There are many studies out there about spirituality and epilepsy. Supposedly people with temporal lobe epilepsy are prone to spirituality because they have a lesion in the temporal lobe which some neurologists believe is the spiritual center of the brain. Some think that people with temporal lobe seizures are more prone to spirituality because of auras that may be spiritual in nature. Supposedly people with left temporal lobe seizures are more prone to spiritual experiences and people with right temporal lobe seizures are more prone to abandonment experiences. I had a right temporal lobe focus. I've had a temporal lobectomy and found that I am still a spiritual person and am interested in theology and philosophy. One supposed thinker even speculated that if the temporal lobe were to be removed a "Godectomy" would be performed. I think that people who speculate such things as this are limited in their thinking and further stigmatize those of us who are survivors of living with a physical malady. I am wondering if any one will share their experience or thoughts. Thanks.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
