There is no way I can or would ever want to deny that I now have epilepsy. This has become one of the themes of this blog, I like sharing news I find interesting or are important about epilepsy to help other patients and to make people aware of this, but I want people to know that it’s a neurological disorder marked by having more than one seizure.
I don’t want people to be afraid of this, but to have knowledge on how to deal with epilepsy and seizures in case they are ever faced with a situation when they need to help some one.
As part of National Epilepsy Awareness Month, I thought it may be appropriate to dedicate a blog post to this.
Below I include some information about what epilepsy is.
What is epilepsy?
There is no shame in talking about it or sharing this, it’s part of who you are, who we are. I think this is an important part of us that people should know.
I hope to make people aware about this disorder and help everyone know more about it. For more information go to www.epilepsy.com or go to their Facebook page.
Stay informed and #TalkAboutIt

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.
