Out of everything that happened in 2016, the best thing was that I didn’t have any seizures in 2016. Now I have been seizure free for so long I forgot that yesterday marked my 21st month seizure free!!! That makes one year and nine months seizure free, which means I only have 3 months left until I get to the two full years seizure free! This doesn’t mean that it will never happen again, but the odds of me having a seizure are less than they were before.
21 months!!!! This is a great way to start the year and keeps my faith that this will be a good year full of great things.
So far I had only been looking at the bad things coming on to the new year from 2016 (I don’t really think I need to name them), but realizing that without noticing it’s already January 9 got me in a good and positive mood. I couldn’t even see this far on April 8, 2015 when I had my last seizure, but now I can look to April 8, 2017 and see the day I achieve my goal of reaching my first two years.
I know someone who just reached 9 years seizure free and I’m so happy for her. She is my living, breathing example that I can get there. I hope that one day I can get to 9 years seizure free and be an example to others, but first let’s take it month by month.
