I was diagnosed with focal epilepsy in 2012 at the age of 17.
I was taking my driving lessons a month before I had my first seizure, I was extremely excited of having my independence and having my own car.. Only for all of that to be wiped from my dreams.
I have lost a lot of indepence since then with my seizures increasing every year. They are still not controlled but I am driven to get on with my life.
I am currently working as a supervisor at costa coffee and also studying Forensic Psychology at university.
I believe that epilepsy is not as well known about as it should be and one day I am determined to make sure that it is, just like a lot of people probably are too.
