    @stace85 hi, and welcome to scopes online community. I'm Tammy one of many of the volunteer community champions here on the site. It's great to see new names /people joining us here. This platform is great if you feel lonely, there's always a friendly person /team member and other people that come on the site that you can talk to and share your experiences with, and you may get to know others that are experiencing similar things and may be able to support one another.
    It's sounds like you are doing and amazing job with your boys especially having epilepsy yourself.Do you have people close by that can support you? I haven't got children myself but I understand how challenging life can be living with someone with illnesses /conditions etc as I have a rare disease and I was a nanny before I got very ill and alot of children I've brought up had ADHD and my partner has autism and life can be tough for both him and myself but somehow I get through it and I'm sure you will too. And as I said above if you need to talk to someone feel free to message myself or other community champions etc so you know you aren't alone. If someone doesn't know much about certain conditions /or are unsure there's always someone who can point you in the right direction.
    Sorry for the very long reply, but I hope to speak to you soon, enjoy the community and take care and stay safe, 
    Tammy.
