is paroxysnal episodes that resembles epileptic seizures, meaning they are nonepileptic seizures. The are emotional and/or stress related. I had a test done to monitor me and they made me have a seizure to see how my brain waves were acting during the seizure. So, the sleep deprived me for a day and I had a seizure. That's how they came up with the diagnoses, but the test was not thorough. I say this because my parents was given a paper saying there are more than one test to figure out the diagnoses, but they only did one and decided off one seizure. Ok, fine but, the type they say I have comes from emotional and stress related events. Doesn't everyone stress out and everyone has some type of emotional damage. So, why don't everyone has "Pseudoseizures?"...
A few months went by and they stopped calling them seizures, now they are called "Spells." A spell is a period of physical or mental disorder or distress: a dizzy spell. Ok, now the confusion is real if its a "spell," why do I pass out, unresponsive, unconscious, and wake up with no memory of what happened, why am I on the floor, why am I not where I remember being a few minutes ago, and why do I have a weak pulse and stop breathing multiple times during this time? I have questions but can't get answers. It's stressful and upsetting not knowing what is wrong and going on with your mind and body.
All in all, I feel like I am not stressed enough to cause a seizure. I stress about thing I'm pretty sure everyone does, like school grades, work stress, financial stress..the norm.
Dealing with medical stuff at a young age is difficult. I salute the babies dealing with the same or worse diseases, infections, cancers, etc that's younger than me because I'm strong, but they are stronger. I can't imagine their daily struggle compared to mine, they would probably switch in a heartbeat.
