We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy


Hi my name is Theodora and I have epilepsy.

I have the seizures if I get too hot or being stressed out. If I don't tell people what I am feeling inside, I will just have a seizure, if I run around for too long I will get too hot, I will have a seizure.

I don't like it when I have my seizures because the children will look what I am doing and I don't like it.

If I get so worried about something I tense up and then have a seizure. If it's in class that can so feel so stupid and then I don't know how to tell someone about epilepsy.
