Help. I have 2 epileptic children.?


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.

    I dont have children who have it but i myself do,there is no hard and fast rules to stick to as you will not know when exactlly the children are going to have a siezure unless there is a warning with me it was a trance-like staring, the epelepsy did'nt so much effect me untill i got to be a teenager when i realized that i could'nt do what i wanted to do,or go anywhere on my own without haveing to inform someone,im now a single mum of three kids and have qualifications that i never thought i would be able to achieve,although i still cannot do the job i want to do.

    I would'nt worry most babies grow out of it my mum and dad coped via going to the doctor and asking for advice
