My family and friends have been super supportive!
When I started having seizures, I didn't know what was happening to me but I knew things were not right . I had my first seizure on my motorcycle. Of course, I didn't know that it was a seizure. I eventually went to the doctor and she sent me for an MRI. A few weeks later, I was told that I had a lesion and I was admitted into the hospital to determine if I was having seizures. I was diagnosed as having epilepsy and put on medicines. I was on many medicines for sometime but continued to have seizures. My neurologist eventually shared that I should consider brain surgery since we found out where my seizures were coming from. On February 25, 2014, I had brain surgery. Things were much better for me overall. I had a few breakthrough seizures as I was being weaned from my medicines. 2017 has been an up and down year. I started to have a lot of problems in April of this year. Things are now settled down again and I am very thankful for that. Epilepsy is hard on the entire family and it is a roller coaster ride. I am very fortunate to have a great support system in my husband,family, and friends.
