I was just diagnosed with Epilepsy on 2/23/17. I have JME. I used to have mini seizures that just looked like jerks of my arm almost every morning and sometimes late at night. I had my first seizures when I was 13 and that scared my family a lot , my mom call the ambulance and I went to my pediatrician who did nothing and tried to blame it on stress. I had another seizure in January and that's when we knew it wasn't stress. I went to the neurologist and that's when she told me I had JME. I was scared and sad because I had previously heard of epilepsy and I never wanted it but sometimes life isn't fair. The neurologist said I should live a normal life all I have to do is take keppra pills in the morning and evening it's been going good so far. I'm almost 14 I hope JME doesn't control my life because my mom treats me like I'm special or not my age cause of my condition. I hope I will someone who understands what I go through just knowing I have epilepsy.
