Trouble expressing thoughts.

Hi, I'm 24 and have just been diagnosed with epilepsy. I've not had many seizures but was given the diagnosis due to the severity of the seizure. Since my last seizure my ability to communicate my ideas and thoughts had been really affected and I find it incredibly frustrating. I'll forget words I've known all my life like Oven or Lamp and it just makes me want to cry. Any advice?
