It has been eight years since my last seizure. That’s 96 months,about 417 weeks, 2,920 days and over 70,000 hours my body has been working, along with my medications, to keep my brain’s electrical rhythms in balance.
Being seizure free I have been able to travel, work two jobs, and exercise at least 5 days a week in the past year. I got Covid but no seizures.
Looking back through my memories today I have seen my whole journey from my first seizure free year to today.
1 Year seizure free
Two years seizure free!!!
Four years seizure free!
5 years seizure free!
Vaccinated and seizure free!
7 years seizure free !
The things I have done constantly during these past eight years that I think are key to staying seizure free are:
1- taking my anti seizure medication
2- sleep 8 hours every night
3- exercise and stay healthy
4- don’t drink alcohol
5- attend every appointment with my neurologist.
Eight years is just the beginning, I’m looking forward to many more seizure free days, weeks, months and years.

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.
