How stress can effect your body, like it did mine.

I went to see a neurology specialist on Thursday about the seizure like episodes that I have been having for the last 3 months. She asked me a lot of questions about my episodes and about how they started. It seems I have what is called Stress Seizures and it is common in some people. It started in nursing school a few years ago. Working night shift and going to school most of the day caused the mild ones. But these last ones seem top be coming from unresolved issues of past sexual abuse at the hands of my Mom's cousin when I was six years old. I never told my parents and actually I never told anyone until last year I told one of my daughters that had been abused by her father when she was a child. I will start seeing my counselor again soon and maybe she can help me get through this difficult memories.
