We exist to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

I try to forget about epilepsy.

But I know that I am different from normal people. I try hard to lose weight but I am fatter than others because I am epileptic. 

My weight increase is due to medication I want to learn to drive but fear causing an accident if I had a fit and so I try to pretend it is not that important to me.

Equally, I try not to want to have children for fear of causing them harm in some way. I try being happy and positive but often the only way is to pretend.
