I've never written on one of these before, but I was doing some research on Petit Mal Seizures and your title got my attention.
I am a 24 year old female, graduate student. I was diagnosed with Petit Mal seizures when I was 7 years old. The doctors said I would eventually grow out of them in my late teens, early twenties, but they are still alive and kicking.
I have seen a decrease in my later years - Now I can figure out my triggers (flashing strobe lights, stress, lack of sleep, hunger, hyperventilation).
I'm not an expert by no means, but for some reason I thought I'd finally take some serious time and research a disease I have been living with for so long. So, if you have any questions - just let me know. I hope I can be of some help. Not sure how I'd check a reply but I'm hoping it will come to my phone!
Lol. Take care and God bless.
