My whole life I have been through some hard times. But learning to live with epilepsy was definitely the hardest. I suffer from tonic clonic seizures and mine are life threatening. Which caused me to view myself as different from everyone else. It made me question whether my life even had a purpose. But having epilepsy has taught me that we’re all warriors fighting our own battle.
I’ve overcome my depression, and I’ve learnt to be proud of my condition, it does not define me, only I can do so. Epilepsy has taught me to cherish every moment like it’s your last. Although I may never be epileptic free, I’m grateful for the life I’ve been given.
