Most people I know with epilepsy say that their relationships always fail when they mention to their partner that they do have epilepsy. Well, then they aren't the ones for you. They don't understand you and when you are going to love someone you should want them to have consideration of your health.
Now, onto epilepsy and relationships. I've been with my boyfriend for a year and three months. He has been super supportive of my determination to become an advocate of epilepsy. He also remembers the littlest things I tell him. For example, I mentioned that flashing lights can trigger a seizure. Whenever I look away from the TV, if it has flashing scenes, he shields my eyes and you can tell he is concerned. He probably doesn't even realize it, but it means the world to me that he cares.
Epilepsy isn't the worst thing in the world but it does have limitations that can effected your life if you don't take care of yourself. When going into a relationship I suggest putting everything on the table. Let the person you like know you have epilepsy. If they can't deal with that then go out into the world and find someone who can. Find someone who will listen and support you. If you are going to your neurologist find someone who will wish you luck and ask how it went once you leave the building.
Finding a relationship with epilepsy is no different than finding a friend who will accept you. It's just this type of "friend" will kiss you and hug you, and maybe marry you one day. Who knows.
Also I want to give thanks to the people out there who read my posts. They can be long at times but even skimming means a lot.
