of everyone affected by epilepsy

Melissa Jade

At the age of 21 i had my daughter,own house & a career, little did i know my whole life was turned upside down! I had no idea what these fits were, i had 4 in one week which then i plucked up the courage to go to the doctors, there i was diagnosed with epilepsy! Its been a year now & its been so hard, i had to leave my job for health & safety reasons. Im still having seizures at the moment & its trial & error with my medication. Either way im such a stronger person than i was before & epilepsy isnt gonna beat me x
