Age Diagnosed: 1
My daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy shortly after her first birthday. We have been truly blessed that hers seizure are mostly controlled with medication (averages 1 to 2 every 6 months). Although hers are under control we have still had to deal with the side-effects of medication and the fear that people such as sitter, teacher,nursery workers ect, have when the find out she has epilepsy. Their fear comes from a lack of knowledge. That’s why I want to help educate our community that it isn’t something to fear and people with epilepsy can still live life to the fullest.
