Welcoming my 40's with epilepsy

I started all of this, out of nowhere, at the age of about 39. My first doctor told me, after a night of 7 terrible seizures, that it was all STRESS! That was not true! I found the best doctor's in my state and started to visit them. After many, many tests, I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I have had a total of 3 surgeries! The last one being an emergency one. I have tried many different medications, and unfortunately none of them worked for me. A part of my brain is at the University of Boston, to have it be studied. My last two surgeries occurred only about 7 months ago. I am still having seizures. Now, I am looking into brain surgery number 4! Wish me luck!
