My mom Ramona Lea Le Pore has been confirmed alive when will buy the Moreno Valley sheriff in California. Corrupt Power of Attorneys and Nevada Playing God

Due to very a very malicious man Mike Bunker, who became my mom’s and dad’s power of attorney illegally in California where I used to live; he stopped me from seeing my mother for over two and a half years. Never is one person, family or not, supposed to govern the financial and medical affairs of a senior. Why is that?

If there is an abuse entrust then everything goes to hell that’s why as in my case and my mom case.

My mom was diagnosed with COPD 2 years ago and my stupid brother was bringing her cartons of cigarettes and dumping them on the doorstep how is that for stupid? I would not buy her cigarettes the mother she begged me to because I didn’t want to be have been in my head giving her lung cancer. I wanted to know that I just did good things for her I gave her my time, effort made meals for that I knew she loved and wanted to make during the time of my stay there from 2001 till almost 2 years ago I wanted to make sure I did my best for her.

if it’s your mom and me couple years ago for Thanksgiving dinner when I took her out wearing around for dinner nice new outfit that I bought new shoes new everything and I figured that time little bit I know how much hell would be in store for me and I nearly would almost die, nearly strangled to death by someone i thought was a friend, because Nevada lowered my social security forcing me to live with others. A whole host of other things that happened and I’m still here to talk about it. But its pretty bad when the only way to see your mother is on the face of a mug!

Or on a 16 x 20 mural of mom and I before Mike Bunker abducted her from the Yockey address in Garden Grove, with no note forcing me to file a missing Persons report! Again, what a disgusting man.

She was so happy when I left…no goodbyes. He traumatized my poor mom…facts.

I would need to get paid megabucks to live in California or be hired for my abilities instead of denied because of my disability.

I was the only one to look after my mother’s welfare and cared about what she thought. As a person with Alzheimer’s disease live who doesn’t understand what’s going on, nobody explained to her that by signing this contract that Bunker was going to become a power of attorney of everything related to her.

You can’t hold someone that to sign a contract when they have Alzheimer’s disease cause they don’t know what they’re signing.

The attorney that did that should go to prison…..and I want to see him go to there so he cant draw void contracts on anyone else.

The repercussions that happened for signing that contract made my life a living hell and made my father’s life hell it made my mother’s life hell and I’m the only living one really to talk about it all. My mother but she can’t really fight, can she?

Mom was made to sign the contract making Mike Bunker power of attorney on all of her affairs. Dad gave him debit cards, bank account numbers and the works!

If I’d been there explaining this to her, instead of my brother Mike, the contract would not exist because she would have understood what her signature did. I did not know that.

One week after my dad died Bunker was in my mother’s house taking everything out of it ….everything from their plasma TV, stuff in the freezer, and he was laughing about it and thought it was a joke. It wasn’t a joke and after throwing me on the street, not caring if I lived or died the week before Christmas …I had to leave the state and live where it was cheaper….Survival it’s called.

I want just be served, and it will be.

I have so much evidence on him from photos of destroyed property, etc, to proof he had a family meeting at the Hyatt Regency on his birthday. Dad was dying at Chapman Care senior home then.

His sick, demented sense of humor will be coming to a halt very soon.

wasn’t hilarious nothing was funny about it all disgusting he took the stereo equipment he took everything he took a lazyboy recliner that my parents sad and everyday to watch TV together and it was hacked up thrown in the garbage can and I have photographs.

I have been in communication with district attorney about elevating the existing civil case to criminal level.

He made his bed but its just pathetic someone could be so lowly to do that for a cash payoff.

Whatever he promised two brothers and my sister, that they would sell out family that they would basically betray me and throw me away like I was garbage. I went on in spite of it all.

My mother is my only family I will claim, the rest I am ashamed of for one reason or another.

He forbid me even talking to her on the telephone. He lied to me, told me I didnt count and evicted me from thr property in Garden Grove the week before Christmas 2 years ago. Is that a winner?

He thought I never come back and insulted me with names that aren’t G rated.

