Hi There -
I have Temporal Lobe Epilepsy - not what one would call the 'normal' epilepsy with catatonic seizures -and my son has BPD. Last year his T put him on the same meds that I'm on & they seemed to work fairly well in stabilising his moods until he became non-compliant.
. Don’t know if that’s a link, but would sure be worth investigating further.
btw - some of my TLE symptoms are actually quite fun - like waking up at 2.00 in the morning & smelling hot, buttered toast (and I'm, the only one in the house
). One of my symptoms causes quite a lot of hilarity amongst my colleagues - I tend to sort of loose my balance and walk like a drunkard. They know that I'm a total non-drinker, which is why I seem to amuse them.
. Not all my symptoms are that much fun, though.
My BPDd 31 also has Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. Shortly after being diagnosed with epilepsy (many years ago) she became non-compliant with her medications.
