The new seizure medication is not working. Larissa's seizures have decreased and are now very short in duration but they are not gone. However, they have had an impact on her mood. The above picture is a good example of how she feels these days.
I asked her if she was tired...no.
I asked her if anything was wrong....no.
She falls asleep all day long and seems very depressed. She is very touchy and irritable.
It is so frustrating. Her seizures do have an impact on her ability to learn and retain information. They also impact her daily functioning because of her constants state of tiredness. However, I will take those issues over the depression. She is 8, she shouldn't be depressed.