First things first.

What kind of monetary settlement would you charge if someone stops you from seeing and talking to your mother for two and a half years?

What would you want to do that person what if they destroyed personal property of your parents?

I’m asking the world this because right now I have pictures I have evidence I have enough evidence written in photographs that I could put him in prison for the next 25 years.
Not to mention not seeing I got what my dad wanted me to have when he died.

art of me wants to but I’ve got to go and examine the situation and see how she’s being treated. I want to see in writing where almost half a million dollars went, which was the proceeds from my parent’s duplex.I want to see it in writing.

When my dad passed away over 2 years krosis and stroke several years ago as told by three probate attorneys absolutely without a doubt I’m old some money for my dad well I didn’t receive that because god knows how much of it the power of attorney embezzle. Even if it was one cent my dad had, I want it and by CA state law I am listed as the youngest child of four dad had. The state should have seen I was awarded something by CA law. The state didn’t the sherbet which is why I’m kind been contacting the district attorney in Sacramento.

Three attorneys lied to me and let’s just say I don’t want to pay money to pad some shiny shoes guy with a fancy brief case, like I did when I divorced in 2001.
How would I handle it myself and if we would’ve gotten lawyers involved in the case when the going on for 12 years! I probably could have written in the insurance policy in a really big only settlement because of the best of times the ex husband was a pretty damn good guy and he is a real rocket scientist if we did it ourselves that would have been much better.

This is some of what I been goin through today and throughout the week been really trying one of the most abilitati weeks I’ve gone through in my life I’m very happily relieved to know moms okay and that I finally have corporation from getting ready and they take me really seriously now.

When I lived in Orange County I went to the Garden Grove police department contacted Riverside protect Adult Protective Services didn’t do anything garbage. I called Riverside Adult Protective Services and I told him his moms dead I’m going to hold you liable because so help me God I was calling over and over they never did nothing I wanted to move her to another power of attorney and I wanted to move forward I felt it was better for her and nobody listens the only people that took what I said seriously with the Alzheimer’s Association of Riverside County.

Thank you for to support and your prayers and kind words all over the world. About  100 countries read Totally Inspired Mind now after two and half years.
CONTINUE PRAYING I STAND UP FIR THE PRINCIPKE OF THINGS. I AM MY MOTHERS VOICE BECAUSE SHE CANNOT SPEAK FOR HERSELF.
I WROTE A BLOG POST BY THAT TITLE.

PRAY FOR MY HEALTH, FINANCIAL STABILITY AND LOVE IN MY LIFE.
ENVISION ALL THAT FOR ME AND IT SHALL BECOME REALITY SOONER.

I WILL BE MEETING  with Senator Dina Titus here in Nevada SOON. I SPOKE TO HER ADVISOR TODAY. $549 IS WHAT THEY LOWERED MY SSI CHECK TO NOW! WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THAT?

A FRIEND OF MINE AND ANOTHER WHO IS BLIND GET OVER DOUBLE WHAT I DO. THE SENATORS CANNOT PLAY GOD WHEN returns to a disability, be at physical mental neurological is in my case or otherwise. You can say that one is better than the other it’s not right common it’s against my civil rights for somebody to play God.
I was there with her made meals for her by her clothes because he squandered the funds that she had and I tried to do the best that I could do instead of being disabled and on a very limited income with SSI. I just spoke with the head of the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Department and he assured me she’s fine and I will have total cooperation from them to see my mother anytime I want from here on out and that is the best news I got for the last week. And as you all know who read this blog for over two and a half years she kind of means a lot to me you know without her, I wouldn’t be the courageous, artistic, compassion lady I am. She was my cheerleader, MY ANN SULLIVAN I was a sickly kid diagnosed with complex partial epilepsy at nine years old, choose my cheerleader, we laughed we joke a lot of good times I miss that for two and a half years my bunker and bring a bunker were so vindictive hateful and hurtful but they would even put the phone up to her ear to let me talked to her by phone! Can people be so cruel yes am i cruel now do I ever want to be like that now and I’m gone all it takes is one person to care and because of me my father live much longer than he would have otherwise cuz I’m going to call the paramedics then went up and down the driveway for a good 5 years I’m the one that made sure mom have clothes to wear when my sisters room all the way I tried to give instead of take and I feel good about that. My self respect and that’s huge commodity and very hard to come by they don’t have as much money because I didn’t happen to her bank account but that’s alright have a conscience and peace of mind is what I wanted and to know she’s OK and well taken care of and I can see here for here till the end of time until God allows us to not see each other anymore until she joins dad in heaven….is wonderful to me.

