I now have 2 epileptic children in the family, both have tonic clonic seizures. The youngest who is 1 was diagnosed last week with epilepsy. I am at the moment in shock. These 2 are the first in the family to have epilepsy, no one on either side of the family has epilepsy and now I have 2. Does any one else have more that 1 child with epilepsy. Please tell me how you cope. The last week has been horrible.
