Things aren’t always as they seem. Please don’t feel sorry for me and please don’t pity me because of my condition and what it brings. My life is hard at times, yes, and I struggle, but my life is rich, it’s full of achievements, I am loved unconditionally and love deeply. I have the strongest safety net of all to catch me when I fall. I feel contentment, peace and relish the challenges I am given, I am proud of who I am and who I have become. This is largely thanks to the lessons my epilepsy and seizures have taught me. I have been guided in a direction that I may not have walked had it not been for them.
Be proud not ashamed.
If we can allow ourselves to feel this way, others will realize epilepsy is nothing to be afraid of nor will they treat us differently because of it.
