The T.L.E. I experienced as a child was characterized by confusion and compounded by ignorance and minimization of the disease by those around me. Later in my life the neurological tests done in order to obtain some clarity yielded little useful information. (Neuropsychological testing has been the exception.) Alcoholism also existed in my family adding other ingredients to the pot. What is neurological and what is psychological? How do emotions and disease interrelate? Can fear cause or predispose one to seizures or is the anxiety mainly a symptom of the T.L.E.?
