As I said this morning, my appointment with my neurologist was this afternoon. After sitting in the crowded waiting room, and waiting, quickly writing and posting another blog post, and waiting a little bit more, they called my name to go see him.
When my doctor came in, after saying all the hellos, I quickly got to the most important, and only thing I wanted to let him know; that I have been seizure free for almost a year. That I will be officially one year seizure free next week. As I suspected, he was very happy, and told me that he won’t change any of my two anti-epileptic meds, Keppra and Vimpat, for now because the seem to be working ok, and are doing their job.
He does want me to get some tests done, to make sure everything is really ok, and it’s been a while since I’ve had any tests done. But so far, everything looks fine, and I’m really hoping that these tests don’t show anything different, anything that would say I’m not fine. I don’t feel like anything is wrong, I’m just really happy to have this under control, and I don’t want anything to say otherwise. I like these two anti-epileptic medications I’m on, I have not shown any negative symptoms to them so far, they don’t make me drowsy (other than my normal drowsiness in the morning). The best part about them, they have controlled my epilepsy!
One more week to make it official!!!

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
