Another unstoppable girl, a true fighter

Today I went to see my neurologist. When he asked me how I was I immediately told him I made it 6 months, seizure free. Right now I am 6 months and 1 week, seizure free. The next step is a big one, 6 more months. I am going to take it day by day.

But apart from my great news, today’s visit to the neurologist’s office was new experience, and a great one. It’s horrible to see how many people suffer from this, but it is incredible to see how strong they are. I am not the only unstoppable person. People face this with such bravery; this is just another part of their lives.

Today I was talking to another person who suffers from epilepsy, has suffered from it a lot longer than I have and has different types of epilepsy that I have just read about. I had not met anyone who actually lives with that. I was shocked when I heard her talking, to see her sitting in front of me with a smile on her face, telling me what she had been through. Not wanting me to feel sorry for her, just sharing her story with me, hearing my story and asking me about it.

It was an incredible experience. I wish her the best and hope she can achieve everything she told me she wants.
