Damn it. I Should Read the Internet Less.

"One recent study that followed patients for an average of 8 years found that only 33 percent of people have a second seizure within 4 years after an initial seizure. People who did not have a second seizure within that time remained seizure-free for the rest of the study. For people who did have a second seizure, the risk of a third seizure was about 73 percent on average by the end of 4 years."

January will be my three year anniversary (if you will) of my second seizure. Damn it all to hell.

Remember those are averages. 27% didn't :)
