I have had epilepsy for eleven years and almost all my good friends and all of my family have witnessed me having a seizure and helped me through it. I keep up-to-date on the disease, treatments, and theories. I am not ashamed of having epilepsy, and share my experiences with anyone who asks. Everyone who spends time with me knows I have it, and what to do if I have a seizure. In many ways, I am already an ambassador.