Deaf doctor makes patients feel heard. Attitude is the most valuable possession you will ever carry with you.

Deaf doctor makes patients feel heard
http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/20/health/human-factor-philip-zazove/index.html

What an awesome story! I love people who are disabled to prove that people can do anything else can do.

I did when I bet bypassed a bachelor’s degree and did the work of a master certification program the Chapman University in Orange California. I was the co-founder of the Epilepsy Connection helping people in three countries and various counties in California where I lived at the time.
At the Summit Meeting I held there people paid $250 to hear me speak, and I had a classroom of 50. I created a PowerPoint presentation explaining what epilepsy was but it wasn’t and how you can acquire it and I answered questions with handouts. at the beginning of the presentation I said a friend of mine had epilepsy and that’s why I always cared to help others. at the very end I said by the way, the friend was me.
People took a double take and looked with shock at me sayimg “I never would have known, as they shook my hand and said what an honor it was to meet me.

Anyone can do anything in this world, and we all carry some trial or tribulation on our shoulders.
Attitude is the key most important possession you’ll ever take with you in your life.

Say a Healing Prayer for Paulette L Motzko. Healing Prayer Meditation: Those in wheel chairs, For Digestive Disorders, Arthritis, Neurological Disorders etc

Release Of Life And Healing by Convergence House of Prayer at https://abide.is/prayer/80exnr on #abideis

I had some breakthrough seizures again (now yesterday) and I am hoping by taking my medicine for epilepsy two and a half hours earlier it will give my body what it needs at my most susceptible hours. I also need to make sure I take all my B complex vitamins, pantothenic acid, and other vitamins in the morning with all the rest. 
I am at the max of both Tegretol and Vimpat, so going up on the milligrams isn’t an option, plus I risk detrimental side effects.

Please say a health prayer for me Paulette Le Pore Motzko. I would greatly appreciate it.

May all who read this to my last sentence be blessed.

If you have epilepsy like I do, and even though your medicine works most of time, but you’re not feeling that great because you overdid it -like I did today….
Say this prayer.

If you have cancer or some other life-threatening disease….say this prayer. You will find strength and hope.

If you have osteoarthritis or other crippling ailment…say this prayer.

If you have Alzheimer’s disease or any other didability- physical or hidden- say this very short inspiring prayer I found on the app ABIDE.

You will feel better and I hopr you find strength, as I did.

There are 230 contributors in this day’s issue and some incredible things are going on in the world of neuroscience.

Photography & Grapic Arts by Paulette L Motzko

Diagnosed with complex partial, tempera lobe epilepsy at age nine in January 1971.
If you are intractable like I was and have partial seizures, ask your neurologist about the drug called Vimpat. It has the highest success rate of any drug ever created in history for partial seizures. The side effects are extremely low as well.

Also, if you are a woman and are having seizures at your time of the month, ad I used to, before I went through menopause in 2001 and had a tubal ligation so I would never have periods again.
Progesterone has anti-seizure properties to it and around a woman’s period it causes a drop in progesterone, hence the seizures! I had this my entire life and hemorrhage every month, until I did extensive research and coined the search words: women, hormones, intractable and epilepsy and my diagnosis appeared:
catamenial epilepsy.

The first step in getting the help you need is knowing you have something.

