I am 5 years old and I have Abscence Seizures. I am happy to tell people about my seizures. After my diagnosis I went to school and announced that “my brian was having an issue but it’s ok its all better now” My favorite color is purple! My mom and Dad are firefighters and I want to do that too! I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers. My dog Penny is my best friend and when I wasn’t on medicine for my seizures Penny helped me. Shes a 6 year old pit bull and alerted my mom and dad to my seizures. I’ve had 1 grand mal seizure and she was my super dog. She was running between my bedroom door and my dad so he went in and I had the grand mal. My mom and I want to help people understand epilepsy. My mom has had some people who are rude and think it’s contagious and I think if I can help I will!!
