Default Re: Sexual Abuse and Nonepileptic Seizures

Lawrence perhaps you need to read my post again. I was addressing seizures that are observed. The neurologist I refer to is a professor of neurology at a major Ontario medical school, and is a man of genuine compassion and well known to me as a caring person. Surely you recognize that in your wife or any person with genuine seizure disorder, seizures are most common at night and of course are not observed. I am referring to day time seizures that could have the purpose (teleogical direction) of putting others in the neurotics service as opposed to the tragedy of uncontrolled seizure disorders with the real risk of a fatal and tragic outcome they carry. I see no relationship between sexual abuse and epilepsy except where the abuse has been of such severity that anoxic brain injury has occurred. Perhaps I am a little clearer now.