Doctors do a lousy job of asking the right questions to see if a woman with repeat seizures has them only during or before their period. I diagnosed myself through hours of research.
After Nancy Tobin at St. JUDE Medical Center tied my tubes, took out my womb, and left my ovaries in for hormonal reasons, I LIVED a totally different life.
No mood swings, no excess bleeding, causing an almost anemic iron deficiency, and I felt great because I was seizure free.

I tell my story to help the millions of women who are suffering now but don’t know there are options because their doctors are idiots as mine were.

If I enlighten one woman and help one, it will make me the happiest lady on earth. If I help more, which I know I will, then it was worth something.
Most women who are intractable *having seizures that are uncontrolled, even with medicine therapy, they are having the hormonally aggravated kind. Nobody has ever diagnosed them with catamenial, so they never get the help or medical intervention they need.
The medical and neurological community needs to work on that big time!

Transforming My Mind, My Being and My Future by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

Copyright June 2014

Photo taken in my old place-the duplex I lived in rented from 2001 to 2013. My dad made the bookshelf for me in 1984. The house was sold for $460,000 to some rich Vietnamese in Saigon Garden Grove last year. The photo is history of a time that will never be again. My dad bought the duplex with me in mind in 1984. Ironic it is that I would be thrown out of it like rubble from the siblings that were once respected family. One good probate attorney will get me my share of the estate of my dad’s, that I never got. I would rather simply get what I have coming to me by CA State Law.

Anyone know of a good probate attorney, let me know his or her name. I need one who will take me case pro bono or who will agree to take their fees out of what I am owed.

TotallyInspiredPC@gmail.com

Here I am sitting in the tranquil yet massive library at The University of Las Vegas, Nevada. I just went into the Student’s Service’s Building and talked to 3 wonderful young ladies that gave me a starter package, map and the directions to go to The Disabled Student’s Service Center. Knowing they were going to close in five minutes, I still wanted to orient myself with where the building was, so I could come back tomorrow. From the glass window on the steel door, I saw a beautiful, dark haired young lady wearing a pastel flowered dress emerge from the door with a white cane. Though she was blind she directed her gaze directly into my eyes as though she could see through my soul. She said her name was Rachel and she was the Director of the Disabled Student’s Program there. When I said I had epilepsy and wanted to finish a Bachelor’s Degree in either Communications or Journalism; I know I was in the right hands. She didn’t let her disability disable her or her true potential. Already I knew I met a lifelong friend and her presence inspired me to do great things and to work for others who are disabled showing anyone with epilepsy can accomplish anything.

I know if I never saw my mother again, who will be 83 years old on June 19th, 2014-which I will again-just not yet-I gave 13 years of my life to my parents and helped them pay their house payment by choosing to live next door to them. I made meals for them and stayed when I was offered jobs-but Mom needed me.

Mom has a staff of people helping her 24 hours a day where there was only me.

It is my time to thrive and to know I did my best and not what was easiest, but what I wouldn’t regret. I know each day will continue to get better and I will meet new people every day that I am here in Nevada. Where ever I go I hope to enlighten, educate and inspire and show others how not to give up.

I think that is why I was put on this earth really. You figure I nearly died four times, was almost killed in a fatal car accident back in 1990 and it was apparent that it simply was not my time to leave this earth. My good had not been done yet. The lives I would then impact with the books that were yet to be written, and are in the process-still had to be finished.

Life is like a rippling in a tranquil pond and the ripples that encircle the rock (like the actions you take) ripple outward to unknown passages. They not only affect the person you are helping, but in changing their life, you also change other lives they touch, and on and on.

In looking at all the many buildings here at UNLV and the specialties and sub-specialties contained in each; I know that the sky is the limit and about anything I would want to do, it will be made possible with student grants helping turn my honor roll GPA into a specialized program tailor made for me.

