Two weeks... that is how long I've been diagnosed with epilepsy.
It has been a strange couple of weeks. But nothing has changed; I still needed to hand in my dissertation, I still have exams, I'm thinking about what job am I going to have, how am I going to be able to afford to move out in the current economic climate, and when I do move out should I get a cat?
For two years I thought I was going crazy; déjà vu, intense nausea. The neurologist asked me why I never went to the doctor. I felt like I couldn’t because what would I have said: ‘Sometimes I get déjà vu that also gives me hallucinations about the future’. I tried googling it when it first started happening, I only found one reference to it being a seizure on reddit and there was no way I was going to take medical advice from reddit. After two years of this, it culminated in two seizures (a month apart) that had me waking up on the floor in University and taken into A&E.
I still don't really know how I feel about it all. Relieved? Worried? I dunno.
My achievements? … I’ll get back to you in a few years ;)
