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.

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.
