2B brutally honest..: Your docs didn't level with you or you're in denial. "functional szs" aka nonepileptic szs or pseudoseizures are psychiatric not neurological. Of course MRI & eeg were normal. You're not having true epileptic seizures. Instead of frankly addressing the underlying psych issue, you're distracting yourself (& others) with "szs." face the real problem squarely & you won't need to act out with szs..
