Christmas Quote of the Day

“Pain is inevitable, suffering is a choice.”

– Sally Komar

As I post one of my last blogs of 2016,  I want to take the opportunity to thank all my readers for their support throughout the year.  Your comments and likes mean so much and show that together we’re doing our job in raising awareness.  We still have a way to go but it’s good to look back and see how much we’ve achieved and how far we’ve come, it puts life and our work in perspective.

It’s been an eventful year for me in many different ways and I look to 2017 for peace and hope.  Having changed my neurologist for a very knowledgeable and respectful epileptologist who listens and has a great deal of common sense, 2017 will see my transition from Depakote to Lamotrigine which I hope will be a great success.

I realize as I see posts which say ‘x’ amount of days seizure free, I don’t know if I have ever had one of those since before going on Epilim/Depakote (Sodium Valproate) at the age of 11.  That was 25 years ago.  I am, however, very fortunate to be able to function on a daily basis even if it is challenging at times.

My intention for 2017?  Continue to raise awareness and advocate for epilepsy, fund raise and focus on my strengths and not my weaknesses.

Merry Christmas to you all and try to have a seizure free festive season!

    1. This is third time around! First I got the rash, second I was on depakote and my doctor was clueless and wasn’t managing my levels and it created partial blindness so hopefully, with a new doctor third time is a charm! So far so good. Good luck with your drugs, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you here!