I will make you a bet that some of the blogs I have already go towards my work experience in a Communications degree or Life Experience at least. Even if they didn’t, all of it will make me ace the program I go into. I have 80 cumulative units from Golden West College in Huntington Beach, CA. My Associate Arts in Piano Pedagogy was attained in 1986 so we will have to see how many of my GED’s apply here. I hope most of them. AT the time I couldn’t make up my mind whether or not I wanted to be a Sign Language Interpreter or teach piano. I had many deaf friends and wanted to speak to them more fluently, maximizing our understanding. I finished all but some advanced classes and idioms in the sign program. I could probably get a degree in Special Education quite possibly. I am looking and thinking of all avenues here. At the time, interpreters could not explain to the person anything other than what was said in a class setting. I was very upset, when hearing from the counselor that I was supposed to take some bogus oath that I couldn’t explain to the student. What is the point then, I asked? I was told, I want Special Education, then I can explain. I guess they did away with that stupid law and now sign language interpreters don’t take any oath to interpret the concept only, and can do what’s needed so understanding is achieved. It’s about time. I did enjoy working with developmentally disabled people with Dayle Macintosh years ago when I taught them to count change and cook, telling them in sign language how. I also taught 2 children piano who wore two hearing aids, piano by changing the audible to visual. They heard vibrations and sensed pitch and did the seeming impossible.

Then I will request the transcripts from Chapman University in Orange, CA and see what my Master’s Certification in Voluntary Leadership equates to in Units, or how it applies to what I am doing now.
It is both a discovery and exciting all at once.

In a week I will be meeting with Christian the son of the owner Arturo Marquis of Mama Maria’s Mexican Restaurant in Las Vegas. I am going to write a Feature Story for the family and shoot 100 photographs for them, and conduct an interview with Christian, telling the story about how the restaurant evolved. That will bring me needed money, since with the move, hotels, Greyhound bus fare and a host of expenses-a week is about all I want to go on $20 with.

Financially things are at a temporary lull, but since I am settled now, in a week things will look brighter and I will be involved on a new exciting project. I enjoy what I do and there is nothing better than doing what you love and making money doing it. That is what my upcoming workbook called “A Fire in Your Soul” will be about.

My cook book has been moving at a snail’s pace, but I will begin to make progress on it once again. For now it is called “You Think You Don’t Cook, huh? Think Again!” by Paulette Le Pore Motzko.
This year some of my newsletters I created last year I want to promote in new and synergistic ways. My “Quest For A Cancer Cure” I want to show to places like The American Cancer Society and then monetize it with adds related to cancer and therapies that will help someone diagnosed with cancer, but will make money for the project. I also want to show The St. Jude’s Children Foundation, because every dime donated goes to cancer research.

My newsletter called “The Epilepsy News Source” I want to show to CURE-Citizens for Research for Epilepsy-because I know what I created has never been done and covers topics like neuroscience, epilepsy, neurology, patient, health, mind/body/spirit medicine. I would like to contact pharmaceutical companies and have them place ads on it monetizing the newsletter and raising money for epilepsy research.

The way I would describe about me going back to college and expanding my mind, my potential and just happening to get a degree from it.

If I were a vessel I would be a glass vase full of small white flowers. By learning and expanding my horizons, in one year, if you took that same vessel full of flowers there will be double the blooms! The capacity of who I am and what I have done can be maximized so I will be able to earn a living doing something that makes me financially stable.

By learning more than what I now know, I am altering my field of reference and the ideas and concepts I know and it allows me to accomplish and do things I might have never, meet class mates I would have never and be forced to do assignments that will test my reserve and resolve to finish what I began. I love sort of thing and thrive on it. That is why as a teacher of piano for 20 years; you cannot compare a class experience to a computer or satellite one. I know there are those who will argue, but you don’t have the compounded intellect of a class room working together, fueled together to answer the questions of the instructor.

I am smart enough to know that by those very people in the classes I will take come September, will enhance my life in new ways never imagined.

As a person who knows up-close-and personal what having two parents with dementia was like, and watching their lives atrophy and their minds stagnate by not staying active reading and learning and doing stimulating things; I don’t want to be like they were and follow down that same path. I want to keep doing and becoming for as long as I live and creating new things that help others-be it a story, a poem, a recipe, a book, a newsletter, a resume, a presentation, a captivating or a song that you can sing with words.

