Some of you may remember my anger at the health insurance company, which just made me unsure whether I was going to be able to have my medicine, right? Well for those of you who don’t or were not with us at the time, I’ll give you a little summary: After my TBI I was diagnosed with epilepsy. Over a year a go my neurologist found the duo of anti-epileptic medicines that have been able to control my epilepsy, but these are not cheap. After a few months I used the years worth of medicine coverage and we had a lot of trouble paying for it.
I’m still mad at the health insurance, not just mine, but all health insurance companies. Everyone I talk to has a complain about them, whether it’s doctors or patients.
But there is always an angel there to help, and this angel was Vimpat.com. The makers and providers of Vimpat provide support for patients having trouble paying for the medicine.
After running out of both medicines, having to get some emergency Vimpat from my neurologist and buying a new batch of Keppra yesterday, we got three months worth of both medicines in the mail today! This is such a relief, we have to let our health insurance now about this, but there is nothing they can do to us.

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.
