I am married to a wonderful man who met me at summer camp for children & teens with epilepsy & 8yrs later he asked me to marry him. I am extremely lucky to be able to do all the things I can do that some of my friends can't & one of my top priorities is epilepsy awareness & education.
I have a degree in education & I am certified teacher. I have had epilepsy since I was about 7/8 & have never once thought I couldn't do something I wanted to b/c of it! I have the best parents anyone could ask for & they never once let me think any differently & encouraged all my dreams.
So many famous & influential people had seizures or epilepsy & most people dont even know it. One of my fave quotes "If you think epilepsy stands in the way of achievement..........look again." ~~ Vincent Van Gogh - yes that's right he was epileptic too. I have epilepsy it does NOT have me. It doesn't define me but it is part of me If you cant handle it I don't need you to be part of my life & If you don't want to learn more about it don't make judgements or believe everything you are told or see, ignorant people pretending to know something is the one thing that will make me really mad! LOL
