“The frontal lobes are considered our emotional control center and home to our personality.”

In 2002, at age seven, my son’s personality took a drastic change. He had always been a very quiet, well behaved child in school. His grades were excellent.

And then . . . something happened. We didn’t know what was going on with him. The teacher started sending home notes like:

“Logan had a very rough day today. He licked everything around him. .  .  He constantly bothers the other children or tries to lick them.”

This was my son, who had NEVER gotten into trouble before at school. He was too shy.

His handwriting went from this in August 2001:

to this is April 2002:

He was diagnosed with frontal lobe seizures–possibly Supplementary Motor Epilepsy. And while his seizures were controlled through medication (Thank you, Jesus and Glaxo), he never recovered the handwriting, but his personality returned to the quiet, shy person we knew him to be(at least in public–at home he has always been a wild and crazy guy who loves to make us laugh).
