    Well, good to hear your 'gut feeling' was rite. Oh Boy. Teaching a Teen to Stay Away from Certain Foods. That is IF/WHEN you can isolate which food/foods/beverages cause problems. You got your hands Full there.

    Glad to hear his med is helping, too.

    Love Candi

    Hi Jason,

    Glad to hear that your son is doing well with his medication therapy.

    I hope the two of you can find a diet that he will agree to as candi suggests.

    Your son and you sound like a great team Hugs to your son. Wish him well on this new adventure.

    Hi Jason,

    Your son sounds like many of us. Did we always tell our parents when we didn't feel right or did we try to handle it w/o disturbing them?

    I certainly didn't tell my mother about each seizure. She would have driven me crazy with her over-concerned approach.

    Have you thought about asking him to start a journal like the ones we keep? Jotting down day-to -day thoughts, good or bad feelings, diet, activity, etc. Something he can share with you and his doctors.

    It took some of us time to share our thoughts/feelings/concerns with family and others. Try to give him the same time to open up.

    Take care,
    angie
