6 - A marathon and not a sprint

27 July 2020

Patience was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was 14. She has both tonic-clonic and focal seizures, sometimes two or three a week. Patience chats with us about her epilepsy journey. How her sister reacted to her first seizure, how shocked her friends and family were, her struggles with work and an invisible condition and her incredible decision to move her life to a different city. Throughout, Patience maintains her philosophy: ‘Keep in control’. Check out Patience’s new YouTube channel ‘Complete Patience’.