I was blessed with a creative mind that can see complex processes and never realized it until going on Vimpat 3 years ago. The drug created by UCB in Belgium had only a handful of side effects, none of them severe, and a success rate unparalleled by any other in history. I went on it when I found it in my neurologist’s office in a neurology book and asked if I could take it with Tegretol as an adjunct drug, and so I did. A new life with a new mind is what I lived, and health was mine, and my mind was able to think in new ways I could never before. Quite a miraculous change from a lady who used to be in my “chariot of fire” red scooter because I had more than 50 simple partial seizures a day from intractable catamenial epilepsy.

I will be going to apply for Medicaid here in Nevada, and was told two years ago by a director of the Social Service Dept. of Nevada, that it would be easy to apply for. I should be eligible immediately because they can verify I had Cal-Optima in California, the only reason I stayed in CA was my medical insurance, but with no house, no home, it wasn’t much to stay for.

And so with sparse funds and all the rooms for rent in San Diego County becoming available in July-I left Orange County, CA for greener, cheaper pastures in the windy desert of Las Vegas, Nevada. After a tumultuous start, moving around from room to rent 3 times, looks like the 3rd time is a charm.
I guess in looking at this, 1834 words later, I can show it to the career counselors to help them understand what I have done, and what paths will best make the most of what I possess.

Just remember, if you are over 30 years old, don’t stereotype yourself as “you’re too old”, putting yourself out to pasture like an old cow or sheep. As long as you live and breathe, let it be a day you learned something, did what you truly love and are blessed and talented to do. Life will never ever become boring, if you do. Take a class, learn and make some new friends. Maybe you don’t want to go for a degree, that’s fine. Take a class or two about something you have always wanted to know more about. Venture out on your own. Make your own blazing trails.

 Keep “using it so you don’t lose it” above the neck and below the waist! That is the adapted version of what my dear Nanny used to say-my dad’s mother who lived with us and helped raise me. She made the most of the least and proved that ingenuity and strength and courage go a long way in this world.

More people have epilepsy than you are aware, but they are afraid you won’t like them, or make fun of them or treat them differently.

Anyone at age can acquire the invisible disorder by having these things happen to them:

1. High fever
2. Blow to their head
3. Convulsions
4. A Coma

Watch your child when she or he is sick and if they have a fever, make sure you get it down quickly by giving children’s aspirin and checking with a digital thermometer every hour until normalized. Also putting wash clothes soaked in cold water put on their foreheads and neck will bring the fever down quickly.

I should know.

I used to be the kid with the high fever and had all those things happen to me and almost didn’t live to my second birthday!

Support organizations like CURE.org Citizens United for Research for Epilepsy who give every dollar donated to new pills with fewer side effects and other medical technologies that help diagnose epilepsy faster so it can be treated.

