We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

Eleanor Bradshaw

I am currently 17 years old and I was diagnosed with complex partial seizures and can go into Status since the age of 4. I have 2 different types of medication, one called carbamazepine which I take 1400mg a day and the other one is called clobozam which i take 20mg a day. I also have a medicine called buccal midazolam which is a rescue medicine to be taken when I'm having a seizure.

I had a brain operation in February 2015 to completely stop the seizures from happening, but they couldn't do the operation because the "birthmark" was deeper than what they thought.
