Hello Felicia,

Actually, you are doing Good letting your Daughter have her own room. Should have been done Long Ago!

Is your daughter on any medications? Do you or her keep a Daily Journal? More Info on page 3 of Tips. How can you Help her? By Educating yourself & her about All aspects of Epilepsy. Plus, it mite be a Good Idea for both of you to talk to a Counselor. She needs to talk to a professional about her Fears & how to overcome them.

Another Good Idea, if she hasn't already, I would recommend she join an Epilepsy Teen Support Group. epilepsy.com & Facebook can Help! Or if you have a Live Support Group in your area, please Go! Visit efa.org & use Search to Locate a Group near you, if any.

As a Caretaker you deserve Support, too. Please visit anytime you have any concerns or even if you just want to vent. We will be Listening.

Hugs & Merry Christmas. Love Candi