Be True To Your Best Self

Time Wasted You Never Get Back
Written by Paulette Le Pore Motzko
May 22 and May 26th, 2014
Copyright May 2014
Time Wasted you never get back to invest in yourself and your future. If you don’t live each moment wisely now, you will only have a bunch of lackluster memories and regrets.
Be your best friend and only associate with positive people who are not rude, who do not yell and wouldn’t think of hurting you if their life depended on it. Your goal is to find people who treat you as good as you treat them-which should be with dignity and respect.
Be a giver and do small things for no reason other than you are able to. Not only will it give you countless memories and smiles when you recall all the times that you made a difference in someone’s life, but it will enrich your life too.
Don’t mope about family members who aren’t supportive.
Count your blessings and the friends in your life now as petals of a rose that blooms in the vase of your heart.
When you add enough of those people together, you have a “Bouquet of People” who enrich your life and who you can always count on to care about you. They are your FAMILY. The TRIED and TRUE of HEART, the Kind & Loving-
Those people are who make you shine like an Aurora Borealis light in the night sky.
If a person is there for you in the worst of times, they will be there for you to celebrate the best of times! Remember that.
People change. When people change for the worst, you do the same and change too by not including them in your life!
You owe it to yourself to only let the best in your world.
Making wise choices are a privilege we should use more often.
If someone is helping you, loving; keep them around for a while.
If life was a big brick of Cheddar the bad people are like mold on cheese. Watch out because that “mold” could spread on you and ruin the whole piece!
(People love that one when I tell them! I love picturesque analogies. You remember them!)
Sometimes blood relatives suck blood instead of offering health promoting benefits. If you are sick when you see someone, don’t see them. If the person upsets you uncontrollably-don’t see them. If you have ulcers and cannot afford the ulcer medicine, like I once had-remove the source of the ulcer! I did and I was related to 3 of them! I tell you not because I am flaunting this fact, but because I want to “liberate you” to know it is perfectly fine to not associate with someone-family or not.
When I looked up the meaning of “family” in the Webster Dictionary, I was astonished to see so many variations of the word. For purposes here, I like this basic definition:
“A people or group of people united by certain convictions.”
Although this one fits the general term we think of as a family unit:
“The basic unit in society traditionally consisting of two parents rearing their children.”
If you find that you are always agitated, upset emotionally when you are around someone-simply remove them. It is OK. No horrible repercussions will happen from doing do, other than you exercising your right to be an adult.
By the same token, associate more with those who value what you value, care about what you care about and don’t have a selfish mentality to only focus on them.
Almost three pages later and 600 words later, I am searching for the words that will sum up this article.
Everything has a chain reaction. Make every action positive in your life, including the people you associate with and the activities you do, as well as the words you say. By making a conscious effort to do the things outlined here, as well as employing positive self-talk and not allowing negative, self-talk or words to materialize, you will be editing your life.
I was married to a rocket scientist for 15 years and I think I am still part “engineer”. Engineers are modest people who always think of what they do in terms of “one of the group”, never taking credit for anything really.
I remember when I graduated at the top of my class at Chapman University in their Master’s Certification program in 1997. I was selected by my peers to run a class at The Summit Meeting 1997 that year. People paid $250 each to hear me speak and teach about what epilepsy was and wasn’t, how you acquire it and about the many falsehoods. I was the CEO & Founder of The Epilepsy Connection at the time. I created a PowerPoint Presentation with animations and had an overhead with transparencies that illustrated the many psychological aspects a person deals with when they have the invisible disorder.
In order to say the main points and to create the thing, I remember Mark-my ex-husband the rocket scientist, telling me-
“Do it this way instead: Cross off everything that is false and you will be left with the truth.”
I was doing it the opposite way but after he said that, I couldn’t believe how easy it was to arrive at the main points I wanted people to walk out of there with.
I say this because; you want to represent the truth and purity of intention with no hypocrisy or manipulative people around you. When you think you have found anything other than the truth and the best it can offer, edit it, so you will always be left with the truth, and what represents you the best.
As for the presentation I did for the people at Chapman U. I told them that a “friend of mine” had the disorder and I know I could help others who had it.
At the end of the presentation, I told them “The friend was me.”
People had tears in their eyes, and many did a standing ovation, and came and looked at me saying, “I never would have known!”
I looked back and said, “I know. People with epilepsy can do anything anyone else can and anyone at any age can acquire it by a fever, convulsions or a coma or a blow on the head. I had all of those things and nearly died before my second birthday. I have nearly died 4 times in my life and only want the best of the world to come my way and give the best back as long as I live.

Your Epilepsy News Resource & Important Points To Remember

http://paper.li/PollyMotzko/1356861050?edition_id=c3d762b0-4536-11e3-b25b-0025907210e8&utm_campaign=paper_sub&utm_medium=email&utm_source=subscription

If you know someone with epilepsy, do them a favor and give them the link to this newsletter & tell them to subscribe to it.

