  • Hi there. I can relate personally to your story. I'm 21. I'm engaged too. Getting married later this year. I have epileptic fits on a regular basis and constantly worry about how it is going to affect our life together.I take it you'd be asking in respect to the quality of life you guys will have, if the stress and strain will take its toll, if the fits will take your loved one from you early, financial aspects, sexual aspects, memory and cognitive aspects.? am i right? I can't answer those kinds of questions for you, no-one can, but let me just say,I always worry that my fiance deserves better or wants more or needs a break, but do you know something, he chose me. he loves me, and he wants me. And you chose your partner. You love him, and he loves you. With regards to fits being herreditory or not, sometimes yes and sometimes no. Did a specific event trigger them? was he born with them? are they whats known as 'idiopathic' (without known cause)? My fiance and myself are in a possition of facing the possibility of having a child born with a seizure disorder such as epilepsy same as me, as well as the terrifying thought of what harm my medication could potentially cause. it's all terrifying and we all want the best for our future children. Make sure you seek help with your partners doctor about this one ok? Also, his last fit was 3 years ago was that right? That's a pretty substancial time to go without a seizure, you should both be over the moon about that one! THats so great! Fits have a way of just 'disappearing' and people 'grow out of stages of experiencing seizers' all the time. I really do wish you the best that this has happenned for your man.If you want to talk about it. Or if you need some support, send another forum message with you email and i'll chat to you all you need.God blessLove and best wishes
