I have finally come to the realization that there is nothing wrong with letting people know that I do have epilepsy. I just hope that me writing some of the things that I have been through will help even one person see that they are not alone and that things can get better. I know it is a long long road and it is very hard to cope and deal with. When I was stuck not able to move for so long and had to rely on my cousin for everything. He had my apartment set up for me so that I had my medication right by me and I could reach it . I think I have been tried on every medication that is out there for epilepsy and seizures. The doctor had even mentioned to me about going to a short term facility and that thought scared the heck out of me. I was very very determined on getting back on my feet and getting some sort of my life back. And now a year later I am up mobile and able to go out. I have to be very careful of firetrucks, ambulances , police cars , hazard lights even on a car. I had a rough time at Christmas due to the Christmas lights and even some television shows. I find that one show that really bothers my epilepsy is Entertainment Tonight. I cant sit in the dark and watch television but am so lucky compared to what I was a year ago. A year ago I existed and today I am living again.
I hope to have other people post their stories about epilepsy as well as any questions that anyone may have.