As a child growing up with epilepsy, the disgnostic procedures were so archaic by comparison to what is available now.
With the advent of digital EEG’s that only take minutes and are held by gel instead of airplane glue and needles…like when I was diagnosed at 9!
The more you know about the lastest, breaking technologies, diets, and other self care tips, the greater your chance of beating the odds and winning ending up with health and a medicine plan that controls the seizures without controlling your life with side effects.
The worst part of antiepileptic medicines and anticonvulsants are the pages of side effects.

Learn as much as you can through your doctor and get a print out from your local Walgreens showing what things to be on the lookout for in possible side effects.

If you have children don’t let their fevers get too high and bring them down with ice compresses or cold wash cloths and baby asprin as soon as possible. I speak from experience.

Me in the middle front row at 12 years old, with mom on the right, sister on the left, dad (in heaven now) on top right and two brothers on top left and top middle. I was home schooled because I was too sick to attend school for several years. When Tegretol came out and I went on it, I was one they were testing it on. It worked on me though for the first time a pill actually worked.
When Vimpat from UCB came out it made history by having the higest % of success rate and lowest side effects ever. It is made for partial epilepsy, like mine. If you know of someone who is intractable (uncontrolled seizures in spite of taking pills), ask your doctor if Vimpat could be the answer. It was for me now.

Many years before when not even two years old, my fever accelerated to over 102 and I went into convulsions then a coma. I stayed that way in the hospital for many days in St. Josephs Children Hospital in Tucson, Arizona until Dr. Storks found me and helped save my life. I have a Pebbles doll that smiles at me to this day and I think of Dr. Storks who saved my life when I see her smiling back at me.

I would have taken a photo of her and put here but most all my personal possessions have been in storage since April of 2013 when my sister & brother in law evicted me from my mother (Ramona with Alzaheimer’s disease) home I lived in for 13 years…helping make meals for mom and paying their house payment.
Quite a tragic story but the good news is I didn’t do the bad things in my life and instead all the things I have been responsible for have turned out amazingly well.

It wasn’t until I was four years old that I began having simple partial seizures. Later it was finally diagnosed when a neurologist realized the tummy aches I complained about really had a neurological root. A kid doesn’t have the vocabulary to describe what a seizure feels like.

Talk with your child. My second grade teacher Mrs. Zubroad noticed I was having a seizure in my class and that lead to a hospitilization at Palm Harbor Hospital that  would lead to the disgnosis of complex partial epilepsy in Jan 1971.

I am taking Tegretol and Vimpat now and do pretty well.

People with epilepsy can do just about everything anyone else can. I personally wouldn’t advocate driving unless the person has had many years seizure free. I mean 100% seizure free.

I was nearly killed driving about 16 years ago now, and I am so happy I wasn’t and relieved nobody else was hurt. I will never drive as long as I live, even if they upped the anty to a million bucks. I nearly lost everything I worked for, including my future for the price of a little independence. I do the bus and walk a long way every day and have become quite accustomed to the long time it takes, but it gets me there….eventually.

Also a tip for women having uncontrolled seizures especially around your period. The odds of you having catamenial epilepsy are about 98%. I had it from 9 years old until I had my tubes tied in 2001 and my cervix removed, making it impossible to have periods any longer. Every time a woman has her period her progesterone levels drop. Progesterone has anti seizure properties. So when the woman quits having periods there are no longer any more hormonal swings, like I suffered for years with.

I guess this is going to be another book I am writing:

Epilepsy: What It Is, What It Isn’t & How to Prevent IT and Manage Epilepsy To Optimize Life Quality

As the CEO & Founder of The Epilepsy Connection for many years I saved lives in 5 minutes by caring, researching and tuning others into the needed resources in their areas. Sometimes, just talking to a caring soul and knowing they weren’t alone was the most important thing of all. After my divorce to my rocket scientist ex, I had my arms full of just taking care of myself, but I will always be a disability advocate as long as I live.

I hope my words have helped a few parents out there and I hope that some with epilepsy who have been taking risky chances with their life by driving when not being seizure free can hear me say “It isn’t bad. You will live if you don’t drive. You will live LONGER.”

I wish all that read this health and all things wonderful in life and hope…always hope.
