I was born on 25 November 2002.
Up until my 15th birthday I had no history of epilepsy. However, on 10 December 2017, I had a seizure in my sleep followed by another on 27 January 2018. Just 2 days before my second seizure I had an MRI scan which showed no sign of possibly having epilepsy. Although after I had two, a diagnosis looked very likely.
I was put on Lamotrigine medicine in February 2018. All was fine until 3 October 2018 when I had a third seizure. It was my first one while I was awake and like the others I don’t remember anything about it.
I was fine afterwards because my parents phoned an ambulance and I went to the hospital with my mum where I stayed overnight. The next day they allowed for me to increase my dose of medicine and I was discharged that afternoon.
A year on and I have had no seizures. I’m glad to have made it this far and I hope that I don’t have any seizures for many more years, if not ever again.
