I was re diagnosed with epilepsy aged 13. My seizures are triggered my stress and tiredness amongst a few other things. During my GCSE's I had a seizure during my history exam. But that didn't stop me from carrying on with the others. I carried on to complete my as levels but the stress of that made my epilepsy worse. I then made the decision to go to collage to study childcare. I am now a few months away from completing my degree with the Open University and working full time as a teaching assistant. My seizures are under control and I am enjoying life to the full.
