    I'm another one who always wondered about this in this case. I do hope her lawyers insisted on her being tested regarding seizure disorder.

I knew someone who would go around putting things in weird places, leaving stuff all around the house, engaging in behavior not within their normal personality, saying weird things, etc. Some people don't fall down into a grand mal seizure but get disoriented or may even start throwing punches or get into fights, stuff like that, with certain types of seizures. My brother has epilepsy pursuant to a head injury he had when he was 12, started having grand mal seizures when he was 16, his seizures look a lot like what JG described. My brother's seizures have been completely controlled by meds for 20+ years now, thank heavens. But yeah a lot of us wonder the extent of any potential seizure disorder in KC's case, and for that matter, the extent of the fantasy life (for example, her fake work emails), what is the extent of this fantasy life in her mind, i.e., how much of it is real to her, which characters might actually be her, is there actually a shifting of identity or consciousness in her mind, is it related to a medical disorder, etc.

    A seizure disorder could explain why she might not remember something, but does not explain why she would perpetuate her lies.

    You might want to look into the psych profile thread regarding the balance of your post, lot of information in those threads.

    thanks for this, that is very interesting.

    It's amazing how more and more, medical/biological causes are being found for things that we used to think were voluntary behavior issues

    I do not believe that Casey ever had a seizure.
    But I do believe that she IS a Seizure to her entire family.
    Women are Angels.
    And when someone breaks our wings,
    we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick.

    We're flexible like that.

    In the Gemeral population 5 yrs ago 1 in every 100 people have a form of seizure disorder. You can google the epilepsy foundation for more current stats. They will also answer any questions pertaining to seizures by just calling their 1-800 no. The more questions asked by lay people the more this disability becomes acceptable in the general population. If I'm correct the jails see more seizures amonst the prison population in people who have behavior disorders. The studies show the Left frontal cortex very active while the right brain seems somewhat dormant. For fun google, "Psychopaths faking seizures." I have a family member who suffers from seizures causing me to utilize the free advice of the epilepsy foundation like they were my new best friends & now they are. Seizure disorder is not cut and dry. As I have stated in the past, "Psychiatry and the law are meshed together to find truth," but this will not interfere with KC's judgement day. The brain made me do it is no excuse for KC in a court of law.

    The Jett Travolta thread helps illustrate the complexity and misconceptions about seizure disorders and their treatment.

    Hello, Everyone- First time poster but a long time lurker. I don't claim to be a professional but unfortunately have too much first hand experience as the primary caregiver to a family member w/TIE (Trauma induced epilepsy) and now SMI (Severe mental illness) due in large part, according to his team of doctors, to years of uncontrolled seizures. Part of what drew me to this case is the similiarities in his bad behavior and Casey's. Status Epilipitcus can be deadly but SUDDEP (Sudden Unexplained Death Due to Epiliepsy) can be also. More interesting (and more on topic) is the many types of seizures. Before I had to deal w/this on a personal level, someone said seizure and I thought Grand Mal. That isn't the type my family member has. He has complex partial seizures and many times, except for some weird behavior that was written off, it wasn't/isn't even noticable and thus went undiagnosed for years. Many of us "space off" sometimes- blank stare, just looking straight ahead w/o blinking- like we're daydreaming. These could have been going on w/KC, especially if she is a heavy drinker. My family member's behavior has progressed to something not unlike what the Anthony family has had to deal with, outside of the murdering. Just the ability to lie completely straight faced w/o any shame or guilt regardless of who he is hurting. He has stolen more money from me than I can count, took the car (knowing he can't drive w/seizures) and has had periods of hypersexuality (again, not unlike KC). He will steal money from our family to buy stupid, needless things (again, just like KC). Unlike the A's, however, he is in intense counseling, has been hospitalized 10x this year alone and is on a cocktail of meds. We don't deny his problems but at first, it was hard to believe. As many here that have dealt w/sociopaths have said, it is hard for a "normal" person to fathom the depths of depravity. My family member now wants help, doesn't want to live like this and willingly goes to counseling and takes his meds but it wasn't always that way. Please don't get me wrong, I am not defending KC and, IMO, I think KC should fry for what she did. Although we don't think my family member is capable of doing anything remotely close to murder, if he did I would aid the prosecution any way I could. Sorry so long but I wanted to throw out there what my personal experience has been and how it relates to this case. Thank you!

    casey's seizure important or not?

    In the original arrest report it stated that in November of 2007, Casey had a seizure and Tony Lazzaro took her to the E.R. I just stumbled upon this article that also states a seizure. Somewhere in all of the documents there is a call to 911 about the seizure with the caller stating, “The caller informed the 911 operator that Casey Anthony was having a seizure. The operator notes that Casey was "unresponsive and shaking" and that she had experienced "nausea all day and was drinking heavily" the night before.”

    http://www.myfoxorlando.com/myfox/pages/Home/Detail?contentId=7953974&version=5&locale=EN-US&layoutCode=TSTY&pageId=1.1.1

    (Last paragraph)

    Does anyone know anything more about this seizure? This is the first I’ve heard of an explanation (drinking) for the seizure. Has anyone located this call to 911 in the documents LE released?

    Ooops yes JG took her to the E.R. but no where in the report did it state a reason for her seizure. Thus, I am wondering where in the 700 page document did LE locate a 911 call made in 2007 about heavy drinking being the reason for the seizure.

    Anyone know why? Was this the first one? Is she epileptic and if so, was her driver's licence restricted?
    I'm not sure what the time limit on driving following seizure is there in FL but in CA, you are restricted from driving until you have been without a seizure for some time. Doctors can face fines if they do not report patients who have had a seizure. This law has been in place since a man ran over several people here about 20 years ago.
    My original post got moved for some reason..Anyway, I am certain I read early on the KC did NOT have a drivers license. I bring this up bc as you said those who are eplieptic cannot legally drive for obvious reasons. I also know that it is standard procedure for a hospital to notify the DMV in cases like these.

    KC does not have a ldrivers license

    correct...KC did NOT have a license.

    "News 13 has learned that she does not have a driver's license, only a learner's permit, so it was unclear how she got around with her daughter." Now I am wondering why GA & CA allowed her to drive. Wondering if she just snubbed her nose to taking the road test or if she had a license that was revoked due to the seizure JG took her to the E.R. for in 2007.

    Say what?! She had no license, yet Cindy and George provided a car for her to drive?!

    Do they live ten minutes at a time, too?! They never contemplated the ruinous financial consequences they might experience if Casey were in an accident?

    Outrageous.

    I'm in the there-was-no-seizure camp. I think it was a Casey fabrication. I wonder what topic of conversation or activity she was try to avoid when she "seized." It seems to me that if Cindy or George said to her, one morning, "We really need to have a talk about what's been going on around here," or even, "We need you to pitch in," she'd find a "seizure" a mighty good way to postpone that discussion. Cindy and George walk on eggshells around her to avoid her wrath--they certainly would not press a Sick Little Princess to do anything she didn't want to do.

    Not buying it for one second.
