I really didn’t keep track of my seizures, my mother did, she shared that information with my neurologist, and that’s about all the knowledge I had about my seizures. As I mentioned before, during my countdown for one year seizure free, I know the date and approximate time because of a text to my friends, but I never thought to write it down anywhere. There wasn’t any calendar for this sort of thing, or so I thought, before I read this:
My Epilepsy Diary
When I saw it I thought, what a great idea! Bu really it already existed, it was called My Epilepsy Diary, which has now been improved and become My Seizure Diary.
This is such a great tool for patients with epilepsy. This app allows users to keep track of seizures, medicines, and doctor’s appointments. I already have an alarm on my phone to take my medicine, but I will now move my alarm to this app, which I already downloaded and started using. It allows you to describe the seizure through a number of questions, some of which I’ll need help answering, but I will start right away.

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.
