This morning I woke up earlier than usual, even though I had a long day at work because today I had an appointment with my neurologist. It was just a routine checkup, to let him know how everything is going and of course I was very proud to tell him that, if everything keeps going well, as of next month I’ll officially be four years seizure free!!!
He was very happy about that and about my job, me living in my own apartment, cooking and cleaning by myself. However, he didn’t love that I’m not driving again and wants me to get back on that right away. He said we need to set up a time and place when we can go and practice. My mom and I both agreed that the person who needs to help me practice is my stepdad Jose, he has patience with me, and I’m calm driving with him.
So, as always, it was a very short but pleasant visit; there were no changes to my medications since I have had no seizures, which I have feared. I hate taking so many pills every day but taking them has stopped my seizures so if that’s the price I have to pay for no more seizures, I’m happy to take them. Beside, it’s only six for epilepsy.
Now, let’s start driving again!

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.
