Feeling Like A Freak.
I have had JME for years. Along with that I have dealt with odd looks from strangers, people asking me not to take my medication in public, etc. But it's gotten to the point where it's starting to really effect me again. I've started having myoclonic seizures again. I don't know know how to handle people mocking me, or laughing at how odd it looks. I leave social interactions feeling completely defeated. It doesn't help that I can't do a lot of things that people can do everyday. I don't want to be feeling like an absolute freak forever. What makes things worse is I have to change from sodium valporate to a new medication which will result in me having full blown seizures. I don't think I can deal with it all again. Any suggestions or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
