At 17 years old I have been diagnosed with epilepsy. I feel like it would be a great opportunity to let people hear about my condition, and to really express myself to the community.
People with epilepsy share their stories on a day to day basis to be accepted by the outside community. I feel like my story can be relatable just by how young I am and how I'm dealing with the comments and how strong it's developing me.
Its very hard dealing with it because you never know when the next seizure is. You are forever hurting yourself going into a seizure. You can break bones,bruises, busted lips. It's a lot of different things that can take a toll. The biggest thing for me right now is the medication since I'm such a natural herb person. I have a hard time trying to swallow pills, and the side effects I have with the excruciating migraine and being unable to breathe on a day-to-day basis.
