Epilepsy Awareness Month 2017

My bad, I didn’t give November the welcome it deserves being a very important month. No, I’m not talking about thanksgiving, I’m talking about Epilepsy Awareness Month.  This doesn’t mean that we need to take extra care of our epilepsy, we have to do that all year, but share our knowledge and news about epilepsy. … Continue reading Epilepsy Awareness Month 2017

Two years and a half

I stopped my monthly count once I reached 2 years of being seizure free but today marks two and a half years seizure free and I think that deserves a recognition.  It's not just two years anymore, it's over two years and I am so proud of that. There have been challenges since April like … Continue reading Two years and a half

The first time I remember being told … Continue reading The first time I heard I have epilepsy

My first driving lesson after officially being seizure free for two years

Tonight, at my third driving lesson in my building's parking lot and my first time behind the wheel as a two year seizure free woman I felt more in control and sure of myself.  Did I mention I have been seizure free for two years? Maybe I just feel safer because of how happy I … Continue reading My first driving lesson after officially being seizure free for two years
