Introduction --Jean from Michigan

Hi all,

I just wanted to introduce myself.  I'm a 38 year old woman from Michigan and I was diagnosed in 1995.  My epi is well-controlled, after finally finding the right drugs for me.  I'm on Keppra & Lamictal.  Since they have a side effect of depression, I also take Paxil.

I heard about MedHelp in a Yahoo group for MS.  I was just diagnosed with MS in the last several weeks so I'm on my adventure with that.  The blessing of having epilepsy is that I had already gone through the emotional process of acceptance with that -- and now it is a bit easier to accept this new MS diagnosis and not be as scared.

Since I've been "around the block" with epi, I'll make an effort to give my insights to others.  I hope I can help someone along the way, just as I'm hoping the MS forum will help me deal with my next challenge.

Best,
Jean
