Hi my name is Thea for Theodora and my age is 16 and I still have epilepsy.
Everyone calls me Thea at school and I have difficulty speaking and with language. I found out I had epilepsy when I was in year 7 or year 8.
I am feeling lonely with epilepsy and when I'm in class I feel left out because everyone else doesn't have epilepsy and I don't know if they know about epilepsy. When I have my seizures I feel terrible when people stare at me.
Sometimes I feel I don't know how to do stuff and sometimes I feel left out in football training because everyone in the football training does not have epilepsy.
I feel I am trapped inside me and can't get out and then when it comes to my friends sometimes we have arguments and then sometimes I have a seizure and I don't know how to tell some people.
