Ibiza122's Journal, 14 May 2014

Hope you're doing ok!! Unfortunately I don't have any words of wisdom in this department, but I think you should be proud of the fact that you at least come out of it. Every time. Even if it's a struggle. Because remember, the things that challenge us are the most rewarding. Be strong!

Hi. I really feel for you. My hubby suffers from epilepsy. He gets fits now and again and often blackouts. Its very hard to see someone you love going through that. He is on medication that seems to control It a little bit. Just be strong and be proud of yourself for get back up everytime.

feels like im getting sucked into a black hole honestly, i used to get it so rarely but now im averaging on one a month and it sucks balls, at the moment im so ashamed to even log the crap that im eating, this always tends to happen its like a cycle that i cant seem to break....1) get on track to being healthy 2)have a seizure....3) Spiral out of control

Okay, I don't have exactly the same problem as you do, but I do have depression and so does my entire family (On one side)! What worked for my depression will not work for someone else, each person is too different and no one handles it the same way, but I know it's hard to get away from that darkness just always tugging at you, but one thing I did learn is that it is never going away, it's always going to be there and you have to accept it, embrace it even! It sounds silly but once you embrace your "Dark Side" it becomes less daunting. Eating is unfortunately very much connected with depression since your imbalances can trigger many reactions, but trust me - You are rather lucky that spiraling into the fridge is your backdrop! So don't worry too much about it - the more you stress about it, the worse it gets ! Put it on the backburner and try to leave it there! It does NOT define you and it never will!

thanks for those words of wisdom shy :) yeah depression is a b!tc# but the epilepsy makes it really bad and no matter how hard i try to accept it i just cant accept the epilepsy part of it and i think thats what makes it so hard for me....but ur right im not going to let this define and control me, from tomorrow il start relogging things and taking control of my own situation and not letting my life be dictated to me by a stupid medical condition!!!

Ya unfortunately I can not relate to that, can only imagine how hard it must be ! But you are not what the Doctor says or what happens to you, you are who you decide to be and no one can ever take that from you! So decide that you are stronger and better and happier than ever and live up to it, you only have one life and even though it might have hardships in it, you can still make it your own and live the s##t out of it !! :) Good Luck!
